    Congratulations on your new 92. I really enjoy my 92's. Let us know how she handles when you get back from the range.

    Just out of curiosity, what kind of "paperwork" were you waiting 6 weeks for? Not being from "New Joisy", I'm not familiar with having to have a note from my Mommy before I can buy a gun. (Do yourself a favor and stay in Indianapolis! )

    It's now been seven weeks since I submitted my purchase authorization request to the NYPD for my second handgun. Seven weeks for someone who has already been through the vetting process to obtain a handgun license in NYC and who already owns a handgun to be "approved" for another one. I know it's part of NYC's master plan to discourage those living in NYC to obtain guns but geez I already have a license and a gun and a deposit on a new PX4 Storm 9mm which I hope to pick up some day. Finding the particular gun you want can often be an exasperating experience as well so when I found the PX4 I jumped on it and put it on hold.
    Does anyone else feel like they're banging their heads against a wall or have to jump through hoops to legally obtain a handgun or even a second or third one? As they keep telling me at the license bureau...any day now.

    Waited 6 weeks for mine witch felt like forever, however some people told me that was fast. One guy on my fier dept waited 6 months. The only good thing was i paid my gun off while waiting.

    I called the license bureau yesterday and it was the same old story. They received my application which is still pending and I should hear from them "before the end of the month". Then I would need to go into Manhattan because they do not mail approved purchase authorizations.

    Dude no doubt. It took me like 30 minutes here in Ohio. So you have to go through this every time you get a handgun? I would get two at a time lol

    That's exactly what i did. Got 2 purchase permits. The only bad thing is there only good for 90 days, so after your 1st purchace you have to wait 30 days before you can make your 2nd purchase.

    I feel for you man. That's crazy. In Ohio we get 1 year to purchase anything we want. After the year is just another 30 Min FBI Background check. I mean if you go in there wanting 30 guns or something it could raise a flag and they can turn you down, but two or three here and there is all good. I got an ID that they gave me that I take when I purchase something, and they just pull the number up, and it's all good. I got my Neos a couple weeks ago, and am getting a 30-06 for my dad. Buying something for a parent here is also no problem as a gift. I don't think it will be to much longer guns will be totally illegal anyhow the way things are going.

    A friend of mine never buys new guns, he always buys them at gun shows here because no paper trail. I told him if they made them illegal, having one is pointless anyhow because if you use it, you will spend the rest of your life in prison anyhow. He is considering buying new guns now lol. I don't like used guns myself. Whats your laws on gun shows etc..? Here in Ohio you can buy a gun off anyone which I recommend calling the sheriff's office and checking the serial number.

    Hope you get your permits soon.

    You can only buy one handgun every 90 days in NYC, for a max of 4 per year with a mag limit of 10 rounds. Not that I would or could afford to buy 4 guns a year (or that my wife would let me) but it's just the damn principle of it that riles me up.

    Ah yes, all you folks provide me with good reminders about moving to AZ from MI.
    In Michigan, yep, had to get a permit from the local police to buy a handgun.
    Complete with fingerprinting, and background checks from the State Police and the FBI.
    That only took a couple of weeks. And then take the gun (disassembled, of course) back
    for the local police "to fondle" for a few days. And, your gun could ONLY be picked up
    between 1:30 and 3:00 PM on WEDNESDAYS.

    My first purchase was a Beretta 92 FS with Trijicon night sights. After a few days, I called
    the desk clerk. "Any idea when I can pick up my gun?" "Any problems?". "No problems,
    but not all of the officers have had a chance to look at it yet".


    After all this, the only place you could legally have the handgun was inside your house.
    Getting a "Transport Unloaded for Hunting or Target-Shooting" permit was MUCH WORSE.

    Been in AZ for 15 years. We no longer require a CCW permit to carry concealed. But,
    I still think it is a good idea. Info and range training isn't all bad. And, it works in your
    favor if you ever have to actually "use" your firearm.

    Best of all, in AZ with your CCW and your driver's license photo ID, and your voter registration
    you can buy a gun without any background check call to delay the purchase. Just CAREFULLY
    fill out the 4473 and you're good to go. Then pay for it. Yep, takes about 30 minutes.

    Nah. Just show them your BATFE ID card and tell them that you're on your way to Mexico.

    Man, I feel for you guys. Way down here in the great state of Alabama you just walk in to gun store or pawn shop, pick out your gun, fill out your paperwork and after a quick FBI background check you are good to go. Paperwork and background check take a total of 15 to 20 minutes, tops. And as far as I know, I could buy a gun every day if I wanted to. Never heard of any limitations here.

    Well April has come and will be gone in less than six hours and still no approved purchase authorization. Even though I was told numerous times that "you'll have it by the end of April". Oh, silly me. They meant April, 2013.
