This is my first post here, so please excuse if I missed protocol.
I recently bought my first gun in NY, then bought a second I have experience shooting, but it's been a few years, and NY laws are a bit different from the ones in Texas that I was familiar with 20 years ago. Basically, Texas law said I couldn't shoot anyone without a good reason. NY says I can only fire my weapon in specific locations, can only put 7 bullets in my clip, and best not look to the west while holding my gun...
I'm hoping to find a group of like minded individuals to shoot with and talk about guns and local gun laws/restrictions. I'm not licensed to carry/own a pistol, yet. I'd love to learn the ins and outs of acquiring a concealed carry license in NYS (I know NYC will never allow it).
To expand a little on NYS clip size restrictions;
I like to follow the law, I see no benefit in giving the authorities a reason to take my guns away. In an attempt to stay legal, I went into my local sporting goods store asking for a new law compliant 7 round clip for my Saiga .223. I was told that not only is there currently no such thing as a 7 round clip, but nobody was going to make them, either. I asked about the law, and was told that I can continue to use my 10 round clip(s), just don't load more than 7 rounds. Am I the only one that finds this beyond ridiculous?
