I have moved a lot due to the military and every local PD I have called about gun laws/regs in the area referred me to their state police. Getting legal advice from people you don't know on the internet is definitely the wrong way to go about it. You are pretty young in your life it would really suck to catch a felony and lose your right to own/operate firearms.
Good advice, except that sometimes local jurisdictions have different laws. Knowing state and local laws is a key part of firearms ownership.
You're right, I always call the local guys first. And the dude contacted the local guys and the local cop said he doesn't know the laws. It's just my bad experiences coming out. Getting legal gun advice from the local guys is like trying to herd cats.
