    Hello from Erie County, NY

    Hi folks,

    How's it going? Looks like you guys have a great site here. I'm a law student in Buffalo and am looking to get my carry permit in Erie County, NY.

    I have heard that the judge(s) who approves the permits in this county is very averse to making them unrestricted, and tends to approve them for target practice and hunting only. I was wondering if there is any non-law enforcement officer from Erie County on this website who has managed to get an unrestricted permit in the county? Any tips or advice you could give me would be appreciated because I want the permit for self-defense, and having those restrictions makes the permit pretty much worthless.

    Since I'm on the other side of the country, I can't be much help with your question, but I'm sure someone will jump in. But I can welcome you to the forum. Welcome from Washington State.

    Welcome from Montana.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Welcome, from the Catskill Mountains of New York State!

    Yes, as you know, it's up to the local judge, here in NY State. You can always arrange a meeting with him/her and ask for an unrestricted permit. If you can show that you have a need for a carry permit, job related, or safety related, then he/she should give you the permit.

    Since you are a student, I assume you are relatively young, so I suggest strongly that if you make an appointment to see the judge, dress neatly, be polite and hope for the best.

    Keep us posted, and good luck!
