Thread: Question about application in Dutchess County

  1. Question about application in Dutchess County

    well,This is my first post on here. I would like to be able to get an permit For target, and home defense. What should i put in the box. I have read that you should word it a certain way on the application. Is this the case? Any help would be great.

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Just put 'for all lawful purposes." You would also check the concealed carry box, not the premise box.

  4. If the weapon is left in the house except for going to the range. I would need to check the concealed carry box. I am just getting into this. But is concealed carry the same as a full carry? I'm a little confused

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Dutchess County does not issue restricted permits. All permits are labeled "Full Carry." One of the few counties left in NY that is still "shall issue." You will either get a permit, or you won't. As long as you don't have any convictions, you explain any and all arrests, you background check is clean, and your references check out (if they even get contacted - mine were not but my wife's were) - you should be good to go. There is quite a wait though. It took six months for me, but that was before Obama got elected and everyone in the county rushed in to apply.

    A little clarification - don't confuse a restricted permit (hunting and target only), with a premises permit. On your Dutchess app, you need to check the concealed carry box unless you want a premises only permit (usually for business owners).

    From the last I heard, you need to contact the Sheriff's Office to pick up the application. You will then make an appointment to be fingerprinted. The total process will take anywhere from 3-6 months, but it could take longer.

    You want a full carry permit. This is the same as concealed carry. Even if you do not intend to carry your firearm this is the type of permit you want.

    A "restricted" permit is actually a concealed carry permit where the issuing judge placed administrative restrictions that prevent you from carrying your firearm for self defense.

  8. Thanks for all the info, I picked up the app on friday. I am only interested in home defense and target. I did not know until now that dutchess does it different. Just have to get the references together, and make the appointment. I plan on taking the basic pistol course. Is there any other courses that dutchess will have me take? Thanks again for all the help!!

    Keep in mind that any "restrictions" are administrative only. If you carry in conflict with a restriction you will most likely lose your permit BUT it has no legal consequenses. NY only issues 2 permits, 1 for NYC and 1 for everywhere else and they are full carry. Not included are the premise only permits.

    Dutchess County actually does not require a training class. I am offering a NRA Basic Pistol class coming up in the beginning of January if you are interested. Also, depending on where you are in Dutchess County, there is a good range right in Poughkeepsie.

  11. I am definitely interested in the basic pistol safety course. I grew up shooting rifles and shotguns. But I am very new to handguns. I live in Pleasant Valley right next store to Poughkeepsie.
