For $65, a background check and a safety class you can fire a 22lr rifle that is chained to the lane. I'm assuming that does not include the ammo which is probably ridiculously priced too.
Yeah, but if you have a pistol permit you can fire your guns just like a normal shooting range. It's crazy how much red tape they have to go through to even touch a loaded gun there.

$$$ is the only glue that sticks NYC and gun ranges together.

knowing NYC and how anti they are...prolly...and afaik its very hard and expensive to get a NYC pistol permit.
You have no idea.....It can be done though. It's not easy and it's not cheap either. Possesion of rifles is also controlled in the city.

I had to wait over a year for my NYC target pistol permit (do not confuse this with a premises (you can have it loaded at a specific place, like your business) or concealed carry (golden, for special folks, politicos, judges and those connected with them).

Now this was like 25 years ago, but I had to pay about $150 or so for the permit, make like four trips from the dealer to the Puzzle Palace just to get the pistol added to the permit, including the "inspection", AND I had to prove I had a membership at an approved range and never let it lapse.

Get caught with the pistol loaded in NYC anywhere but an approved range back then (pre-Bloomberg) it was a minimum 1 year in prison, mandatory, no sentence reduction or probation.

Now, this was in addition to what I needed to possess a rifle or shotgun, which is a different permit altogether. While the pistol permits were handled by the NYPD Pistol Permit Section, the long guns were handled by the NYC Firearms Control Board (FCB).

God, I praise the day I could finally afford to get the hell out of NYC.
