I'll be coming up on living here (PRNY) for 6mo. pretty soon so I wanted to get started on my pistol permit application and had a couple of questions for anyone who has gone through it...especially if you are in Monroe County.
- Has anyone here ever been a reference for a permit application? I'm just looking for a general idea of the type of questions that they ask. Since I have to come up with 7 people to use as references, I haven't seen some of them in a couple of years and was just wondering if this would be a problem.
- Anyone know if you can cross-list a firearm on two permits in Monroe? ie. the same gun on both my permit and my wife's permit. When we lived in NH sometimes we would carry each otherís guns and I was wondering if this is possible here since Iíve heard that some counties donít allow this.
- Is it OK to list multiple handguns on the initial pistol permit application and, when approved, will the S/Ns be on my permit or will I have to get something from my transferring FFL that says the pistols actually exist?
- Anything else I should know about the process? Other than the fact that it takes a looonnngggg time to get approved? Last I heard Monroe was as close to a shall issue county as you could get. Has anything changed with the judges in the last few months?
Thanks so much for the time and help I know itís a lot of questions, and I know that most people on here live in free states, but I want to do this right!
I found this website helpful in answering a lot of my questions so I'll post it in case someone else here is in the same boat as me.
Hopefully, someday soon, I will be able to carry once again! ...after jumping through the proverbial hoops of course.
replied with question for you.

I got mine in Ontario county last year. The LEO that investigated me was very PRO 2-A and VERY thorough. I had 4 written references and he asked for a couple more on the phone during the process.
The upshot is that it only took 7 weeks from fingerprints to notice that it was approved. Which is REALLY fast for NYS.
Ontario is effectively a shall issue county.
NYS is strange, they check your background like it is a security clearance but then don't require any training. To take a shotgun into the woods and hunt anything you need a 2 day course, but i can walk around just about anywhere in public with a loaded handgun concealed and no training is required.
NY is strange and varies by COunty. On Long Island you woul dhave to live there for a year before even applying as the references must be people in the county who have known you for over a year. Other counties may vary.
I do not know if you have had it addressed but do NOT bring your handguns into NYS with you without first getting something in writing from the issuing agency in NY. Odds are you will have to have them shipped from a FFL in NH to a FFL in NY where you will then have to go through all the hassle and paperwork to say nothing of the expense of transferring them. It can get expensive quickly.
The good news is when you leave simple tell them to Kiss your A$$ and never return.
Good luck in Monroe, I was looking into a job near there once for a firearms related company but it was not to be.
All of my handguns are registered on both mine and my wifes permit.I think if you are only going to live here six months you are SOL,I think you have to be a resident to apply,and by the time you submit the paperwork and recieve the permit you will most likely already have moved on.
