Long Island Firearms is the premier website for firearm enthusiasts here on the Island. We consist of a community with just under 4000 law abiding gun owners throughout NYC, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Long Island Firearms is 3 years young and has become a fast growing website sensation, with over 200 new members and 2 million hits per month. At that pace the website has been and will continue to be a local success story.
On average a visitor of the website spends 17 minutes on the site which means these visitors are participating actively in all the forum has to offer by reading, responding and engaging in the various topics. The drive for the website is to bring together law abiding firearms owners throughout the Long Island and NYC metro area to learn, meet new friends, enjoy the hobby and discuss various firearm and non-firearm related topics. Many of our members have met through the site and continue their friendships offline through informal weekly or monthly range gatherings and trips. We also hold official Long Island Firearms range gatherings that further illustrates how our community works. Without Long Island Firearms many of our members would never had come together to enjoy this great hobby.
Long Island Firearms is also a place to come even if you are not a firearms enthusiast, we have areas that address a variety of topics such as; fishing, camping, pets, fine cigars, Long Island wine country, Long Island beaches/ 4X4 and CB radio.
The website generates income from its 16 advertisers. There are limited spaces and a current waiting list for a banner spot. Our advertisers consist of a variety of businesses such as gun stores, plumbing, investigations, restaurant, construction supplies and home contractors.
Long Island Firearms is also heavily involved in charity work to benefit all of our local communities here on Long Island as well as in the NYC metro area. We hold blood drives with the NY Blood Center, coat drives with One Warm Coat, a street cleanup through the Brookhaven Town Adopt a Highway program, free firearm safety training clinics and much more.
The creators of Long Island Firearms are always thinking of ways to fill much needed niches here in our area with different websites dedicated to Long Island discussions and topics. Long Island Bids is one of those latest creations where the site is dedicated to safely buying and selling items locally. This website was devised as an alternative to the ineffective national classified and auction sites. Long Island Bids is free to use for buyers and sellers. Sales can be set up as auctions or a straightforward classified sale. Clean out your garage and check out the site, http://www.LongIslandBids.com!
