Well chalk up another one for NYC Hear in NYC you need a purchase order for any handgun you want to buy and they are no longer giving them out for the t/c encore or contender. They are now illegal hear in NYC . do to the fact that the barrels and calibers can be changed . My local shop owner said he heard something to this nature and told me to check it out before i do any ordering. And i am glad i did. For you guys hear in NYC this comes fro m the purchase order dept iin NYPD headquarters at one police plaza. I spoke with the Sgt. in charge and there memo on the encore just came in with in the last two weeks. So no deer shooting for me in Dutchess county i guess i'll still have to hunt them.This is a big let down as i was really into getting the encore pistol. I will be writing alot of letters and sending alot of e-mails and hope many of you do the same. Maybe we'll get lucky and the rule could be changed sometime in the future.
