Hey guys, i have recently gotten into AR's and since then have 3 setups, now its time for a beowulf...but i have some questions on the legal stuff. Since i live in "good old" New York, there are many bans and regulations on everything. So I was wondering if New York(long Island) has any bans or stuff like that on the .50 beowulf. And if it is ok to shoot it, do most ranges(EX: Calverton) let you shoot it at there facilities.
Sorry if these questions may seem ridicilous, but im not up on the legal BS(besides post/pre ban stuff)

There is currently a bill before the NYS Senate (A4471) that would ban all weapons .500 cal or larger. It passed the Assembly in May of this year and is in the Codes committee of the Senate. The bill, if voted into law, would require the State to buy back any prohibited weapon. The manner in which it is written does not appear to exempt shotguns (just muzzleloaders). It is written as if to ban .50 BMG because of it's "dangerous nature" but is really an attempt to ban a whole lotta stuff (.500 S&W revolvers, .50 Beowulf, .50 Alaskan, .505 Gibbs and so on as well as shotguns). If it passed I think that NYS would go bankrupt buying back expensive weapons. I love my Beowulf, but I am watching this closely. John
