Once again, this year, we’ll be celebrating Firearms Appreciation Month, September 2012! Another year in a row, we’re the #1 firearms blog/community website in NY, so we’re going to celebrate and promote firearms appreciation and awareness. We are going to be posting some great topics throughout the month, and even have some guest bloggers and articles!
Many of our sponsors and partners will be offering special discounts to members on this site during the month! I will be adding the specials to this post as they let me know what the specials might be! We’ll also be doing some great karma giveaways on here and on facebook so keep an eye out!
Also, we’ll again be making up a T-Shirt for FAM but this time we’re going to be offering an amazing twofor special with the brand new NYFirearms shirts that are scheduled to release that month also. Once I have the sponsors and the design finalized up, I’ll post it in here! Please post up if you’re interested so I can get an idea of how many to get!
Thanks again for being part of such a great community of like-minded enthusiasts! We’re now just over 4 years old with 5000+ members! Nice job!

As many of you know, we, as in NYFirearms.com, as well as myself, personally, have supported NYSRPA (New York State Rifle & Pistol Association) for quite some time now. We’ve held raffles, advertised in their newsletter, and generally sent as many people towards them as we can. We truly believe in their organization.
I personally have trained with, and had the great pleasure to call my friend, Joe DeBergalis. He is currently running for re-election to the NRA Board of Directors. Many of you already know what a great part of the firearms industry Joe is and how much he has done to protect our 2A rights. He works tirelessly on the NRA Board now, is vice president of NYSRPA, Chair of the NRA Education & Training Committee, Chair of the AR15.COM/Rockcastle Shooting Complex ProAM, and part of many other 2A organizations.
We absolutely need more people like Joe working for our rights, and I will be voting for Joe on the NRA Board again, and you should too. If you do not know who Joe is or would like to read more about what he has done or is doing, and want more information on how to vote, visit his website at Joe DeBergalis for NRA Board 2012.
Now if we could only get Joe to write some articles for us on here! 🙂
Stay tuned for SHOT Show 2012 coverage starting tonight. We’ll be posting up all the pics and video from yesterday’s SHOT Show Media Day at the Range! For now, follow our twitter feed at @nyfirearms! We’ll be tweeting pics all day and all week long! Then each night we’ll be posting up a full day’s post (hopefully)!
NEShooters has just announced their 2012 Summit. This year they will again have some of the best trainers and instructors in the industry. If you missed this last year, then now is your chance to plan early for it! What’s even better is that NYFirearms is an official sponsor of the event for 2012. What does that mean for you? It means that our members get $30 off the registration fee! We will also be there covering the event and we may even plan to do something special for members who attend! The event will be held on April 20,21 and 22 at the Pelham Fish & Game Club, Pelham, NH.
This year’s attendee’s include: Southnarc, Rob Pincus, Michael Janich, Claude Werner, Paul Gomez, Chris Fry, William Aprill, Wes Doss, Kelly Venden, Marty Hayes, and Bill Lewitt. The cost to attend Summit 2012 is $300 normally, but NYFirearms members will be able to attend for $270. This price is actually VERY reasonable for the myriad of instruction and for two full days!
You can sign up at www.neshooters.com, or by calling 603-673-6105. If you have any questions you can direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Hope to see some of you guys there!
