    THIS is according to an NYC born and raised there for a while person, namely me... WHY WOULD YOU MOVE TO THAT SEWER(because the word I would use should never be mentioned on a family forum) HOLE? Live in PA and commute on the days your client needs protection OR get client to sign for 24/7 protection and live with them to cover your want to carry while not with client. Only 2 options, IMHO and as for the 24/7 thing,dont know if that works for you or not. Just a thought.

    I would study a different form of martial arts.

    While I’ll agree some forms are better than others, none of them are worth moving to NYC.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love NYC for its shows, shopping, and food, but I could not imagine going there unarmed.

    And I figure that just because you apply for a security job, you still won’t see a gun permit for at least six months.

    Yeah I was going down that list and a lot of them are out of business too. I don't know why AYF hasn't taken them off.

    Also, I was considering NYC because my mom has friends there who are gonna help me find a job and an apartment and she wasn't comfortable with me going to an unfamiliar area without knowing someone. She can be a bit overprotective, but I love her anyway

    I've been unarmed for 21 years, I hope 22 won't kill me *knock on wood*

    As a former bodyguard, (CPS),
    And a former resident of NY State, I gotta tell you, there is no such thing as a "bodyguard license". If you work for an armed security company you MAY be able to get a permit, but no guarantee, and you won't have any ability to carry of duty. To the state you are just another non LEO.
    Most bodyguards obtain multi state CCWS, and/or go through attorneys and politicians to attempt to get permits where they are working. Without mony or connections, it's tough.

    Geez, I guess in NYC, and too many other places too, they think money, jewelry, perscription drugs are more valuable than a human life!! Where is the logic in that??? Sad.

    She's overprotective, yet wants you to go to one of the most dangerous cities in the country, where you can't protect yourself ?

    I think it's time to find a new mom .

    New York City? A self-absorbed, arrogant, leftist, radical gun-grabber like Bloomberg has re-purchased the mayors office and you are considering that Marxist dictatorship as a HOME??!! You HAVE NO rights in NY! Just start from there when asking questions about your rights. Or rather, you have the right to do what that leftist thug TELLS you to do...for your own good, of course. Move to a small town in the bible belt where actual Americans still have a few rights.

    I don't plan on staying there permanently. You have to have a first degree black belt to become a teacher and that's what I wanting to do. It takes five years to do it, so it's about the same as going to college and I wouldn't be able to carry at University of Florida either.

    I've lived in small southern towns my whole life and I love 'em, but the big city is fun too.

    I just read the other day that NYC alone has issued approximately 40,000 CCL's.

    I would never go to New York without a Glock... pointed at my head, that is...

    Hey guys, thought you'd be relieved to know that I'm not going to NYC. The place that I was supposed to work asked to conduct an interview via skype, but never set a time. So now I'm looking at doing a live-in internship at the Democratic school in Santa Fe NM, there's a dojo there which teaches Doshinkan Aikido which is derived from Yoshinkan but I think adapted more for modern street self-defense scenarios.

    So I saw that you can only carry one gun in NM, does that mean at a time, or you're restricted to only the one that you took the course with? Like if I have a glock 19 and a 26, can I carry the 19 somedays and the 26 somedays, or do I have to always carry the 19? What if it was a Glock 19 and a S&W 642? Do I have to stay in the same caliber?

    Well, actually, I live in FL. I was considering NYC because it had a Yoshinkan Dojo and I wanted to see what living in a big city was like after spending all my life in the rural South, LOL. Then when NYC fell through I looked again and found out about Doshinkan and the dojo in Santa Fe.

    I went to the state website and they said you cannot carry a higher caliber than what you took the course with, but you can carry a lower one. But they also had a sample license and it had a pistol and revolver listed on it. Can you qualify with one of each? Can you re-qualify with a larger caliber if you want to change later on?
