Welcome from West Tennessee!
The Glock 23 is a great gun. I carry one every day.
Hi neighbor! I'm at Exit 20 on the Thruway in Saugerties, in the heart of the Catskills.
In Ulster County it goes this way, and I understand it's similar in almost all other NY counties:
1) You need to start at your county's sheriff's office. They will give you the applications and paperwork you need.
2) You will then need to have 4 noterized letters of recommendation.
3) You will need to get fingerprinted and FBI checked. There is a fee for this of usually $99, sometimes more.
4) Your completed application will go before the county judge, who will (at his or her whim), issue you a full carry permit, or restricted permit. You may need to go in front of the judge to explain reasons for the CCW.
Recommendation: Enter all possible uses on your paperwork... hunting, target, competition, etc. I think you will be more likely to get the unrestricted permit.
Lastly, be prepared to wait about 4 months for this all to happen. Have heart, be patient, and good luck!
