    Newbie From New York

    Hi everyone,
    I've been reading lots of posts and searching a lot but I can't find exactly what I'm looking for so please excuse my post if it's been covered (in which case please direct me to the right post).

    I'm not new to shooting, but I've been in Vermont for quite a while and they require next to nothing to buy and shoot and carry handguns.

    Now that I'm in New York, I'd like to go the legal route and purchase a gun or three.
    Can anyone run me stepwise through the beginning to end process. I've read the legal websites and I understand that part (I'm pretty sure). What I'm fuzzy on is the order of things in Westchester, NY.

    Do I go to the trooper barracks and ask for an application first or do I go pick out the gun I want first so I can tell whoever is in charge of my intent to purchase it? This part is confusing me. Any help would really be appreciated since I hear it can take quite a while for the paperwork to go through. I'd like to get it started asap so the ball starts rolling.
    Thanks for your help,

    AutoFX

    Welcome from South Carolina.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Welcome to the forum.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    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.
