    Wayne Morris, ATA Eastern Zone Vice President and Brian Whalen, New York State ATA Delegate asked me to put the following thread on this web page dealing with the New York State Safe Act and how it effects the 2013 Empire Grand American.

    There has been much concern expressed about out-of-state trapshooters traveling to Cicero, New York to attend the 2013 Empire Grand American and the ramifications of the Safe Act Law that was passed in January.

    Please be aware that the Safe Act will not effect anyone coming to New York State with shotguns to shoot the Empire Grand American and also bringing your own ammunition.

    The only firearms that would not be allowed are "assault rifles" (i.e. AR-15's and AK-47's). Shooters should not have any problems with normal long guns. As always, you would have to have a valid New York State Pistol Permit and a pistol registered to you to bring a handgun into New York State.

    Ammunition Availability. Everyone is aware of the current shortages in shotgun ammunition. While we will do our very best to have popular brands of ammunition available, we cannot guarantee any quanity. Local retailers are currently rationing sales of ammunition as well. Shooters should be aware of this and plan accordingly. Due to these shortages, any price gouging of ammunition sales on the grounds will not be tolerated. Complaints will be handled swiftly by shoot management. Watch the websites for any additional information.

    We highly recommend that shooters, to be safe, bring their own ammunition with them so they will be certain to be able to shoot.

    We will do our very best to provide an excellent shoot. We please ask everyone to attend.

    Dave Cichelli, New York State Alternate Delegate

    Dave,

    Good communication. Sorry we won't be back early enough to attend. See you at the State shoot.

    Good luck, Dave in SC (Like Ex-Jet Boat, I am now also a NON-Resident of NY)
