I am a new permit holder in new York and wondered how you check the trigger pull in a store before purchase to see how it feels I didn't want to make a fool of myself. But want a pistol I like in every way thanks for help.

Are there ranges close by that rent guns? Try out the models that you are interested in. Trigger pull is only part of the equation, different models of the same caliber can shoot and feel very differently, grip size can also alter the feel and control as well as felt recoil.

Unfortunately, it is illeagal to even touch a pistol that is not on your permit here in NY. Some LGS will allow you to handle the goods before puchasing the pistol, most I have been to will, a few will not. None of the ranges in my area rent handguns. The best advice I can give is to find a friend with what you are interested in buying, and go with them to a range. Most ranges will let it slide when it comes to one member letting another try out a pistol on the range. The best advice I can give is to do what I am doing. Get out of NY while you still can. Move to a freeer state.

I left NY 2 1/2 years ago after 35 years of being "enslaved". I now live where we don't need helmets, seatbelts or pistol permits!

They will not let you touch the handgun unless you show a New York permit. Maybe some will, but most will not.
