Most ranges have firearms that you can rent.... once you get used to it, it is a lot of fun!

ATP has over 100 guns you can rent,,,but you have to buy there ammo. The gun rental is only 5.00 dollars.

Lets say you rent a .45cal Glock and buy a box of ammo. You shoot the gun 10 times and decide you dont like it. You can take the gun back to the counter and swap it out for a .45cal revolver, at no extra cost...........(And shoot the rest of the .45cal ammo)

Wow! That's a great deal! And you don't need a handgun license? NY sucks so bad!

I only had one couple come to my Open House today. This is so depressing. I wish I could afford to give our house to my kids and just move down there.

Yes, it'll be. We decided in 08 that we wanted to live here. Nearly 4 years later we've arrived, and still have to go back for weeks at a time. At least till summers end. Becky was so happy today as she set her house up she began to cry. Tomorrow she has to leave for several weeks for work. It's not always an easy road.

Little?? I would be scared of that one
Rick you mean no license needed if renting and using the range, right? I assume after gun purchase, a handgun lic is necessary...? What about a permit to carry a concealed weapon??

Thanks, those are the last questions for a while.
