Found this forum from a link on the Dutchess County Pistol Association website. The club is located in Wappingers Falls, NY.
We may have more than our fair share of crummy politicians in this state, but we also have plenty of 2nd Amendment loving folks, too. I've had my pistol permit for quite a few years, but haven't thought much about carrying until recently. This looks like a good place to get some ideas. Have a good one and please remember there's much more to New York, than just NYC !
