    Unreal that it actually took them that long for you. What... are all the elves that have to widdle out the permit cards busy making toys this time of year? What a crock.

    On that note, it has been a couple weeks since all of my references have been contacted, time to start calling the ECPPD to find out when they get my file back...

  3. app process

    I've been told that once it gets to the judge it takes about 3 months for him/her to review the app and give final approval and then another 8-10 weeks to print out the actual permit.

    What's been everyones experience with the length of time needed for the judge to give final approval?

    I have not heard that long... but I HAVE heard of delays of 30-60 days where it sits at the police station before they get around to bringing them back downtown to the ECPPD office.... which is why I will start rattling cages at the 2-3 week mark from when they contacted my last reference.

    UPDATE: As of Dec. 15th, about 2.5 weeks after all of my references had been contacted, it still hasn't made it back down town.

  5. Update

    I called the Pistol Permit Office today and after a short conversation with the "oh so pleasant" man who answered the phone I was told that my permit had made it back from the FBI and is on to the next step. Here is a quick recap:
    - 5/15 submitted finished application downtown and sched. my fingerprints
    - permit sent to FBI in August
    - called 12/11 to find out permit was sent to local Cheektowaga PD for my reference checks (none contacted as of 12/11)

    I'll post again as my references are contacted and at 8 months in hopefully it won't be much longer.

  6. Sorry New Yorkers

    It saddens and angers me to see how NY tries to make it nearly impossible for law abiding citizens to arm themselves, while joe dirt is swapping his Ipod for an illegal gun on the street corner! But you inspire others through your efforts. Fight for your Rights! It's Ridiculous! Bureaucratic BS to discourage gun ownership.

    It makes you wonder what they were doing between May and August.

    I was talking to a very experienced FFL the other day. Based on what he said, your paperwork went to Cheektowaga PD. It will now go into a pile with a the others.
    They will only do X per what ever, Day Week Month, More like fillin work.
    When they get to yours and call or visit your references, the completed paper work will go into a pile.
    When the pile reaches X a the PD will drive them downtown. Could be once a week, once a month or once a quarter.
    Then the completed paperwork goes into another pile for the Judge.
    The Judge will do X per what ever, Day Week Month, More like fillin work.
    Once the Judge signs off the paperwork goes back to the Pistol Permit Office into another pile.
    Where once processed your letter will be sent.

    Remember you are not dealing with a company that has to show a profit and must have good customer service. You are dealing with government. "Government don need no stinking profit, they got taxes"


    My guess is you are half way through the process give or take 2 months.
    He told me that it is currently taking 12 months or more.

    If you call again and a man answers. Hang up and wait for one of the girls in the office. They are usually more pleasant to deal with.

    Hang in there.

  8. Talking Visit to the Pistol Permit Bureau

    I was at county hall today on business and decided to stop in the PPB to see if they'd received my application from my local PD.

    After waiting at the counter for a couple of minutes, my existence was acknowledged by one of the staff. As I was explaining the reason for my visit, one of the" ladies" cut me off mid sentence and curtly asked where I was in the process and my SS number. She then got up from her throne and sauntered over to the counter. As she did, I noticed she wasn't wearing any shoes and that the white athletic socks she was wearing had a larger hole in the front allowing her big toe to stick out. It took all the self control I could muster to stop myself from laughing hysterically in her face.

    She told me that my application had just arrived the day before ( my local PD had it 2 months ) and that I have another 3 months to go.

    I'm sooooo glad I live in Erie County, The Peoples Republic of New York. Ten more years and I'm outta here!

    Kinda like all the people in all the offices down there.

    So that puts at about 11 months then. Assuming she was right. Man that is just not right.

    Is this how it's gonna be with Obama Care?

  10. Angry

    The people who work at this office are HORRIBLE. I applied in March of 2009. It took them 9 months to call my references. Now they tell me 10 more weeks to get the permit card printed out. This is for a Hunting/Target only permit. Still no permit as of today.

    There was a stack of applications at least a foot high visible from the counter. How do I know they were applications? Because they all had the same purple colored Postal Money orders attached to them. These slobs are so lazy and they were all talking about some movie they saw and looking up jokes or something on the computer. Lots of cookie eating and snacks visible. Everyone moving like snails with a mouth full of food. Very rude and terse also.

    My favorite part? Getting fingerprinted by a sheriff who was almost BLIND. I'm not kidding you. He had to put his face right down until his nose was literally touching the paper when he filled it out. He was barking at me that I was fighting him while he was fingerprinting me and if they came out smeared I'd have to do it over and pay again. Everyone during this whole process treated me like a criminal. It sucked. I don't know why I am bothering to do this as I plan on leaving this rotten state in a few years. Oh well. I just wanted to try handgun hunting before I get too old. Deer hunting in NY is pretty darn good.

    One more thing: the guy at the gun shop said that I was a real FAST approval when it comes to getting a permit. Most can expect to wait close to 18 months these days.

    So far, I've been waiting SEVEN WEEKS for the actual permit to arrive once I was approved. I can't wait until our health care system is run like this.
