    I am meeting some friends in and about Poughkeepsie NY this weekend. I am driving from the Syracuse/CNY area across to Albany then south into the Hudson Valley. Any recommendations for stores that sell ammo at a reasonable price?

    Hello From Madison County NY

    Welcome to the forums. Don't mind Bustedknees. He is just being cautious about trolls whose first post is asking people to divulge personal info about themselves or their firearm habits without supplying any info about themselves. I am sure you understand how suspicious this is given the...

    Hello from mid Hudson valley

    Belated Welcome to the forums. Went to college in Newburgh ( don't hold it against me ;)) and spent many summers work at the Mid-Hudson Valley Camp, now known as the Marist Brothers Center at Esopus. Beautiful area! Now living in Central NY but Esopus always a special place in my heart.

    Which Pro-2A organization to join?

    With everything going on here in NY regarding defending our 2A rights and the current attempts by Hochal/politicians to circumvent our rights, I was wondering which Pro-2A organizations seem to be doing the most to defend these rights? I belonged to the NRA years ago but did not renew my...

    What’s the point of 10rd mags if ya can’t use all 10?

    This. This is what it is important to know. It is still a NY state law. The 2nd circuit in Western NY may have struck down the ruling and some western NY cops and DAs might not arrest or try to prosecute but they could try. And, yeah, it might not go anywhere for them but do want that hassle. Do...

    Savage BVNSXP-SR 22LR (Wal-Mart Special)

    Wow! I'm just impressed that the Walmart near you is still selling firearms and/or ammo. The Walmarts I normally would go to in Oneida and Dewitt stopped selling both a couple years ago. I might have to take the short trip from Chittenango to Central Square sometime soon. Thanks for letting...

    who manufactures the BEST 22cal semi-auto rifle

    I went with a Marlin 795 when I decided to pick up a .22LR rifle. It's the same barrel and action as the Marlin model 60 except it has 10 round box magazines instead of a tube magazine. It was lighter and less expensive than a 10/22. It's been very reliable and accurate. A plus is that it...

    No more Ammo and Guns at Gander Outdoors

    I am sure someone else has already posted about this but I was just at Gander Outdoors in Cicero, NY and their gun and ammo shelves were completely stripped. There was no sign or explanation. annoyed because I drove quite a bit only to find out that there is no more ammo. I'm at a loss as to...

    Looks like there will be a Appleseed in Ontario NY....

    I went to Palmerton last October for my first Appleseed Event. There were people from PA, NJ and all over NY: NYC, Hudson Valley and Central NY (me). The people there were great. Definitely bring a mat. I would also recommend elbow pads.

    Pocket gun

    If you are looking for a 9mm pocket gun the Kahr CM9 is about as big as I would go. Although the SIG P365 is only slightly bigger in size and weight, those matter a lot in pocket carry. I have had my CM9 for almost a decade and it has been very good to me. For a pocket carry 9mm its about as...

    High Hopes

    Welcome, from a Central NY member (near Syracuse) but went to college in the Hudson Valley and spent many a summer working at a camp in Esopus. Beautiful region.

    NYC first city to end Qualified Immunity?

    Pro-2A Attorneys recommendations?

    I believe that part of prepping for the worst should include having the name and phone number of a Pro-2A attorney handy should the terrible event occur that one would have to defend themselves and/or their loved ones from grave and bodily harm using deadly force. I hope and pray that I would...

    Texas church shooting live stream

    According to the video the first victim, who tried to draw his gun and got killed, had about 3 seconds from the appearance of the shotgun to killer pulling the trigger. Fishing around for his gun in the small of his back seems to be what took up the most time.

    Help me... 9 mm vs 45 ACP

    Talking about 7 or 10 rounds, in regards how many rounds you can have in the mag when you carry, it's not quite so simple as some portray. The law is still on the books, a cop can still arrest you for (and probably will), a DA can still try to prosecute you (and probably will). Now you may not...

    Leathermans Corner

    I was suprised to see a Leatherman Leap in the photo as I was sure I am one of only a handful of adults that carry and use one. They are marketed as a kids first or beginner Leatherman multitool. The knife blade comes unattached for minors but is easily attached when they are mature enough for...

    Herb Philipsons sorting goods store

    I used to like to get winter gear for my kids there. They did free alterations on pants bought there which my father in law liked ( he's a little in the shorter side.) I also bought ammo there occasionally, mostly self defense hollow points while picking up FMJ at Walmart. But mostly will miss...

    Pistols & handguns VS Bears

    Can we even carry a firearm on parkland here in NY? Nevertheless, I think either .40 cal, the .40S&W or the 10mm, would do fairly well against the four legged creatures that's possible to find in this state: black bears, coyotes, cougars. Honestly, I am more worried about the unleashed...

    NY Nunchuck Law Struck as Unconstitutional.
