    I already twindled down my collection once when I moved from MI to Philadelphia...now I just found out I'll be starting my surgery residency in NYC (Animal Medical Center, NY)...but that means that none of my guns are going to be coming with me. Not quite sure what to do with them. Options are: send them home to CA (have to modify the AR-15 first), leave them with a buddy in CT, or sell them (argh). Bringing them is just too impractical, and the new place has NO ROOM for my safe. What would you do?

    That is exactly why I applied for graduate schools only in free states.

    Personally, I wouldn't sell them (unless you need the money.) Who would they be with at "home" and how well do you trust your buddy? That would be the deciding factor in what i did with them.

    if you're going to have to modify your AR to send home to CA, you're going to have to modify it to keep with your buddy in CT. CT still has an AWB, no mag restrictions though. Good thing about leaving with your buddy in CT, is that you're able to take a weekend trip and go shoot them if you want. That's not possible if they're in CA.

    Also dependent on how well you know your friend in CT.

    Gimmie the specs on the AR. I'll make you a deal... I'll pay to store it with me and when you finish school and depending on if you move or not I'll sell it back to you for the same price.

    Friend in CT was one my of groomsmen and was the person who originally got me into firearms. Super responsible, very knowledgeable. I like the idea of being able to visit and shoot only an hour away...

    You should have gotten a place outside of the boroughs. Stupid nyc laws can't touch you.

    of what was posted, I'm pretty sure everything except the AR can come along. No pistols in NYC, and the AR, even if going to CT, but be compliant with our Assault Weapons Ban.
