They have to verify that they checked it when they ring it up also. Other than that I think the law is you have to be over 18 to buy any ammo in NY.
I see some of you are buying ammo in the same places I do. We need to get together and shoot sometime. I belong to the Kayderrosseros R & Gun Club. I am permitted to bring 2 guest shooters on the range with me.
It was a younger female at the counter in Saratoga and its the younger ones I usually have the problems with,
I believe there is no law against buying hand gun ammo as long as you are 21 or older,18 for long gun ammo.
I know one of the assistant mgrs of the Glenville store but she dosn't cover sporting goods ,and thats the one store I have not had a problem with.
WM has there policies posted for EVERYTHING but HG permits for ammo ,go figure.
I would like to get together and shoot with other members,
I'm a member of Iroquois R&G in Rotterdam and can also bring guests though I also have friends with land where the rules are a little more lax (not saftey)
and we can set up cans and balloons and just have fun.
