    -proof of handgun safety class,
    -proof of handgun ownership.


    On March 3, 2008, I handed my completed application in at the Sheriff's Dept.

    I just received notice that my interview with the Sheriff's Investigation Unit will be on April 22, 2008. Sometime after that, my paperwork will be sent off to a Judge who will make a determination as to weather or not I am worthy TO BE ABLE TO USE THE HANDGUN I HAD TO BUY INORDER TO SUBMIT MY APPLICATION!!! I may or may not have to meet with the Judge to explain my reasons for wanting a Pistol Permit and to find out what restrictions will be placed on my Permit. If all goes smoothly there and the Judge signs off, my paperwork goes back to the Pistol Permit dept. at the County Clerk's office where they'll print up my Permit and call me to pick it up. I'm hoping for June or July.

    All this nonsense made me re-up my NRA mambership. And after I have my Permit in hand, I am going to make myself a huge pain in the ass for all of the county politicians who felt it necessary to add more hoops to jump through - on top of what the state requires - inorder to het a Pistol Permit.
    I am amazed at new yorks process. I was licensed when i lived in mass 10 + years ago. I applied, Talked to Shermy (our Chief of Police), and got the permit 5 days later, then went and bought what i wanted and could afford.

    New York Now:
    4 (in county) references, Application, reason, class
    Ok i'm good so far.

    10 weeks after i turned it in, still no FBI response.
    12 weeks after i turned in application. Approve Unrestricted.
    13 weeks, County Clerk Finally answers my questions (they couldn't get in touch with me, my mailing addres and living address are 2 different towns (and counties) and there is only room for residence on the application).
    So then I find out i have to purchase a gun to get my gun purchase "slip" to give to the dealer to get hte gun i purchased?????
    and THEN i can pick up the Pistol Permit.

    BUt I did. (ok anyone know THAt quote? if so you are just as demented as me)

    2 weeks. Had I lived in the Phoenix area it would have taken less Post Office time.

    Thought I had answered this before but on review determined I hadn't.

    10 days in KY. They don't do fingerprints here, either.

    I was kind of surprised at the thickness of the ledger I signed when I picked it up. I signed close to the end of it. That sucker looked big enough to hold every name in the county, and was only for CCDW holders.

    Here in Orange County, NY I submitted my application in the begining of March and I got my permit last Tuesday, 2-1/2 months after I submitted it. By New York standards that was pretty quick.

    A buddy of mine received his CCW permit this week. It took 83 days from the date of application. This is in Knox County, TN.

    I made the mistake of applying before Christmas, got my card back like Jan 20th, plus I had to wait for a convenient time to get the pic and card in hand.

    NY is getting tougher, but the laws says it can't take longer than 6 mos. and when you finnally do get it there are usually restricted carry...
    What is restricted carry in NY?

    I was told it was pretty much dependent on the county you live it as far as how tough it is. It all comes down to the judge granting the permit or not.

    I know you cannot carry inside any of the NYC boroughs, but outside of that I had not heard of any restrictions.

    It seems to vary a bit from county to county...... I did not know this until I read what you guys have said here....

    So far my process has been similar but not exactly the same.....YET!!

    I got my 4 references, got my prints done, saw a notary, paid my dues, got pictures taken and handed in all my papers.....

    The clerk told me that the next step was my interview with a deputy or sheriff (in 4-8 weeks), then the judge will make his ruling (before 6mos) so now all I can do is wait...... but since I've been talking about doing this for two years already the wait won't be too much of a big deal....

    I guess the purchasing part will probably the same as you guys....

    I know you cannot carry inside any of the NYC boroughs, but outside of that I had not heard of any restrictions.
    In New York, the judge who signs off on your license has the ability to add restrictions, or conditions, to your license. These are purposes that the judge says you can lawfuly use your handgun for, but it is a bit ambigous because NY issues only one type of consealed carry license. For example, my license says "Hunting, Target" on the front with no explaination, but on the back says "This license is issued with the following conditions: 1. It is revocable at any time. 2. If issued outside NYC, not valid to carry a weapon in NYC unless approved by the police comissioner of that city."

    I know of one judge who will only issue licenses with restrictions, but will let you apply to have the restrictions removed after a period of time...almost like an extended waiting period. In any case, I usually don't carry unless I'm on my way to or from the range, but if I felt the need to carry, the gun is coming with me - and with the right lawyer, the law will be on my side.

    Glad you said "felt" and not "feel", therefore I can assume you're only talking hypothetically and not actually admitting to carrying in direct violation of your permit restrictions; which we all know would be illegal. And, say it with me, we don't discuss illegal activity on the forum.

    I have had my CCW for 4 years. It took 6 months to the day to get my permit. I live in upstate New York (Monroe County) and the only restriction I have is no carry in NYC.

    Todd, I am in no way suggesting anything unlawful. Just trying to point out the ambiguity of the nonsense we've got to put up with here in the Great State of New York. The laws regarding handgun licenses make no provision for judges to add restrictions to the license. Its something judges have started doing on their own and has not been addressed by the state legislature - legislating from the bench at its finest!

    In my case, my license has contradictory information on the front and back. In the strictest and most restrictive interpretation, I am allowed to carry a handgun while engaged in as well as traveling to and from activities involving hunting and target shooting as long as I steer clear of NYC.

    So, (these are all hypothetically) if I were to carry a handgun on the way to a shooting range, I would be acting legally. If I were to stop at Walmart on the way to the range to get ammo, and stop for lunch on the way home, I'd be legal. But if anything happened along the way that required me to defend myself using a handgun, the question of weather or not I acted legally would likely be answered by how good of a lawyer I could afford.

    Due to the back up at the Sherriffs office Guilford County North carolina takes at least 5 weeks to get in to apply. Then it nominally takes 60 to nearly the full 90 days allowed by law.

    Cortland.......

    I see what you are saying about the restrictions.....

    I'm like you, I really only want to carry to the range or competitions. I doubt I'll be carrying it any other time so a sport/hunting type restriction would not really bother me.....
