Ahhh what a good feeling! Feels almost as good as my first permit that I received years ago. For those who don't know my story, I moved to NY two years ago while my wife finishes up her training...the gun laws didn't go over well in our house with both of us being strong proponents of the second...but this is where we had to be. Anyway, now, two years after moving here I can finally possess and carry a pistol once again...mind you I couldn't even have a pistol in my house before now. Of course we will only be living here for another year and 3 weeks but I'm happy to have it anyway. I jumped through all the hoops and paid all of the money so I think I will make an official run to Wally World for nachos since I never got to do that back when I got my first permit. Anyway, I just thought I'd share another one of those "got my CCW" posts...with a twist.
It's not what you go thru in life, but how well you go thru it.
Man, I can feel your joy! Congratulations.

I thought no one other than PI or security could get one.

Good for you, hope you get out of there soon, surely not a place I would want to be either.

Thanks for all of the congrats guys! I feel better when I have the means to defend myself and I've felt a bit naked over the last two years. To get a carry permit here isn't all that "hard" per se but you need 3 notarized references from your previous state as well as 4 references from your county...it took me a while to meet the 4 local references so I didn't get my permit in until mid December...8 months later and I have a full NY carry permit. Thankfully not many places are off limits here...think I'll get my MA permit now just so that I can drive from NY to ME while carrying
