    I had one reference of mine tell me about his conversation with the detective who called him. She just asked what he thought of me and what he thought my reason for wanting a handgun was. (In NY a carry permit is required just to buy a handgun).

    Fortunately we don't need them here. Welcome to the forum.

    Neither were mine or any of my friends'. It's sort of like a job reference. Who would provide a reference that would say something bad about them?

    All my references were called. Wanted to know about my drinking habits, any aggressive behavior, relationship with my wife, drug use and more that I've forgotten about.
    They also called my wife and asked her even more. Did she know I was getting a permit? How did she feel about it? Was I ever physically abusive to her?
    Then they called me. What was my reason for getting a handgun? How long have I hunted? How do I secure my firearms? Pretty thorough, perhaps excessively so. It took 10 months to get my permit. I live in upstate NY.

    Holy smokes! That wasn't a ref check, it was a proctology exam. Is Monroe county difficult overall?

    C'mon, who could hassle someone with a groundhog for an avatar.
