    Yes they do want your refrences to be from the same county and prefer people that have known you for 5 or more years (at least in Jefferson county) If you don't know 4 in your residing county. Ask them if you may use people from the county you grew up in. I really think if your straightforward with them the will try and accomodate you within reason. Good luck.

    Call where you picked up the application and ask. Here in Ulster County, residency is not a requirement.

  6. It is in Orange County. I live right across the border in Ulster now, I signed as a ref for a buddy of mine who is still in Orange and they rejected me as a reference.

    WOW! Glad I live in Missouri. If I had to come up with 4 references I would have never gotten my CCP.

    MA, Away from the liberal loonies...
    I thought MA was a difficult place to get A LTC… Yikes… I wish that NY would allow/issue non resident license, but I’m not sure that will happen in my lifetime…Good luck. Let us know what happens.
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    In Jefferson County your references do not need to be county residents. I'm pretty sure they don't even have to be NY residents.
    I used someone from out of county as one of my references. Someone mentioned to me that because of Fort Drum, alot of applicants have references from out of the county, and thats why it isn't a requirement.

    Oh, so if there wasn't a military base there, they would require same county references? Wonderful regulations they have. Just shocking to me where all you have to be is a law abiding citizen over here.
