    I was planning a trip to a trap range in my state followed by doing a favor for my daughter.

    Daughter lives in New York City and I don't live in New York.

    Could have been real ugly.

    Anyone know the penalty for an out of state resident bringing a side by side trap gun into New York City?

    Probably just an all expenses paid trip to Rikers Island for a couple hundred weeks. Sounds nice, right?

    I thought long guns were legal in New York without any sort of license? Is it NYC that a non resident can only have a long gun there for like 24 or 48 hours max??? I had heard it was something wierd...that even NYC folks have to get some sort of long gun license when they move there. I guess you could get a hotel in a NYC suburb to keep the shotgun and ride into NYC proper on a train or drive in.

    The federal Gunowners Protection Act of 1986 might have covered you. It covers firearms in vehicles while in transit. It you were not planning to "stay" in NYC (don't know the time limit), you probably would have been exempted from local regs.

    I am beginning to think that most THR members stop and offer their vehicles and persons up for police inspection daily.

    If you had took your trap gun through NYS the penalty would be the same as taking a 4 foot 2"x4" board or a flamethrower through, zero. If you had taken a machine-gun, short-barrel-rifle, hand grenade or pointy stick through, the penalty would have been nothing.

    Now, if you got shooty (or burny/stabby/bonky) in public with one of those things, you would obviously draw attention to yourself and actual penalties might ensue, but losing sleep over laws prohibiting casual possession is getting about as old as the perpetual caliber debates and "will my clip's springs ware out or loose tenshen if I leave clips filed overnite?" threads. Act like a citizen and you don't get searched too often. If you DO get searched, rest assured, many police can't tell if someone being detained is in posession of handguns:

    Article - Scumbag pulls gun while detained in police car, starts firing
    http://www.livevideo.com/video/769545818F274055AE94F7BF64940D3C/why-you-frisk-a-suspect.aspx
    Video - Detained suspect produces handgun and kills self while in custody (possible NSFW language from incompetent police, graphic suicide)

    I rather doubt they will be able to spot a cased shotgun as you drive by.

    As far as the impending "you didn't have to read my silly thread" comment, perhaps if you had used a descriptive title on it I wouldn't have ... I read because I thought there might have been a safety issue or a firearm almost damaged, not an accidental moving across an invisible boundary of an inanimateness object.

    Very tricky.

    Minivan has over 100,000 miles (breakdown possible)

    Police officers peek through the windows when you cross some of the NYC bridges and I will be driving a minivan with no trunk.

    NYC drivers are dreadful (accident always a possibility)

    Will probably have to double park while doing errand.

    All these things make me very happy I remembered.
