I'm just starting out on kit and training. But one of the problems I've hit so far is Nys AR laws. I found some assault rifles i'd like to get but I have no clue how to get around the ban. Any one else have this problem and if so how did you get around it?

Also if y'all could post your the AS you feels is the best. ( based on durabily, accuracy, power, commonality of parts etc

What rifle do you want that makes you think you need to get around the law? If it is semi-auto, magazine fed, with a compensator and fixed stock you're probably o.k. You will need to live without a bayonet lug, however. If you've a particular rifle in mind, post it here and it can be discussed.

You need to move cuz that is a blue state and it's not going to change. If you want a different lifestyle, make it so. I sacrifice a great deal to stay where I am because much of the lower 48 is repulsive to me: gun laws, toll roads, traffic, crime, 90 degree heat, costs of living, the smell of Southern Cali is awful. I miss some things but I have life licked up here.

Let me tell you what real life is like.

Just this week, in addition to working 50 hours and commuting 12 hours, I shot a practice match at the indoor range where I work as a volunteer; made a bunch of calls and posted flyers all over for our gun show; reloaded for 2 buddies, got my fence up around my garden; shot a few rounds with my AR, AUG, Benelli and my Ruger 22's. I hung my new garage door, cleaned my boat, made some spinners, tied some flies, watched 3 Mariners games on TV. I flew down to Whittier last evening to check my shrimp pots and had nearly a full bucket of prawns to clean for a halibut/shrimp/salmon feast, I saw over a dozen black bears, and then I banged out 11 rainbows last night between 9-1100 PM as the they were slashing the salmon fry and it was "magic hour". This morning I called a friend to tell him where the critters are so he is off to kill something.

The kings are off to an early start but I have stuff to do here and I am still playing with the rainbows for a week or so. It's going to be a good summer of fishin' and shootin'!

I don't know about the rest of the state, but I was told the AR-15 is completely illegal in New York City where I currently reside.

I mentioned this in an earlier thread, but I was recently informed that in the event of any sort of "incident" occurring with a firearm you legally own (Be it a misfire, accidental discharge, theft, etc) then your licenses are suspended and all of your remaining firearms, if any, are confiscated until after an investigation is conducted as to the nature of the incident.

This frightened me enough to say, "That's it, I'm heading to a neighboring state that's much friendlier." Can you imagine having to use your weapon against an assailant in your home only to have it and all of your other weapons taken from you by the police afterwards? For anywhere from one month to several? What if the assailant had a couple of friends who are going to be mighty ticked off that their boy got dropped? If they're hanging around after the fact and they see the police walking off with all your guns, you better believe they'll be back later that week.

Now, keep in mind that I have absolutely nothing against the officers in NYPD. The ones I know are great men who hate these rules as much as the regular citizens. It's the bureaucrats I have a qualm with.

On a side note, I was looking into getting a good rifle for my wife to wield once we move to Pennsylvania. I was showing her the Mini-14 and one of the Bushmaster M4s, both with telescoping stocks to fit both her small frame and my larger frame. She read up on them and wants the M4! Woo! :thumb:

Try living in Canada. You want to talk about gun laws. I love Canada but the gun laws drive me crazy. Up until a few years ago I thought I couldn't even own a handgun. I now legally own a smith&wesson M&P 45 (after a lot of red tape) but I can not legally defend myself, my family, or my home with it. It stays trigger locked in a locked safe and the only place I can bring it to is the range. To transport it there it must be trigger locked and unloaded in a locked case and I must take the most direct route possable. This is the only reason I would like to live in the states (no offence).

We own both Colt and Bushmaster M-4's. Mini-14's both post and preban. Magazines are the issue. You are limited to ten shots in a new magazine, but you can buy pre ban. NYC dominates New York politics. Bloomberg would ban everything if he has a chance. All pistol permits are conceal carry and our issued by a county judge. Finger prints, background check takesas short as two months, longest 12 months. There are some intense red portions in this blue state. It is interesting to look at the county by county voting. If you win the 5 burroughs of NYC and Buffalo city proper you will win any state wide election. If NYC was given to NJ, this state would be similar to Vermont and New Hampshire. Whats our choice? Urban areas are almost always more liberal than their surrounding state and NYC is big

Here's your loophole... move out of NYS.
Set-up or find a temporary residence/address in another state and get a liscence and ID there.
Purchase everything you want and store it there somewhere... ie: friends, relatives, etc.
Go back to NYS if work is there, or if you must.
Better yet do not go back at all.

ARs are banned in NY?
Nope, you can get most "assault weapons" in NY, they just need to be in a modified configuration.. think of the clinton AWB ban.. that is what NY has.

You can get an AR, just it has to be neutered a tiny bit such as no collapsible stock.
