I've managed to get my service pistol....sort of.


(Not actually her, but a good representation)

My father in law had a contact through S&W, and he was entitled to a discount since he'd taken an armorer's course through them. He very generously offered to make the purchase for me, then we'd do a transfer, thus saving me a boat load of money.

The dealer told him that thanks to NY's new gun laws, he wouldn't ship to my father in law, even if he was a LEO (NYPD) First we'd need someone with an FFL to take the purchase, then the guy backed out completely and decided he wasn't shipping to NY at ALL- not with 15 round mags.

He did however, point my father in law to a dealer in Queens who would give him the piece at the discounted rate.

My father in law called the other day, he's got it, picked it up with everything I need. My county told me all I needed to do was procure a 'bill of sale' from him, and the transfer would be done.

.....Except that now that's changed. The new laws state that there needs to be a background check performed by a licensed dealer because its a 'private sale.' So now, I need to contact a dealer, pay them money to do a background check, all to make a transfer of a firearm between family members.

I'm spending a maximum of 3 years working in NY, then its time to GTFO, this is insane.

Not yet. As of April 15th any 10 round magazine after that date of purchase is illegal. So Reb, you got what, 15-16 round magazines or 10? How do you feel about being allowed only to put 7 in it when on patrol? Comfy with that? Now let's take what Dandy Andy thinks, "Youse don't need 15 bullets ta stops a creeminil!", invest in plate carries, spare magazines and practice tac reloads my friend.

15 round, yeah.

Absolutely 0% of the LEOs I've come into contact with since the institution of this pecker-headed law are leading only 7 rounds in their magazines. I don't plan on being the first.

Then I really hope that the DAs are all ready to lose a lot of cases on technicalities. By not limiting themselves to carrying 7 rounds in their magazines, the officers are committing a crime (felony?) in the performance of their duties thereby creating a miscarriage of justice in any arrest or other action they take.

To whit, I can't wait for the first person with enough smarts to point out to a judge that there is a crime being committed by every officer in the court room (most likely including the bailiff) while proceedings are taking place. That alone is enough to get a mistrial.

Just had this very conversation with a LEO and judge the other week down here in MD.

Me too, but since its not a 'department approved' firearm I can't use it in Phase II, and its a little large to carry as a backup.
