    Hello from soon-to-be NYC

    Hello all,

    I'm a young guy, fresh out of law school and moving to NYC next month. Been shooting most of my life. Turns out being a gun owner in the Big Apple is a rather complicated endeavor, so I will be greatly appreciating the insights of any of the older, wiser folk who have gone before :) Great forum, guys!

    +1 NYC is one of the most unfriendly place for gun owners in the country.

    If you do move there consider leaving your guns outside of NYC and not reporting your ownership of the guns.
    the permitting process there is horrible.

    don't even consider ever being able to carry your weapons there and without a permit you won't be able to buy ammo or shoot at the very few ranges there.

    Well, considering that I'm going to be a member of the Bar, illegal gun ownership is probably not a good option ;) I may indeed leave my guns out of NYC, if I can't get a license. If I'm denied a license, I'd be tempted to sue under McDonald v. Chicago... but let's hope it doesn't come to that, eh?

    By the way, to the FL guys: I'm actually coming to NYC from FL. I just spent 2 years living in Naples, and I must say you've got a fantastic state and some lovely gun laws.

    Welcome from Virginia. As far as your guns go.....it could be worse, you could be headed to Chicago!
