    Hi,

    I will be visiting NY - Manhathan - by end of April and I was wondering what are the possibilities to go with my son (17yrs) and daugther (15yrs) to a shooting range .
    I was a couple of times in Miami and had no problem there but I know the NY state regulations are much different then the FL.
    I am a Belgian citizen / resident. Is it the same as in Ohio (quasi impossible) or is there a chance ? I don't mind taking a car or a train and go to NJ if it is not too far .
    Any ideas ?

    And I could also use a good adress to buy shooting related items in the area.

    No chance of shooting a pistol in NY without a NY permit, but rifle and shotgun shooting is permitted. In Manhattan, I would start here:

    http://www.westsidepistolrange.com/

    That's the only range in the area I know where you can rent. Jersey is also a possibility, but I can't help you there.

    Thank you for your info.
    I tried to get on their site but my computer can not connect .
    Do you have an address and eventualy a phone number so I can call them while in NY ?

    Thanks in advance.

    What does your CT Permit say?
    Hi Charly,
    Take the train to Connecticut (~ 1 hour from NYC), and avoid driving around NYC (not fun!).

    This shop in Norwalk has an indoor range and rents guns. :)

    Shooting Sports/Scott Moss Gun and Tackle,
    4 New Canaan Ave.,
    Norwalk, CT 06851.
    Phone: 203-847-2767
    Facilities include: Indoor Pistol (50, 75 Ft)
    Range Access: Public

    Depending on my schedule, I could meet you and your children at the train station and take you to the range for some fun. :)

    Very competent, friendly range staff. Easy to reach via subway. And, no I am neither an owner nor an employee of the range. :)
