Question regarding carrying duty or off duty firearms in NY, NYC. I know you're covered federally, but a couple of us have been having a conversation. Some people say you can't carry a magazine larger then 7 rounds. Does anyone carry into NY or have had any issues with carrying?
This is a great question, I didn't want to give bad info so I called the NYPD directly. The answer I got was 6 rounds total in the gun, in a 10 round magazine. Also if your carrying in NYC be cautious of the locations your going to. If your going to see a Broadway show, many Theaters are wanding or using metal detectors. THEY WILL GIVE 0 Consideration that your on the job. The only way to get in is to secure your weapon at the nearest NYPD precinct. NYC is nuts with this stuff.
Wow I am surprised you were able to get through to them. I've called on two occasions and I got bumped around on the phone and most guys/gals told me just carry as you normally would, just don't shoot anyone. Which really doesn't give much information.
