New York is one of the most beautiful states and blessed with many natural wonders. Among the water wonders are: the Atlantic Ocean, Long Island Sound, the Hudson River, the St. Lawrence and Thousand Islands, 2 Great Lakes (Ontario and Erie), the Finger Lakes, thousands of other lakes and ponds (2 of the largest and most beautful are Lake Champlain and Lake George), thousands of rivers, streams, and ponds, and Niagara Falls of course. We have several mountain ranges and two huge forest preserves (the Adirondacks and Catskills). We have some of the best hunting and fishing around.
Unfortunately, we also have terribly high taxes (the highest-taxing state was New York, with a 12.6 percent state and local tax rate),
a poor business climate, a very corrupt state government, and oppressive gun laws.
As a matter of fact, Guns and Ammo magazine rated NY as 50th in their "best states for gun owners" article.
It's a lousey place for retirees, has among the highest gas prices and more people leave NY than any other.
Upstaters have little voice in government due to the fact that both state houses are based on population.
Every upstater/sportsman needs to be registered and vote everytime if we are ever to have a chance at better representation!

This is the real NRA course, given by NRA certified instructors.
Ladies are welcome and it's a good idea for both spouses to have a license.
Still only $40. Do not hesitate as classes fill up quickly.
