    k heres the deal. I wanna go to a local firing range and rent a gun, possibly take some prelim safety classes also. I've searched and found a couple in Manhattan. Is it possible to simply walk in, show ID, rent a gun and get some rounds and go at it? TIA

    :)

    Yes...as long as you are of legal age (18 for rifles and 21 for handguns) you can walk in and tell them what you want to do, sign the waiver, choose a gun, get some ammo and targets, put on your ear and eye protection, go to the range and start shooting.

    At least that's how FL is.

    If you haven't fired a firearm before I suggest you talk to who is ever working and let them know...they will usually walk you out to the range and give you a rundown on what you need to know like how to load and unload, basic gun safety, what to do if you have a misfire, etc...

    Good luck.

    NO.

    not in NYC (or NY in general).

    in New York state you need a pistol permit to even HANDLE a pistol (how gay is that?). so there are no ranges that rent pistols. I dont know of any in teh NYC area that rent rifles either.


    your best bet is going to a range in NJ. THere are plenty that rent out pistols.

    as for gun safety classes, gun safety is pretty easy.

    always check to make sure the gun is unloaded before handling it.

    keep your finger off the trigger until you are pointing at a target that you intend to shoot.

    dont point at anything you dont intend to shoot.

    NYC is one of the safest major cities in the country. Yeah, there is a lot of crime, but not THAT much considering there are more than 8 million people living here..

    I can't remember the name of it, but there used to be a good place on Route 46 east of Garfield (I don't remember if it's in Lodi or Hasbrouck Heights).

    Have you seen the fucking rent in NYC? Blue-collar crooks can't afford to live there!
