    My trigger finger is starting to itch and I won't be able to purchase a handgun or rifle for another 12 months (plus the 4-6 months it takes to be approved for a permit). I've read packing.org and a few other gun law sites several times and know the handgun/knife/baton/knuckles laws like the palm of my hand but I haven't been able to find anything on CrossBows. Are they even legal to own/purchase here? I need to shoot something.. :wtc:

    I'm thinking NO.. pepper spray, tazers, stun guns are all illegal in NYC I'm pretty sure crossbows would be a :nono: too

    This is the only thing I could find on any type of "bow"

    This one just basically says that non-US citizens are exempt from 'criminal' possesion/use/sale/purchase laws as long as they're hunting with a license.

    Other than that there's no mention of bows at all in Article 265 (firearms and other dangerous weapons).

    I tried doing a search for cross bow laws in NYC but only crap that came up was there illegal for hunting in the state.
