At least a year and a half in the making, we finally managed to get an online store attached to this website. We have been planning and researching and planning and researching, and then we did some more planning after some research. Finally, we found a system that is going to work great for us and the way our website is built / maintained.watch Silence film now
Right now there is only 5 products in the store, but we’ll be adding more shirts, and other NYFirearms.com goods for you guys to outfit your lives with! We are going to keep prices extremely reasonable, because we are SUPER appreciative of all of the support we get for this website. We put TONS of man hours and personal funds into making sure this website is the best on the internet for firearms enthusiasts in New York State. We also want to make sure we stay that way!
Head on over to the store: NYFirearms.com Store. Let us know what you think and give us some ideas for products you would like to see in the store! Once again, from myself, and on behalf of all of my fellow administrators and personnel, we thank you for being a part of the best firearms community for NY!
While I’m down here on vacation, I’ve been watching various firearms DVD’s so expect more of these reviews from me! Anyways, I watched this latest one from Personal Defense Network. PDN is one of the premier websites to find personal defense video and training. They offer many DVD installations of various training installments and more. PDN’s managing editor, Rob Pincus, owner of I.C.E. Training, is very well-known in the industry as a professional firearms instructor, author and consultant. PDN has some very talented and nationally known contributors such as Cecil Burch, Mike Janich, Claude Werner, and our own Chris Fry of MDTS.
On this 2011 PDN DVD, we explore Carbine Retention and Combatives as taught by Chris Fry of MDTS Training. Chris is one of our contributors right here on NY Firearms, and nationally know for much of his combatives training content. The content on this DVD is taken directly from his Combative Carbine Skills 3&4 where you get hands-on training of this exact material.
The information on this DVD is great and I recommend it for anyone who train’s fairly often with a carbine platform. It is important, especially for people who are utilizing a carbine platform as their primary home defense firearm. One great benefit of Chris’ approach to training is the focus on defensive tactics from a civilian or citizen standpoint. Another overall comment I can make is that the information is very concise, yet complete, and there are great recaps of information after each chapter.
Additionally, Chris goes over some great information about gear choices and it’s relation to carbine retention and combatives. I think there’s so much focus on picking equipment and arguing on the internet over whats better than what, and it’s refreshing to see suggestions for gear based on a very real situation. As I said above, I would absolutely recommend this DVD to anyone who is into firearms, defense, and carbine practical usage as a whole. I was very impressed with the quality of the video, and I look forward to watching the Combat Focus Shooting one from PDN next!

According to Wikipedia, Information Security means protecting information and information systems from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, perusal, inspection, recording or destruction.
Most people would take that definition on consider that it only relates to big networks, servers, computers and more. Unfortunately, so many people take this for granted, that it is not surprising that there is so much identity theft and fraud in today’s society. Criminals are smarter, so you need to take the proper security measures to ensure that you do not fall victim to information theft.
Typically, information security on the personal level can be split into three separate categories: Confidentiality, Integrity and Authenticity (Traditionally, the CIA triad was considered the core principles, however the A referred to availability).
