At one time having a NYS pistol license took care of the need for the instant check and then NY screwed it up. Line 29 brings the license item up. Is it possible ATF recognizes NY pistol licenses again?
I agree with the Lansky sharpener, but occassionally use a ceramic stick set I got from A.G. Russel to refresh an edge quickly. But then I like the Ken Onion work sharp system and Arkansas stones too! Everything has it's uses.
