No CWL in NY??
I just moved to NY State. I have a CWL from Florida where I lived for 17 years. NY doesn't recipicate...and so far I found that they don't even have their own CWL. What kind of crap is that?? Does anyone have any info on that?? I don't hunt...it's just for protection...I guess NY gets a "A" MM. I used to be the Florida state Coord for SAS, I don't know how they can have that here...no guns...
Looks like it is possible to get a permit, but it will depend on the county you live in.
I told you not to move, but you had to be contrary :biggrin:
Stacey? Come live in NH, where it's free........Just a short ride further East...
Stacey, plenty of counties in NY issue CCW permits. There are a few that don't, most notably NYC. I'm in Ulster county and it's basically a "shall issue" county. It takes a while, and there are a few hoops to jump through, but unless there's some reason not to, you'll get an unrestricted permit in this county. Others are not so good, but there is a broad spectrum.
Can you share what county you live in? That might make the advice a bit more accurate.
Fellow NY'er here, In my county (Warren) we have shall-issue with Judges decresion. In my county everyone gets "restricted" permits as the judge is a non-gun person :mad: . Now, every cop I have asked about it (even 2 troopers) said that they wouldn't hassle anyone about it cause of what you have to go through to get one in NY (cost me $160 + a 12 week wait)
Hy there Cowgirl,
I lived in Lewis Co. when I applied, and received my permit. I soon moved back to Onondaga Co. I wasn't sure if I could still Conceal carry there? Honestly, I did much of the time anyhow. I felt it was crazy to have a permit, and NOT carry in Syracuse (or Sorryexcuse :wink: ). I know that I could carry, and posses within my property, or at a range.
What in the world possessed you to move to N.Y.S. anyhow? It just seems backwards:confused:
$10.00 sayes you will be back :wink: .
Go to your county clerk's office and obtain the forms you'll need. You'll have to pay a fee or fees, get fingerprinted at the local cop shop, provide references and other information, and then wait several months. Unless you're in a hellhole of a county, you'll get your CCW permit.
I've held a permit in New York State for years.
Yankeecow girl , hope ya live in a county ya can get a permit in. Good luck
