    I stumbled into this forum by chance and realized it's like just what I need.

    I moved not too long ago to a suburban upstate NY location, and the climate for any type of shooting sports here is awful. Emperor Cuomo put a death grip on shooting sports with the so-called "Safe Act" that he rammed through the spineless legislature. Since then, every local gun club has a two-year waiting list, so just joining a club to have somewhere to shoot is a major big deal. The gun clubs are the only places that have archery facilities, so the same roadblock applies to finding a recreational archery venue.

    There's a major railroad line a couple miles from me so that gives me an unlimited supply of ideal, very private spots to do some slingshot target-shooting. Thankfully, I don't (yet) have to register or get a permit for a slingshot in NY State (I think). So--it looks like I'm going to be a slingshot target-shooter.

    I just started my research, but I'm already in love with the bronze Moorhammer. I know it's not a beginner slingshot but when I fall in love like this, I can't help myself.

    And so it starts...

    Hello, welcome! Yes, the gun laws are becoming terrible. And I know your pain, California is pretty bad too.
    However, this doesn't touch our slingshots, thankfully!
    I hope that you enjoy the forum, great friendly people around here and a wealth of slingshot knowledge!

    You know you got screwed when someone from California says "man your weapons laws are draconian". Btw, man your weapon laws are draconian;). Welcome to the forum. If target shooting you may like a side shooter such as a pocket predator more than the howitzer as its mainly for hammer grip style instinctive shooting.
