Moving to Upstate NY

Hey there. I'm new to the forum, so if this question has been asked and answered, I apologize.

I am planning to move from Connecticut to Upstate NY (Monroe County) and I would like to get an unrestricted pistol permit. I have had a Connecticut permit for the past 4 years, and I am originally from Madison County (just west of Syracuse).

I understand that there is a 6 month waiting period, but I'm not clear whether that applies to people moving into the state and/or those who already have a permit in another state.

Any help would be great.

Thanks.

Monroe Co. does not restrict permits so it is a decent choice of counties. Register to vote and if you only cast one, be sure it is for the Republican running for NY State Senate this November. If Democrats take over the Senate , you might want to look at returning to Conn.

I'm not sure how Monroe handles it, but in Dutchess County, all of your references have to reside in the same county, and I think must also have known you for some three years or more. So, someone moving into Dutchess not knowing anyone there could take a while to get a permit.

New York does not honor any other state permits, so the fact that you have a CT permit already doesn't amount to much. You'll have to go through the same process. Being new to the county, it could be a bit tough. Good luck Tom! Let us know how you make out.

6 months would be pretty fast. It took me nearly 10 months to get my permit in Monroe County. It's not cheap either. It cost me close to $140 after photos, application, fingerprinting, etc.. It was definitely worth it, but there is quite a process to file everything completely. There may be a requirement of you residing in the county for a specified period of time, but I'm not sure. Good luck to you and welcome back to NYS.

Compadre,

Thanks for responding. The 6 months was only the time before I can apply. I'm sure that the processing will take a solid 4-6 additional months.

If you don't mind lend a hand, I have two questions:

1) Is it true that Monore County gives out only unrestricted permits

2) Do you have any advice regarding applying in Monroe county?

Thanks again,
Tom

Better plan on buying a slingshot if you insist on moving to NY

THAT'S what I was gonna say. I'd move to Connecticut in a heartbeat, when it comes to concealed carry. I got my resident unrestricted permit in NY, then went for one in CT (I work there). Their system is way better, way more respectful to CCWs than NY will ever be.

Welcome to NY...Land of taxes. Before you bring your firearms into NY, check the regulations, but it is my understanding that you cannot posess a handgun in NY without having a permit. It can be hunting and target, or unrestricted...but you cannot "posess" a nahdgun in NY without it.
You may have to find a FFL in Conn to hold them until you can legally bring them into NY.
I'm not an expert nor a lawyer, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Strip down your handguns. Bring the barrels slides and cylinders with you. Leave the Frames with family in CT or a friend.
When you finally get your NY License you can the FFl to FFL the frames. Then take the FFL paper to the pistol office and you are good to go.

Welcome to the state that has the whole country spinning. Previous posts are correct, without a NYS permit, this state doesn't crae what states permit you hold, you are in possession of an illegal firearm. Sorry. Still working on my permit in schenectady county. I have my appointment with the judge on feb 28. Start to finish, 1 year and 235$.

Problem lies with the new guy..."jsiberians". He just needs to check the "posted on" date before he replies to another members thread. We will chalk it up to beginners error. I wasn't looking to embarrass anyone...Just prevent more needless comments to someone who probably will never be back to read them any how.
