Thread: Erie County......still waiting.

  1. Erie County......still waiting.

    I got my permit letter and bought my pistol. Went down and got my photo taken and thumb print, gave them the reciept for the pistol, etc. That was almost NINE weeks ago. Still no permit. It will be one year next month since I turned in my application at the pistol permit office. This is total BS. All this for a hunting / target permit.

    Total cost is getting pretty high. $50 for safety course, $110 for application fee, $20 to turn in my paperwork, Finegrprint fee, parking downtown in Buffalo, time off from work to do this during business hours, postage, photograph costs, etc.

    I can't wait until health care is run like this.

  3. It's a lifetime permit, it's a major plus.Nassau, Suffolk, Westcheste,r NYC require a renewal every 3-5 years with a large fee to boot.

  4. I feel like I've been waiting a lifetime to get my permit. Don't give them any ideas on renewal fees. It's coming here soon, I'm sure of it. Hopefully I'll be relocated out of state by then.

    It is already being kicked around by legislators. Unfortunately, there is a huge back log in many if not all counties with issuing pistol permits. While it is aggravating, it is a lifetime permit. Be patient and it will come as long as a judge issues you a permit. The judge's docket includes actual criminal cases and pistol permits. Rightly so, criminal cases take priority. Sooner or later, your permit will come if you are qualified.

    Yes, these poor public servants work so hard! If you saw what I saw at the pistol permit office, you'd know these delays are by design. These governemnt slugs were all walking around eating cookies and looking up jokes on the internet while there was a line of people waiting. They already approved my permit. I'm waiting for a card to be printed out. It's funny how other states can issue a permit in just a few weeks while this state, with its bloated government, can't seem to issue one in less than a YEAR. Plus the fact that I was treated like a criminal by everyone in government during this whole application process.

    Wait until health care is run like this!

    I would not hesitate to report that type of taxpayers waste.

  8. Another week goes by........still no permit. Week #10 since it was approved and I bought my pistol. Still no permit and my brand new pistol sits at the gun shop.

    WTF! the permit was approved but deny giving it to you after 10 weeks.Something is odd,once the judge approves your permit you get your pistol permit and a purchase document for your new gun.Erie county does it way different from other counties.I would call to find out, something happened.

    I got my "Congratulations! You have been approved for a NY Pistol Permit" letter TEN WEEKS AGO. I went to the gun store with the letter, bought the gun, and took the receipt downtown to the pistol permit office. They took my photo and thumbprint plus another $20 fee and said "you'll get your permit in another two months". The clerk was scowling at me the whole time and everyone treated me like a criminal during this whole procedure.

    The guy at the gun shop told me this was common in Erie county. He also said that if I complain about the delay, the worthless government slugs will remove my permit from the pile and bury it for another few months as punishment. I don't know if this is true but that's what he told me. He also told me that my permit was approved real fast! Most are waiting well over a year just to get the stupid letter.

    Week #10 and still no permit as of today. Week #11 starts Monday. Next month will be one year since I submitted my paperwork.

    13 months here... still don't even have a letter, and as far as I know it JUST made it downtown, but I am not 100% sure on that. They contacted my references months ago, but last time I called ECPP, it was not there yet... and after the attitude I got from the lady there, I told her exactly where she could shove it, so I am not hot on calling back again. Erie county is such a waste of oxygen...
