    Here's a quote on NYS law. This is not legal advice and you should definitely verify the info before you bring a handgun to NYS.
    A non-resident citizen may possess a rifle or shotgun in New York, as long as it is unloaded while being transported. No person may carry, possess or transport a handgun in or through the state unless he has a valid New York license. New York does not issue licenses to non-residents nor does it recognize licenses issued by other states. (A provision of federal law provides a defense to state or local laws which would prohibit the passage of persons with firearms in interstate travel. If a person is traveling from any place where he may lawfully possess and transport a firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and transport such firearm and the firearm is unloaded and in the trunk. In vehicles without a trunk, the unloaded firearm shall be in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console. Necessary stops, e.g., gasoline and rest, seem permissible.) A member or coach of an accredited college or university target pistol team may transport a handgun into or through New York to participate in a collegiate, Olympic or target pistol shooting competition provided that the handgun is unloaded and carried in a locked carrying case and the ammunition is carried in a separate locked container. An alien may possess a rifle or shotgun for use while hunting provided he has a valid New York hunting license. "If such (handgun) license is issued to an alien, or to a person not a citizen of and usually a resident in the state, the licensing officer shall state in the license the particular reason for the issuance and the names of the persons certifying to the good character of the applicant." Non-resident target shooters may enter or pass through New York State with handguns for the purposes of any NRA approved competition if the competitor has in his possession a copy of the match program, proof of entry and a pistol license from his state of residence. The handgun must be unloaded and transported in a locked opaque container.

    Scott you hit the nail on the head.You may only transport a handgun through NYS if you are competing in a NRA approved shoot.I shoot IDPA and the matches here in this State are listed as NRA approved so non residents can compete.If I were going camping in Adirondacks I would buy myself a Ruger Ranch Rifle(nice short and packs nice).

    I appreciate your common sense approach on out of staters with permits, though I'm sure they do even more!

    My apologies. I missed the word "long" in your post.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Thanks for all the replies. I'm done thinking about the carry issue into NY.

    Now I don't (heart) NY!

    Well, I guess Messrs. .45 and 9mm collect dust for the duration...

    I was born in Manhattan. Doen't that make me a citizen of your country???
    $40 and hour and a bottle of Jack should do it.

    Just kidding. Have a safe trip.

    Anyone one want to set up a weekly match with no entry fees?
