My permit finally came in the mail yesterday. It took about 5 months to come, which, sadly for my county is rather fast as of late. Went to the gun store today and purchased a S&W MP in 40 cal full size. Gotta go drop off the paperwork Friday or Monday, and anxiously await the printed permit to show up in the mail (I'm told 2 weeks) so I can go get my new toy. Guy I bought from was a bit of a crotchety old *******, but still happy with my purchase. I think he was trying to be funny, and was failing miserably.
After I bought, I started to think - all my guns are black. Solid black. Next trap gun or pistol has to add some color methinks. Anywho - can't wait and just wanted to give some hope to the poor people of NYS. After feeling like a 7 yr old waiting for my box top toy to come in the mail and diligently looking for it daily, it did eventually show up.
Welcome and Congrats be safe out there.
I rather be safe then sorry.
It's better to have it when you need it then need it and dont have it.
Congrats! Restricted or Unrestricted?
I applied for "Target and hunting". I heard unrestricted is a pipe dream off the bat in this county unless you can make an ungodly good case for it (I can't). I'll start w/that, get a membership to a 24/7 range, and go from there. IN a year or 2 I'll apply to get it upgraded. Advice/tricks for the approval are welcomed. I went for what I did because I just wanted the damn thing.
Congrats and enjoy.

You need to find a way to get down here to Chautauqua County. Permits come unrestricted from the start, they take about 4 to 6 weeks and you take the paperwork to the pistol permit office, get the gun added to your permit and pick up the new gun the same day.
I wish I could have/did do that. From what I gather, NYS law states that if you're a resident, since a state license you should be able to apply in any county. However, NYS sucks *****, especially erie county, and I didn't wanna deal with any potential complications that may arise from me playing those types of games. However, while I give a big (*)&)*^B to NYS and Hillary Clinton for coming here to boost her political visibility cuz the idiots in NYC would elect her, I must give props to the county permit dept. I must have called them at least 4-5 times to check on the status, and they were polite and professional every time.
congrats on the permit and welcome from Mesa, AZ! Stay armed, stay safe!

If you have a business, even a secondary one that would indicate need for a weapon (mine was second small career as photographer), get a Doing Business in Erie County Certificate at the County Bldg. You need nothing but a name for the business. It costs $30. With that, you change your application - in your case it would be new one I think (call and ask if this is relevant to you)- write up the business reason for CCW and enclose the DBA (Doing Business etc.) Certificate and you should be set. With Business Carry, you can usually have reason - handling cash, withdrawing money for business purposes etc. - that you likely could CCW all the time anyway.
Hope all this helps.
Congrats and stay safe!

I Retired & moved upstate here in NYS 8 yrs ago & had an non restricted CCWP in NYC for the last 30+ yrs due to the nature of my Job there, but when I moved Upstate I had to turn in my NYC permit & re apply as a Resident in my new county & go before the Judge etc. he had all of my personnel data including my Military record etc. Unblemished etc. & he gave me a Non- Restricted CCWP for the amount of $5.00 for life here in NYS He said that because of my backround & Job etc. Nice Judge I have thanked him for the last few years by serving on his Re- Election Committe etc. ( BROWN NOSEING ) if you want to call it that, but he is a really nice guy, that carries 2 Glock's on him every day, He reminds me of the Judge from the Movie " AND JUSTICE FOR ALL " with Al Pacino. con grads on your CCWP.
