    Texas doesn't make you wait either. They run you through NCIC while you are standing there to make sure your not a Felon or a Nutbag, ( takes about 3 minutes), if your clear you pay the man and take your weapon. If you have a concealed carry permit you show it and they skip the backround check.

    Lets say you lay down your money for a gun submit your request and the Judge, having a bad day, declines your permit. Is the vendor required by law to refund the purchase price or can you simply be out the cost of the gun?

    Most say they will refund your money if your permit is declined, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were shops out there that would either refuse to refund the price, or would hit you with a "restocking fee" or some other crap.

    Funny though, NY state law doesn't address this. So much for protecting the citizens....

    The really crazy part is that while you're required to buy the gun before you can get the permit, by law you're not allowed to even handle a handgun before you get your permit. So for your first gun anyway, you have to buy a gun that you might never had a chance to even pick up and hold.

    Kev74, I was told at the shop last week that once you receive the letter in the mail that states you have been approved you can take that into the gun shop and then be able to handle the gun and find one that "fits"

    Then the down payment.
    Then to the police station.
    Then the wait to be approved
    the back to the shop to pick up the gun.

    I am new to this so please correct me if I missunderstood. This is what I was told at the shop.

    There is a bit of difference between counties, but NYS law says you can't handle a handgun without a permit.

    NYS Penal Law Section 400

    Weather or not your local shop wants to comply with the law is another story.

    I agree on that. What I was trying to say was that when you get approved for a permit they send you a letter (at least in dutchess) and with that you can then take that to the shop and hold gun because you now have been approved for a permit.

    Then go and jump through all the other hoops to have it amended.

    Here in Orange County, you have to hand in proof of ownership of a gun before your paperwork will be processed. By the time you get the letter saying your approved here, you can go and get the permit the same day.

    I dont mean nervous in the sense I wont be approved, I mean nervous in its just another avenue to control the whole right to possess a handgun. A lot of areas down here that seem open to interpretation in my opinion. Rules that could be twisted to suit whomever wanted to change things.

    That's it exactly. The other part is that they keep making it more and more difficult to complete the application process with the intention that less applicants will follow the process through to completion.

    Figured I'd throw out an update. I guess they give you worst case scenario, because it ended up only being about a week and a half before I received my amended permit and picked up my Glock 22. Not too bad I guess.

    Gotta agree. I love this state sometimes. Not only the ease of purchase, but there are limitations on the amount of time the county\state can take on getting you your CCW. As soon as I submit my info to the county sherrif's department, they legally have to either deny me or issue my CCW within 60 days. At least thats what the sherrif and the Kentucky State website said. Hope it's true.

    I live in Vermont, New York is so close but yet so far on gun issues! If I decide to buy a gun I can have it home in an hour shooting it. We can carry any place that is not a school or federal building. I carry to work every day, sometimes concealed and sometime not!
    I guess there are a couple of things I still like about Vermont.
    I wish some of these liberals would move back to their states!

    I get up to Vermont often can you recomend a good gun shop in the lower Vermont area. I ususlly travel to Manchester. Since I can not handle a handgun here in NY until I get my permit. (Could be another 6 months) I would like to get up there and get a feel for some guns before purchasing them.
    Thanks
