Permit wait time?

  1. I'm currently waiting for my pistol permit. Been waiting just over 5 months. How long did you have to wait? And what was your first pistol?

    I was told 3-6 in Niagara County, but it appears they were wrong.... still waiting and not even a reference contacted yet.
     
  5. My references were contacted 2 months after I handed in the paperwork.

    14 months from when paperwork was put in to gun in hand.

    That was ulster county. References where never contacted. Judge gave me unrestricted right away.

    Transferred to Lewis county a year later. That was almost fun and took two weeks.
     
  7. Why does it take so long in your counties? In herkimer county my friends have gotten theirs in 4 to 6 months

    Politics, staff size doing the processing, amount of applications in the pile, how the county processes the applications, and the judges calendar for interviews .

    Yeah - it is a pretty ridiculous process, but it is what it is for now. The waiting is a killer, especially when I am clean as a whistle and former Military.

    Course instructor told me the best thing I could do is submit it and pretend it never happened so when it shows up it's a surprise. Pretty much what I did. If I remember, a round 12 months. Erie county. Springfield XD40.

    Spohn315,
    Can I ask what the timeframe was between buying your first gun with the approval letter to your appointment to pick up the permit?
    Thx.
