I was just curious as we are moving back to NY,Woming county to be exact. I was wondering what the wait time is for a new permit.
I currently have a CCP from here in Va.and just wanted to know how hard it is to get one in Wyoming County, does anyone have any information?
Also by having a CCP carry any weight as to shortening the wait time for said permit? Do I also have to ship my pistols through a FFL dealer to be leagal bringing them into the state or do I just bring them an become a non convicted felon? Any thoughts or ideas?
Do you know if they issue permits without restrictions? What kind of time frame am I looking at for a reply?
I turned in completed paper work Jan. 2. The beginning of June the local police interviewed me and sent it back to the permit office for the final step, judges approval. Still waiting.....I hope it's soon...Trying to be patient...:wacko:
I went to the Eric County Pistol permit web site and they do have the fomrs needed on their for down loading. They are in .PDF format so you can print them out. It looks to be an easy process . Give it a try, Good Luck.
From what i have seen it takes from 6 months to 1 year in Erie County to get a Restricted Permit. Its VERY rare for anyone to get an unrestricted permit on their 1st application. You can apply for several types of permits, Target, Target & hunting, Business , Home only or unrestricted. Typically after 5 year of permit holding you can apply to have your restrictions removed if you have a good reason, and self defense in not a good reason in Erie county. They do not have to issue a permit and can revoke it at any time. We have known people with unrestricted permits who have went to the permit office to add a new gun and had their permits restricted on the spot. They did finally upgrade the old cheap paper permits to a plastic one for an additional $21, it well worth it. One closing note, make sure you follow the directions to a T, like useing only black ink, references in your town if required, no County Sherifs for ref etc. Good luck.
