    I don't even know if we can enter NY with a gun now. A friend at my club was going to shoot skeet over in Lewiston, he was told to leave his shotgun at home.

    As long as you have the required Federal Paper work you can bring you guns to New York. It still works the same way as it did before the new law. There is always a group of Canadians shooting Sporting clay and Trap at Hamburg, several days a week.

    Cowboy action guns are still legal but almost everyone I know loads their own ammo. Looks like we are we are being shut down on out of state sales on compoments for reloading. This will make it too expensive to shoot if we have to buy locally.

    Friends in neighboring states can assist with component acquisition. Think outside the box.

    I have a specific question that I wanted to post to Contact but it won't accept my Canadian address. I wanted to know if there was any exemption for target pistols with a so called assault weapon feature. I shoot two Walther GSP in .22 and .32 but the magazine attaches in front of the trigger. If someone here could find out for me. I want to attend the State Championships at Boston Valley.

    Thanks

    Looks like WNYPPL and GCL are carrying on for now. No more limited class (Limited 10 only) and open is being run with 10 round magazines.

    I'm not aware of exemptions but maybe if you owned it prior to the ban date you're OK for the next year. Your best bet is to contact your match director.

    No open? GCL is shooting open if people have blocked mags to 10 rounds.

    anything is fair in a gunfight.

    I would much rather run into a thug with a 32acp than a USPSA open shooter.

    Two points: I purchased a .22 pistol at the Albany Show last weekend, and the dealer is holding it. I am trying to purchase an additional mag, and am citing the law's Apr 15 sales deadline and the fact that 10 rounds can be loaded into 10-round mag at an incorporated range or sanctioned event; I hope they'll view it sensibly and sell me an extra mag.

    As for finances, go ahead and get your paper work done, and you may as well schedule a filing date/fingerprinting NOW, because they are booking at least two months out everywhere. I am in Rensselaer County and was scheduled for Mar 12, yesterday, to hand in my application and money order for $124.25. Santa Claus might bring it to you just in time....

    My club will continue to do matches similar to idpa with the 10 round mag limit. There will have to be a little more elegance in course design- more lower round count stages as opposed to the current format where a belt fed would be handy.
    i feel high power rifle will take a big bit as the ar 15 has become the gun for that sport and its light recoil and lower cost compared to match grade m1 and m1a's has a way of appealing more to young and female shooters . I am sure discouraging a number of shooting sports was part

    I see some mention of reloading components - NOTHING in the law addresses components you can continue to buy reloading stuff as in the past unless a company policy stops ny shipments but that would NOT be part of the law

    How many open class shooters actually carry that competition weapon?
