Greetings fellow NYer. I am from Broome county. You will find more information here than you ever could imagine. Not sure if you have a garand addiction yet like the rest of us. Nice to meet you.

Good to have you here kilgarvan.
Are you from the part of New York that has trees and cows, (commonly referred to as Up-State NY)
or the part that has few trees and hunters that think black & white cows are actually deer (commonly referred to as New Yorkers)?
I am a 18 year resident and Arizona transplant from Broome County. My wife of 57 years and I raised 4 sons and for 40 years we lived one mile from Edwin A. Link Field, currently known as Broome County Regional Airport.

Question for St.John : - Where in Broome county do you live?

VMFn542bob, Hello to you, I am originally from Chenango Forks, but currently live in Whitney Point. You lived pretty close to where my wife grew up. Airport Road in the Johnson City school district. Nice chatting with you.

Thanks for the welcome comments.

Originally from the Bronx "few trees and hunters". Now I live in the Hudson valley "trees and cows"! I very much enjoy New York City and just spent last weekend there. But I'm truly relaxed and comfortable at home in the country. I'm a hybrid I guess!!

Thanks again. I'm really trying to decide on my first purchase on firearms discussed here. I have some money set aside and looking into a WW2 vintage Garand or a WW1 vintage 1903. Didn't want to "just buy" one and get something "wrong". Joined the forum to learn before I purchase.

Thanks again
