    And the beat goes on...8 weeks and a day, 57 days and still no purchase authorization. I actually had my handgun license approved in less time than it's taking to be approved for a second gun. Man am I steamed and now I'll have to wait another 12 days or more to pick up my gun because I'm going on vacation this weekend. If I wasn't going away I would be putting up a stink with the NYPD but at this point it doesn't pay. They would probably just stick my authorization back at the bottom of the pile.

    Congrats on your purchase.

    You chose one of the very best handguns in the world.....bar none.

    The actual hoops to jump through to have a legal "Transport Unloaded - Hunting and Target" to go to a range took me over three months and $150.
    I think things are much easier in Michigan now ?
    Back then an actual concealed carry permit required you to be a security firm employee, or "politically connected". WELL connected.
    But I read that Michigan now has a CCW shall issue system ?

    In any case, in 1997 I retired at age 54 and had a house built here in AZ "out in the county". Two hours north of Phoenix.
    We've got forests and mountains and high desert valleys. It's gun country. I've never looked back.

    Oh yeah, the idiots from California who "want to change our culture" freak out over folks who open carry.
    "We've got to stop THAT ! ! !"
    Ain't happening.

    In MI you have to obtain a Permit to Purchase by going down to your local LE Agency and getting the background checks. You then take the permit to go buy the handgun, then take it back to station for "Safety Check" which is a nice way to say gun registration.
    This was the way I did it back in 1993 and then in 2008. A real PITA without CPL
    If you have a CPL you don't need a Permit To Purchase but after purchasing handgun you send in your registration.
    Now in KY, like AZ, gun freedom at it's best. If you do not have a CCDW, dealer phones in background check, fill out 4473, you walk away minutes later. With a CCDW, fill out 4473, pay and walk.
    Plus the "D" in CCDW means Deadly, you can carry a long list of weapons, auto knives, etc.
    I love KY.

    What we have in Indiana is called an "LTCH" (License to Carry a Handgun). Whether you have one or not, though, all you have to make a purchase from an FFL is fill out the 4473, give him the 2-3 minutes to call in the background check, and hand him the money. Can't get much simpler than that!

    Same in WV. Need permit to carry concealed, but I can make a purchase from FFL in the same few minutes. And open carry is legal.

    Ain't it great to live in a "non-socialist" state?

    California is likewise bankrupt and 16 billion dollars in debt, now that's what I call a responsible government, they know what's best for their subjects alright. Someone is going to have to tell them repression and socialism/communism doesn't work.

    Well, I'm back from my cruise and lo and behold my purchase authorization has finally been approved after slightly more than a two month wait. Today I went to 1 Police Plaza to pick up the authorization (heaven forbid they should mail it). On Saturday I'll pick up the gun but still deciding between the PX4 or the 92FS in black. Can't wait!

    Go with the 92, you won't be sorry...........man, I didn't realize that so many states had such screwed up policies and laws.....up here, you make your firearm purchase, and there is a two day waiting period...fill out the paperwork, pick up in two days......no limitation on number of purchases, although, I know a few people that made more than four purchases a year, and got visits from the ATF. They wanted to know if they still owned the firearms, and if not, where were they.....their answer...." I sold it to some guy", which is not illegal...you can also sell at the gunshows, without FFL. Luckily, my FFL has been in business, privately, for about 25 years....he deals with the local Leo's and ATF, and retired FBI, so they know he's on the up and up, and no worries for me.

    A PX4 or a 92FS, both great guns. I have a Beretta cougar with the rotating barrel; I feel hardly any recoil with it. I sometimes I shoot a PX4 .40 they have at at the range and the same, hardly any recoil. Good luck with your choice. I use to live in NYC back in the 70's. I am glad I moved out. I have my CW/F license from FL. With that there is never a wait.

    I do have a deposit down on the PX4 but can easily change to the 92FS. Still undecided but I'm leaning toward the 92FS because of the longer barrel. Since it's not going to be a carry gun (in NYC, yeah right) I think the 92FS might be the better choice. I guess I won't be able to decide until I'm holding both of them one last time.

    The Storm is equally as great as well and you won't be sorry, I own both. If I were you I'd get the 92FS and a Storm Compact and have the best of both worlds.

    Are you going to be carrying this gun? If so, I would go with the PX4, if not I would go for the 92FS. Sorry about all the BS you have to go through in your state. Communist.

    No, not for carry. That's exactly why I'm leaning toward the 92FS.

    I absolutely love mine. It is the best shooting 9mm, next to the Browning Hi Power, I have ever shot.

    Well, I finally have it...a brand new Beretta 92FS. Picked it up this morning after nearly a 2 1/2 month wait from the NYPD for a purchase authorization. Although I have been totally exasperated at times due to the lengthy wait and miles of red tape I'm a happy man today. All of the BS was finally worth it and if you live in NYC you know what I mean. If you live in most any other state in this country, count your blessings.
    Can't wait to take it to the range but the first order of business is to celebrate by cracking open that new bottle of Glenlivet that I just brought back from my cruise. Cheers.

    Well then, the only advice I would have would be to stock up on 9mm ammo. When the bottom finally falls out on all this, and being that there will be a lot of people around you that would kill you for a bottle of water, that shiny new Beretta of yours will keep you alive to get to a less populated area.

    Thanks for the congrats. Tomorrow I'll need to go to 1 Police Plaza in the city to have the gun inspected and recorded on my license. The red tape isn't exactly over yet but it will be by this time tomorrow. NYPD only gives you 72 hours after purchase to have the gun inspected. Just hope that I don't become ill overnight. I wonder what they would do if I exceeded the 72 hour limit?
    If anyone has a recommendation for some inexpensive, clean burning 9mm ammo let me know.

    What a day today and not in a good way. It took 3 hours to get my gun inspection done today and right about now I need a stiff drink. To make a very long story short, the machine that creates the licenses was slow and then stopped working entirely. Then the incompetent idiot who was taking care of this typed in the wrong model # on my license and it had to be done all over again which cost me another hour of my life. Couldn't really put up too much of a stink since I was in a building with about 1000 armed police officers. Talk about exasperation.
    I need to get to the range quick to release all this pent up frustration.
