I just submitted my "Upgrade Affidavit" to Erie County and was told I'd have an answer in 2 months. I had actually gone to the permit department to request a duplicate as My old paper permit was destroyed. The clerk handed me the application and said "do your self a favor and fill this out. " I have had a Target / Hunting restriction since obtaining my Original permit in 1990. Anyone have experience with upgrade in their permit to unrestricted?
Updated Erie County Application process...I handed application in on September 8, 2011. Prints done same day. All my references were contacted in the last 5 days. Phone interview with lieutenant detective of the West Seneca Police department on June 21st. In person interview with West Seneca police chief today, June 26th. Interview was all but 10 minutes. Application goes back down to the pistol permit dept. to get reviewed by the issuing judge. If it is granted I will get a letter in the mail within the next 8 weeks. Long road of waiting and waiting..but finally at my final step of...yes...waiting. Good luck everyone! This is my second application process as I was denied the first time around 9 years ago. Wish me luck!
My son is going to accept a job transfer that would likely dictate his move from Cattaraugus County up to Erie County. He presently has a pistol permit in Catt Cty. The permit contains no restrictions (Catt Cty places no restriction on permits). He's wondering what will happen when he moves to Erie County. Will it just be a change of address procedure ? Or will the new permit contain restrictions ?
Does anyone know how long it takes for the FBI check to take? and is that usually first or does it go to local PD first?
Well.. I decided to call down to PPD to see how the status of my permit was going as I have not heard from my local P.D and my references have not been contacted. It has been almost 4 months to the date of application. My call was recieved by a very stern man who after hearing my concern (I was short and too the point - just wanted to make sure there were no issues with my paperwork) said he would check and put me on hold....14 mins later the phone was picked up and hung up. I'm definitely not going to call back as I don't want to become a PITA but man this sucks.
