  1. Bolt Action [Rifles]
    Hello, I am looking at purchasing an Enfield SMLE MK III* as I like the gun types and am hopping to use it to jumpstart my collet. However this Enfield that I am looking at the stock is different then the typical Enfield as it does not engulf the entire thing and I am wondering why? Is this a...
  2. Suffolk County (licensing/laws)
    I delivered my application the first week of March 2015 and was interviewed, fingerprinted and photographed the first week in October. The PO said it could take up to an additional 4 to 6 months and when my wife gets called I would know that they are close to wrapping everything up. Typically...

    Traveling from FL to NY via vehicle. Don't have a NY pistol permit. Have FL concealed carry and FL drivers license. Have to fly back from Islip to FL. Can I fly out of Islip with FL permit with handgun?
  4. Nassau County [Ranges]
    This should be an easy one but I just wanted to be sure. I signed up for the new member class last month before I had my pistol license. At the time I said I would bring a rifle. Is it ok if I bring my pistol now? Should I call ahead? I am aware of the requirement for new members to carry...
  5. Semi-Auto [Handguns]
    Just purchased Sig P320 Sub Compact in .40 yesterday online and really can't wait to try it. My question is, can I just put 9mm barrel in without buying the whole xchange kit, try to spend as little as possible to go to 9mm. Or maybe just buying the slide with the barrel. any input would be...
  6. Nassau County (licensing/laws)
    I'm renewing a NC business carry and there was one question I had to answer, honestly of course. " Was anyone in your household on parole or probation?" It seems the lad, my son, is on probation for a DWI. Do you think it will affect my renewal?
  7. Suffolk County (licensing/laws)
    I have a question regarding the Character Reference Section of the application. I wasn't sure whether to stick it in the thread that has the direct link to the application or not as I am sure this has come up AT LEAST one other time. I did check the other topics here but could not find...

    What this mean (saw it on the Calendar): Summer Leaguue Air Pistol (Practice) @ Roslyn 7pm Does this mean they are practicing at Roslyn? Or are they practicing at Freeport at 7pm? If so inside/outside? I wanted to go down around 6ish (yesterday) to shoot outside for an hour but not sure if...
  9. Nassau County [Ranges]
    Sooo question... I got the jist of shooting inside, easy enough. I'd like to start shooting outside. I get that I need to provide my own furring strips and targets, makes sense... but few things 1) Everybody shoots at same position, got it. If there is someone shooting a rifle on the right...

    If I want a gun and pistol permit for self defense of my home/family, would I apply as a sportsman or something else? Thanks

    We are going to switch from Cablevision to Fios next week. Fios is offering to either rent the router for $10 per moth or buy it for $150. I figure if we stay with Fios more than 15 months, it makes sense to buy it. The question is if we use coax for TV, can I buy my own router instead of...
  12. AR - [Rifles]
    I'm in the process of putting together a lower receiver, using a YouTube video as a guide. After installing the buffer tube assembly, I realized a different receiver endplate was included in the Thordsen stock kit. The instructions for the Thordsen stock kit are for replacement of an existing...

    So I have this free float hand guard that I paid $100 for a while ago. I go to get it affixed to my AR 15 (Carbine length) and they tell me I am missing a barrell nut and a sleeve, these must have fallen out or something because I cannot find them. Can I order a new barrel nut and sleeve for the...
  14. AR - [Rifles]
    Building a new ar and looking at a fluted barrel to go with it but it's only in .223 Wylde. Can anyone, who shoots one, tell me how they handle non match grade ammo, ie cheap stuff. I'veI've read all different reviews, most people say they shoot everything through it just fine. Sometimes...
  15. NYS and NYC Discussions (licensing/laws)
    Hello Guys, This coming July 1, I'll be able to submit a request for my second pistol purchase order. I plan to get a Gen 4 Glock 19. My question is for NYC residents is it ok to submit the purchase order request in person or should I just mail it in? Too bad we have to wait 90 days between...

    Do I need to do a ffl transfer for the private sale of a pump action shotgun? Thanks in advance, sorry if it's a dumb question
  17. Reloading
    I am getting ready to start reloading for the first time with a Lee Classic Turret press so please excuse a possibly dumb question. I used a Lee depriming/decapping die to deprime the 5.56 brass prior to tumbling. From what I understand, after resizing the brass, you are supposed to measure...

    I'd like to know if I built up a lower using this kit and made it a fixed mag, would it be legal in New Yorkistan? Is there any specification as to barrel length? Thanks...
  19. Competition Corner
    Looking at the information for last year's BoB match, it says "M1 Carbines will be restricted to 10 rounds in the magazine" - does that mean in competition 15 rounders can be loaded to 10? Planning on attending with a friend and his 1944 Inland. He's got plenty of 15-round mags, but only one...
