Done a search here, limited info. Looked for NY state general laws but the official NY website is obtuse with little info on actual laws. NY state police website only has registration & licensing info. I know enough not to bring a handgun. Then there's the "Safe Act" so no AR or anything over 7 rounds. That leaves my bolt action (Howa 1500) or my Benelli Super Nova (pistol grip). I know either one needs to be cased, unloaded & ammo separate. Does the pistol grip on the shotgun make it an "assault weapon"? I'd rather have that than the bolt gun. any ammo restrictions on 00buck / slugs ? Intent is casual plinking on private land & self defense. Apparently even my pepper spray is unlawful in NY (3/4 oz limit).
