    Judging by the condition of the permit I'm guessing he carried often. Looks like he sure had his permit with him all the time.
    Good man. A nice, unique little piece of family history that you have there.


    Yeah...I noticed there is No Expiration Date printed on there. It would be great if you had the same name.

    Great find. Make a color copy of it, frame it, and hang it in your house. Keep the original in the gunsafe.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Very neat, but also a sad reminder that sort of regulation has been going on so long.

    I'm looking into getting it encased in Lucite...that way you can look at both sides of the permit. Would be nice for something on the wall, but more interesting to have it on my desk at work--good conversation piece.

    Also--the original owner is from my mom's side, so no common name. Additionally, it shows his place of birth as "Germany". He came from northern Italy, but was on a German ship...I guess the predecessor of Customs & TSA couldn't even get that detail right, so at least the gov't is consistent in that regard. Oh yeah, and they misspelled his name (now spelled Kolletty vs Coletti). What makes him different than some of these immigrants of today? He came here *legally*...

    ....clear on the left....clear on the right......range is hot!

    Don't do it! You'll ruin the document. I recommend you have it framed in two-sided glass by someone experienced indocument preservation. Dunking it in plastic make the originall inaccessible for ever.

    You have a wonderful and historic keepsake there. Talk a someone with experience preserving such documents so future gnerations will aslo be able to enjoy it.

    I agree, a great piece of family history. But it just goes to show you, places like NYC have been regulating, citizens "rights", for decades. Sorry didn't mean to be a buzzkill, just an observation. Anyway still a great piece of history and thanks for sharing it here.

    OK - I just saw that. Good looking out.
    They were issued and valid for only one year max?
    That's odd.
