I've got a pretty good idea of how difficult it is to obtain a carry permit in upstate NY, my question here is would it be that much more in my favor to getting approved if I already have one in another state ?? I understand first timers in NY may have it pretty difficult, but someone moving to the area who has shown responsibility within the previous state of carrying concealed, that it may be a bit easier to get. Any thoughts to this ?? Reason i ask is that it is probable that i will be moving to upstate NY around the beginning of 11' so that my GF will be close to her family again. I hate the thought that i wont be able to carry anymore... almost makes me sick.
