What may be legal in my state may not be legal in yours.

Become familiar with your state laws (and remember that the free legal advice from the internet may not be correct).

Of course, they cannot post anything on the internet that was not true.

Ya everyone says different things. I'm going out of my mind, I live in New York I'm 21, getting into guns and into SASS its really hard because New York takes a year for a pistol permit and I can't get a revolver for at least the next year and its mad!! I found a puma SA revolver for $150 I would get it and weld it or whatever is legal, the problem with non shooting or blank shooting guns is that you can't fan them and that's one of the important things in CAS so If anyone from another state would buy it weld it and ship it to New York (so its legal) I would pay more..... Or if anyone has a revolver that the firing pin is messed up or the cylinder is bot safe for real fire I would weld the, and buy them....

Best advice youll get, is from a 2a attorney in your neck of the woods.

Unfortunately New York is one of the seven or eight rogue countries that don't seem to recognize the US constitution.
When I fixed this gun I was in the radical anti gun country of Hawaii,a place that has gun and property law based on edicts and opinions of the former Queen. At that time in the 90's it passed the state AG and BATF guidelines for an inert gun.
For all I know now it might even be against the law in New York to say the word gun in public,particularly if it is a gun capable of holding more than 12oz's of soda pop.

There should be a web site to call up state gun laws and find out what constitutes a non functional firearm.Most states have a firearms division of the AG's office or state police that can answer your questions.

Two reactions from this thread. First, I feel sorry for the OP and all of the other law abiding would-be gun owners in New York. A full year to get permission to buy a gun? Second, it makes me feel fortunate to live in SC.

To the OP: If you haven't already done so, attend a local SASS match before you start buying things. Also, if you get a replica gun for dry fire practice, don't spend time learning how to fan it. Fanning is against the rules-it's unsafe and it's really hard on the gun. What most cowboy shooters do (except those shooting one handed) is to hold the gun in the strong hand and use the other hand's thumb to cock the hammer.

Check your state laws with great care. If you are convicted of a firearms crime you will be barred from ever owning a handgun. Be very careful of advise regarding decommissioned modern weapons. The firearms receiver is the only registered part of a handgun or long arm.

Thanks for your sorry feelings I plan on moving out of this occupied New York someday and live free!! And about fanning, when I first learned about CAS I couldn't believe they weren't fanning until about a week ago I found out its cock pull chock pull..... That's really impressive the way some of them guys shoot,... btw I legally can still get long guns so the lever action is getting faster! At least

Not sure of New York laws, but you might be able to get an airsoft replica gun.

They make full metal, full functioning guns, even gas blowback operated ones in semiautomatic and revolver. They're awesome! And the little plastic bbs only go about 300fps, you can shoot in your backyard or garage!

A pellet gun would work better, pretty close to a .22 and you don't need a license, (at least in my state, you may in new york)
