    Oh the disappointment and anticipation is gonna kill me. Bought a Glock 22 on sat. Went to the county court to submit my receipt and get my permit ammended. They told me it will be 4 weeks until I'll get my stuff back to go get my new baby. I dont know if I'm going to make it!

    What do you mean? Is it going to be a CCW gun?

    Be strong!

    Hearing stuff like this makes me glad I moved recently. I had lived in Mecklenburg County (Charlotte, NC) and moved to Iredell County (Mooresville, NC) in the past month. I've spoken with a couple of shops here and they told me that if I was still in Charlotte to expect 2-3 weeks to get a permit to purchase. In Iredell county I've been told I can get the permit from the sheriff's office, go to the shop and have a gun all in less than an hour!

    So yes, I can see how 4 weeks would be a killer. Hope it goes quickly for you!

    Not ccw. I have a target/hunting pistol license. To purchase a handgun here in NY, you must buy the pistol and then take the receipt to the county of issuance. They then submit your receipt and paperwork to the judge who then has to approve your purchase. Once approved, they send you your new license(with new pistol listed on it), and a piece of paper with the county seal stamped on it. You then take that piece of paper to whomever you purchased the handgun from, and he releases the gun to you.

    4 weeks, and the judge has to approve it. Unbelievable course of events.

    Could be worse. In Florida, they say 90 days to get your CCW. I am at 4 months and counting. They say another month or two because of backlog.

    I am also in NY. They told me 6 weeks just to get a date to get fingerprinted and photos. Then up to another 6 months for the license to be approved AND the 4 weeks to get it on your license over 8 months

    Kev from what I have heard there is a heavy influx of people requesting permits. That has put a strain on the system. With that also people that have permits have been purchasing more guns...so to your point I think these delays are here for a while.

    It would be intresting to see the sales numbers for gun and ammo companies. I wonder what the numbers look like for prior year and for year to date. It might be one of the few market segments doing well in this economy.

    Johndl,

    Between pending state legislation and the new Federal administration, the shops here in NJ can't keep guns on the shelf. Anything and everything is flying out the door, at any price. Purchase Permit applications are through the roof, and taking as long a 3 or 4 months to process. Even ammo is selling for about twice what it is in PA.

    I heard someone call it the Obama/Corzine effect.

    Gun sales have always been somewhat recession proof, but this is a new high.

    Best of luck with your struggle.

    I think, in Orange County anyway, there has been a deliberate slow down as the pace of new permit applicants has picked up. Any time I've spoken to the woman at the county pistol permit office, they've been very good about letting me know the status of my paperwork. The holdup for amendments is at the judge's desk and new permits get held up at the Sheriff's dept.

    I was at a local shop today talking to one of the sales guys. He was telling me that their cost from the distributor for Colt AR-15's is what they were selling them for back in Dec/Jan ($1200-1300). There are a lot of people all along the supply line who are making a lot of money from the increase in gun sales.

    Lucky you. Obviously you're not even remotely close to NYC. I'm in a bordering county to NYC so it takes much much longer.
    The part I dont like is when the clerk tells me it(current permit and sales receipt for new gun) goes to the judge and she has to APPROVE it and send it back. That makes me nervous.

    I dont think it should make you nervous. As long as you are purchasing a legal gun. That is how I understand it. If you have you permit and purchase ten guns that are legal in that state then they should be approved.

    The judge has to sign off on any change (amendment) to the permit, and since adding a gun is considered an amendment, it goes to the judge.

    Its all part of the way the Great State of New York does things.

    God I love my Old Kentucky home. The only thing we wait on is to save the moneyto go the shop. I've bought them three at a time then went in a week later and got two more. I think I'd go nuts in a waiting state.
