    Trade value?

    So I bought my first m&p fs 9mm in November, with ammo being scarce I only managed to get about 250 rounds through it. I have my ccw appointment coming up in December and I'm concerned about the conceal-ability of the full size frame. I'd like to trade it for a .40c but am concerned about the trade value and out of pocket costs. Any thoughts on what I would get for it? It's completely stock, x2 10 round magazines, paid approx $500.

    Welcome to the Forum! Glad you joined.

    Perhaps $300-$350.

    I'd be for putting some study in methods and holsters to effectively conceal the M&P 9mm. Not a thing wrong with having a pistol that size on hand for all-around defensive use.

    this will at least give you a ballpark. I would sell the gun outright if you can. You take a real hit trading guns in on another gun.

    This here ^^^^^

    If sale is required to get something else, in my area they run 450 ish for a used gun in umblemished condition. If you want it sold ASAP, ask $450, and take the first $420 bucks that comes your way. If you want to hold for $450, you will sell it eventually but may take a little while. Buyers are not snapping things up like crazy anymore. I personally would not go any lower than 400, and that would take some serious haggling at that unless i needed to sell for a new toy

    I wouldn't trade my full-sized M&P carry gun for anything. With the right holster (and I have the right holster), it vanishes under a t-shirt. This holster was specifically designed to comfortably and effectively hide and secure a full-sized double-stack semi while providing quick access: Ohio Special IWB - MidWorld Holster.

    The question that first comes to mind is with NY 7 round magazine limit, can you legally sell it with 10 round magazines?

    I'm in putnam county, bordering Westchester and Fairfield counties... And no, not really interested in a glock. Got my eye on a m&p .40c. Anyone know the procedure for transfer of pistol on a private sale?

    IMHO, you probably wouldn't gain a HUGE amount in concealability with the compact, so it may not be worth taking the hit. They're both IWB guns, and the longer barrel gives the bullet a bit more boost. Might be all you need is a good holster to help the grip hug your body.

    And move someplace where you can use 17-round magazines. I have some ten-round 9mm mags from the ban days - ticks me off every time I look at them.

    private sales of handguns have to be conducted through a FFL holder, and all handgun sales laws must be followed, meaning that it must be on your permit before you can take possession, meaning you have to have your permit amended, meaning it is a huge PITA......thats why i left newyork and have never looked back. Now the only thing I need to by a gun is a DL and some cash. Check with your permit licensing authority or a local GS as laws may have changed, but if they have I doubt it will be in your favor.

    Can you do a private sale in New York State? NRA website is saying you have to have a permit to purchase a handgun. Is this true?

    NRA-ILA | New York

    A synopsis of New York state laws on purchase, possession and carrying of firearms.

    PURCHASE
    No permit is required for the purchase of a rifle or shotgun (except in New York City). A license to carry or posses a pistol or revolver is required to purchase a handgun. (See HANDGUNS- POSSESSION and CARRY) Elsewhere than the City of New York, a person licensed to carry or possess a pistol or revolver may apply at any time to the licensing officer in the county of their residence for amendment of his or her license to include one or more such handguns or to remove a handgun held under the license. READ ALL

    POSSESSION—RIFLES AND SHOTGUNS
    There is no state license requirement for the possession of a rifle or shotgun, so long as the rifle has barrel(s) at least 16 inches in length and the shotgun has barrel(s) at least 18 inches in length. READ ALL

    POSSESSION—HANDGUNS
    A license is needed to possess a handgun. Application is made to the licensing officer of the city or county where the applicant resides, is principally employed, or where his principal place of business as a merchant or storekeeper is located. An alien may obtain a pistol license if he or she meets these requirements. READ ALL

    CARRY
    A license to possess a handgun serves also as a license to carry unless restricted. A license to carry or possess a pistol or revolver, not otherwise limited as to place or time of possession, shall be effective throughout the state, except that the license shall not be valid within the city of New York unless the police commissioner of that city issues a special permit granting validity. READ ALL

    NON-RESIDENTS
    It is unlawful for any person to carry, possess or transport a handgun in or through the state unless he has a valid New York license. READ ALL

    On January 15, 2013, Governor Cuomo seized your gun rights overnight! S.2230 was signed into law only 24 hours after it was introduced. The law went into effect immediately upon signature.
