Default Tri-state Gun Thread

I went to a couple of game/sportsman dinners as I usually do the week before Superbowl. Anyway, on Saturday night I was at the Sportsman's dinner held at Pawling Fire Dept and saw an '08-'09 Spec.B in the lot. That gave me the idea to start a local thread for gun enthusiasts in our community.

Also, this could be a good chat for any of you that hunt or go shooting in the tri-state area. I'd be interested in going shooting with other Subaru driving, gun fanatics.

This is my setup for trap shooting. I love this gun. It's actually my father's and I've always liked it ever since I was a kid.

Nice beretta! I got a beretta ugb25 excel, a browning bt-99, a ruger red label stainless, and a few others. I don't shoot the others though, I end up shoot trap mostly especially during winter league. Nice topic indeed!

We got to get a shooting day together once it get's a little warmer out. Donzo I think your close to me we have plenty of options. I go to the range in Peekskill NY and also there is another good one up in Milbrook NY that is really cheap. If we ever wanted to get the NJ people together too there is Thunder Mountain over in Tuxedo NY near the 287 split. I never have anyone to go with so I am always down to go.

You guys can recommend shops/ranges/etc, but no promoting of the businesses. It's a fine line, but don't cross it.

And no sales of guns or gun parts.

Just be careful when crossing state lines with a pistol. If you don't have a permit for the state you're traveling to/through, you're committing a felony.

Another member here is an NRA instructor and is going to give the pistol class for Utah and CT to a bunch of us if any of you are interested. Having a license for Utah allows you to carry in a ton of other states.

I've heard stories about people from other states coming here and getting arrested for the same reason.

Anyone make it to the gun show at the Poughkeepsie Civic Center this weekend? I had plans to go, but they fell through.

Not necessarily through. If you can legally possess the firearm in both origin and destination states then you are protected by FOPA to transport through an intermediate state (provided it is locked in the rear compartment, unloaded, etc.). I'm not saying that you won't get arrested and have to fight to get your firearm back from evidence (NYC).

Also in most states it is not a felony to possess an unloaded firearm on your person -- even in CA it is a misdemeanor. In NJ anything to do with firearms is a felony and even to transport your firearms to the range you are operating in a very narrow exclusion to the law.

This is key. And Arizona licenses are valid in 75% of US states.

AZ non-resident CWP allows you to carry in 64% of US states, to carry in 75%+ of states you will need many permits (see my post in this thread on which states you can get non-resident CCW for if you have the time, money and inclination).

AZ gives you the same states as Utah non-resident, then you add NV, NM and KS, you lose WA and MN.

Both are 5 year permits, require fingerprint cards, etc. UT application costs $51, AZ costs $60. UT requires a special training class which typically costs $200 inclusive of application fees, photos, prints, etc. AZ requires proof of firearms competency which is typically $1-200 (NRA Basic) depending on length and location (although military experience can be substituted here). Add the cost of paying your PD doing your fingerprint cards and the UT permit is the better value.

UT permit is also more reassuring (to me at least) in distant states when dealing with local police as the permit has your picture on it.

Also to address what you quoted, you do not need a permit in a state you are traveling through -- only from and to. You are protected by FOPA in transit. And in most states possessing and even carrying a firearm without valid permit is not a felony, more likely a misdemeanor. Only in NJ is any firearm infraction considered a felony. NJ laws are written in a way that makes anything related to firearms illegal with narrow exceptions.

Im in the process of getting my firearms id for NJ and i tend to go shooting with my cousin in WV. I called Maryland State Police and West Virginia State police and both told me the same thing for transporting a pistol. You dont need any permits. Just make sure the gun is locked up separate from the ammo (which is also locked up) and stored in your trunk (or other compartment not reachable b the driver). Its a federal law and accepted for most states.

Sounds good. To expand on what I said above, I recommend you spend a hundred or two bucks on a Utah or Florida CCW permit which last 5 and 7 years, respectively. It's nice to carry concealed (once you're trained on usage and retention) and it also gives LEO another reason to believe your story if stopped during interstate transport.

Where do you shoot trap in the winter? A buddy of mine got me shooting trap this summer and the range we go to closes for winter. We usually went shooting Wed. nights at Whortekill Rod & Gun in Hopewell Junction/Fishkill. Before that, I haven't gone trap shooting in like 14 years! Fun and cheap. It's $5 for a lane and $6 for a box of shells of you don't bring your own ammo.

I can't wait for my Spike's AR to finally be done!
I shoot out at Brookhaven on Long Island. A few places out here to shoot, people constantly trying to close them down though. It gets quite annoying

Blue mountain is a good spot over in Cortland, Ny... you can spend the majority of the day there... archery, small bore ranges, large bore, skeet and trap. It's a public park and cheap, but you must have your own guns/bow... no loaners, unlike Thunder Mountain in Nj.

Yup, that's right by me. A bunch of my friends go there but I've never been. I've recently starting gaining more interest in firearms so I'm sure I'll be going there.
