Good morning all,
New to this forum (but have read and searched it's content in the past for info and advice).
I have finally received my Putnam County, NY Pistol License, but as expected, it is a restricted license, for Hunting & Target only.
I have already received information from the County Clerk's office regarding requesting an upgrade to a Full-Carry, with no restrictions (the Clerk's office already has pre-printed upgrade request handouts, so that tells me that they anticipate the request right from the get-go). (My wife's License application is still pending, but I am anticipating that she will be receiving her's sometime soon, so we will be appearing before the Judge together).
I know there have been some past discussions on this Forum regarding what specifically to include in a letter to the Putnam County Judge when requesting a hearing for an upgrade, but I'd be interested in hearing any first-hand experience from anyone who has requested an upgrade (and received one) in the past year or so. Also if anyone has had a recent hearing, what specifically you have discussed, with the Judge?
I am planning to join the Putnam County Fish & Game Club, and will be enrolling in additional firearms classes.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
