In my experience, the best thing you can do is approach the interview with complete honesty. Admit to everything. Don't try to pass blame or minimize your past actions. Tell the investigator you did some stupid things and deeply regret them and wish you could undo these things. You've matured and understand the errors of your past. Be humble... be Opey Taylor from Mayberry. You may get by with a restricted permit. DO NOT discuss violence, self defense or protection in the interview. Be careful how you answer every question. Give the impression that you are not concerned about any of these things, that you want the permit purely for sporting purposes.

I wanted to update it to unrestricted but would exept what they are calling a “sportsman”. My permit now states “dwelling, employment and sportsman”. I wanted to use my hand gun on my ATV and hiking and other activity’s. I had to sign a statement saying that I could NOT carry concealed “TO AND FROM”. I could carry “while actively engaged” in such activity’s. In order for me to go to and from and transport the weapon it must be in a compartment, unloaded, locked and not with the ammo. It also can not assessable to the driver or passenger. The compartment must also be other than the glove box or console. I am fine with Oswego County restricting my permit as stated. I think that it is wildly inappropriate to restrict carrying in my vehicle going to and from activity’s. There is no better prize than a hand gun to those that engage in crime. Restricting me more while in and out of my vehicle leaves my weapon open for theft and use agents me at any time before I engage in activity’s. If you also think this is wildly inappropriate please wright.

What and where are you a competition shooter? I don't think you can shoot in competition in New York unless you are a non-resident with an out of state permit or a resident with a NYS permit.
