Most people do not know that Queens County NY was the veritable birthplace of the NRA. The country’s first nationwide shooting contests were held in the Queens section called Creedmor. Though long the site of a state mental hospital, and lately the secure location of the NYPD’s anti terrorist task force, the site’s nimrod history is still seen in the names of boundary streets like Springfield and Winchester Boulevards and Range street and Musket street.
Thanks for the tip. Conrad must be spinning.
A don’t forget the famous 19th Century target gun, the Creedmor rifle.
