    Greetings all. New member here from the increasingly oppressed New York State (upstate, not NYC). Been into 1911’s for a few years now and the more I mess with them the more I enjoy messing with them. This place looks like a great knowledge resource. I’m sure I’ll have questions and I’ll be glad to share my experiences.

    Welcome Don! I am a escapee from Upstate NY, Rochester/Greece/Webster to exact. I move to Tennessee and have loved it for being so "gun friendly".

    Anyways, welcome and enjoy your stay! There a lot of great people, knowledge, stories and gear around here.

    Welcome from Western NC. A gun friendly state so far,

    Back in 1975 I packed up all my stuff, Guns and all & traveled to my Wife's family farm south of Buffalo. First thing I did was placed a call to the Police & asked what I needed to do about my guns. Of course they asked me for my name, & when I pushed they said to bring them all in.
    Turn them in & 1 by1 they would see if they would return them to me in due time. I asked my Brother in law & he said you just can kiss them all goodbye, they the powers that be, would keep them. How long I asked? Well until you are born in NY state, go to school here & find more then 1 big muckity muck to sign for you. Just never in your case :bawl:.

    Needless to say living in NY was not in my future, so back to OH I went until we moved to NC our forever home.
    So how bad is it in NY today?

    Upstate NY is NOT New York City.
    I have an old buddy up there that has had his concealed carry license for 30 years or so. He does not carry often, not really a 'gun guy', but when he does it's an old 'parts gun 45acp 1911',
    that I enhanced about 36 years ago!
    I think New York State has some silly law about magazine capacity even with handguns.
    I believe 8rds in a 1911 is lawful.

    Also Western NY State is not Upstate NY. Although some think everything outside NY City is Upstate NY LOL. NY City makes law for all of NY state. Must be why my In laws would like to see NY City fall into the ocean LMAO. I just visit, would never live in Socialist NY State.
