    Depending on which county you move to, it's easy to moderately difficult in NYS. Unfortunately, you will need to show "need" to carry concealed, NY is a "may issue" state. Many permits are issued "for hunting and target practice only". There are many reasons that are valid though. Niagara county (North of Buffalo) is a bit easier than Erie County. Either way, be prepared to wait. Mine took 8 months, 6 is average, and I believe there is a minimum residency period.

    Good luck.

    Not sure of Florida's requirements, But your pistols will have to be listed on your license here.

    It seems as tho counties with cities over 100,000 people take longer to get and are more restrictive. While looking for NY permit info, I found this site... http://www.ar15.com/lite/topic.html?...=289278&page=1 It's not completely accurate but it will give you a good idea how easy or difficult it is here.

    Here in NY, each county has a pretty wide lattitude in setting the process of getting a handgun license and the issuing judge can add restrictions as they see fit. It seems like the process of getting the license usually takes between 3 and 6 months from what I've seen.

    You need a license to posess a handgun, not just for carring.

    Each handgun has to be listed on your license, and the license amended for each purchase or sale.

    I hope this helps. And why the @#$%* are you leaving Florida for Buffalo? In the winter???
