    Whats up guys, I'm new to this forum and this is obviously my first post, just wanted to let you guys know that I currently reside in Brooklyn, NY and applied for a Premises/Target (Residence) license..I contacted an agency on line that deals with pistol permits...they weren't too much help, and charged me $700.00 back on May 2010, they didn't even fill out the application correctly I had to make some adjustments....Anyway I submitted the application on July 8 and met with the investigating officer Aug 24, he told me all is well and that I SHOULDN'T have a problem being approved, he said sit tight 4-6 weeks until I receive a letter stating for me to go over to 1 police plaza to pick up a purchase authorization form..(being that he doesn't change his mind in that I SUPPOSIVLEY am being approved. Anyway, its 4 weeks now, and still no letter still waiting, wish me luck!! :-/

    Good luck, that sucks that you have to get a letter from the police, and then go to the police station for a second permission slip to buy a gun to keep in your house.

    Does the permit to keep a pistol in your apartment cost $700, or is that just what the third party, was charging you to "expedite" your permit?

    No the permit in NYC consists of $340.00 for the application itself and $94.25 for the fingerprinting..the $700.00 was just the 3rd party...BIIGG MISTAKE on my behalf I know I know, the agency did inform me though that the $700.00 will be refunded if my application is denied.

    That is INSANE!! Nevermind the $700 mistake, the $435 is enough to buy a decent gun and a good bit of practice ammo. That was spent just to get permission to buy a firearm!!

    I hope it all goes well for you. I'm about two hours west of you and it would take me less than 30 minutes to buy a new weapon, that includes driving to and from the gun shop.

    I think it would be very hard to be a law abiding citizen under those laws. Even tho you would be considered one anywhere else.

    I am glad to live where I live. I feel for you, but it is good to see someone taking up an interest despite the hurdles you have to jump.

    Patatuchy,
    Good luck with your permit. I lived my whole life in Brooklyn until I moved from there a little over 5 years ago. I had no idea what it meant to be free until I moved to PA.

    Man, that sucks. So if the permit is denied, the 3rd party refunds $700!!!!! ( that would buy a sweet gun ).
    What about the state fees? Bet not.

    Geeezzz, in for over a grand, and gun not included. That would realy grind on me.

    Down here ( TX ), guns are bought & sold at garage sales. Nobody involved but the buyer & seller.

    But best of luck. When you finally get something, let us know.

    I agree ljnowell, and keeping in mind how difficult it is here in NYC even for someone like me that has never been arrested in all my 39 years, I received 1 summons back when I was 20 or 21 (18-19) yrs ago for a left turn signal which I paid for the very next day, after that my record and driver license are squeaky clean!

    Sounds to me like these fees were aimed specifically at poor/middle class . . . I wonder if there's a basis for a legal challenge there.

    Sucks having to go through all that.

    You can edit your post to fix typos and spelling errors instead of making a new post.
