Throwing Lead is a resource for shooters in the NYC area. Here you will find information on New York City gun laws, obtaining a firearm permit, getting involved in recreational shooting, as well as proper gun safety and maintenance.

The resources here are provided “as is.” I am not necessarily an expert in all things related to firearms, nor do I offer any legal advice. This site is simply a repository for the materials I found interesting or useful as I learned to shoot. Most of the materials here have been culled from other sources, and some have been reproduced without the original author’s permission. In some instances, the original author couldn’t even be ascertained (such is the nature of the web).

Please feel free to contact me with questions, comments, suggestions, corrections, rebukes, or just a friendly “hello,” by emailing me here.
