    We live in Pa and, every year, we shoot both of the NY matches as well as many others up and down the East coast.

    Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm of the understanding that if you have a NYS CCW permit you can have only seven rounds in the mag. If your on a gun range than you're good for ten. An you are correct that you can only possess mags that have a ten round limit.

    Do you know what the rules are regarding spectators at WSRC? I'm a new GSSF member and was just wanting to check it out.

    Take guns and ammo (100 rounds per entry plus 100 rounds for do overs just in case). Spend no more than 15 minutes checking it out, I'm serious. You want to play this game. Register and shoot. Be sure to sign up for the first match raffle. You will not regret doing it. Have an armorer look at your Glock. They'll replace worn parts and install upgrades free of charge.

    In NY state you must:
    1)have a copy of your entry's
    2)the match will put out a letter showing the match is a NRA sanction match

    Keep both copy's -if you fly you have 48 hours to enter and exit before you are in violation of their laws.
    Also
    10 round mags only, I would keep everything in the locked case till you arrive at the range.

    email the match director of the match for details

    Good luck
    Mike

    No reason to watch, if you have a Glock go shoot. It really is easy and they will step you through each part of the process. Just tell them you are a first timer, enter the first timer drawing for a gun, get the safety briefing and then watch other people for a little bit and jump in line.

    If you are still unsure, fill out the online entry form, print it out and put it in your bag with your Glock and ammo. Then when you get there if you want to watch for a while you can and then you can go ahead and enter when you feel comfortable.

    It won't take long to see how it all works, and the ROs will keep you on track and help you master the details; just relax, follow their instructions and you will have a great time.

    As I recall, the law was struck down in Western NY but not in Eastern. OK to have 10 rounds at any NRA sanctioned event.

    Just don't get caught carrying OR with ANY ammo in your pistol outside of a range unless you have a NY Pistol Permit.

    Have guns and ammo locked separately in an inaccessible location when you're driving, and keep copies of match announcement and registration form. Leave any mag with greater than 10 round capacity at home.

    YoungAnn (above) won't lead you astray!
