Another year down! June, 2015, marks our 7th year in existence! I’d like to personally thank all of our readers, forum members and supporters for all that you’ve done to make this the best community for NY Gun Owners out there! We have a lot of great stuff in store for 2015 and we hope to keep growing at the pace we are to make things bigger and better each year for y’all!
Also, a big thank you to all of my admins and mods, especially Jeff, for helping out so much over the last 7 years. I really do appreciate it!
We are going to try and keep updating the blog with pertinent news and important articles for us here in NY, as well as some upcoming training classes, events, and even reviews on new products.
Last, but not least, we WILL be bringing back the Shooting Range Database this year to add to our blog section, giving you a great resource to find a shooting range in your area!
Have an idea for something new for the community on here? Share it in the comments below!
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!

My good friend and industry Leader, Mark Craighead passed away today. Mark owned & operated Crossbreed Holsters with his family and friends. I received the news today from. the family and they asked me to pass on their thanks for the thoughts of the firearms community and their assurance that things would continue as expected at Crossbreed. We have lost a great asset today.watch full Spy film
Mark quickly became a leader in the industry as his incredibly innovative Crossbreed Holster design and company quickly become respected for quality and function. He and I worked together on many projects over the last few years and have had the pleasure of hearing from many of his customers in my courses who greatly appreciate his efforts and his company’s efforts to meet their needs. Mark would often ask me what people were saying about the products and how they held up in class and he was always very proud to hear the great reports. He was also very eager to find ways to better serve his customers, the firearms community and the industry as a whole.
Approximately 3 weeks ago, Mark had a heart attack after a successful outpatient surgical procedure and had a very bad few days. We all believed that he had come through it and was on the road to full recovery. Earlier today, he had another massive heart attack and we lost him.
Outside of work, which he very much enjoyed, Mark was both a dedicated family man and a bit of an adventurer. One of his biggest hobbies was motor sports. He had some very impressive vehicles that he enjoyed driving/riding when time allowed. He even ran his beloved Lingenfelter Cadillac CTS-V in the Cannonball Run last year and had planned to try the Vegas to Reno Desert Race in 2013.
One thing that truly stood out about Mark was his commitment to friends and family. As Crossbreed Holsters grew, he continued to bring more and more of both into the operations to share in his success and in fulfilling his commitment to excellence. I have yet to meet anyone in the industry who had a bad word to speak of him and doubt sincerely that I ever will.
Rest In Peace, Brother.
