Thread: Erie County, NY Pistol Permit Application Process

  1. waiting again

    My wife and I both bought our pistols and went down town to get them on our permits. The approvals and receipts were turned in at the permit office with a $20 per person fee. Our pictures were taken and were told our permanent permits will show up in the mail in 7 to 8 weeks. At that time we can go pick up our pistols. We are waiting again. I will let you know.....

    From what i have seen it takes from 6 months to 1 year in Erie County to get a Restricted Permit. Its VERY rare for anyone to get an unrestricted permit on their 1st application. You can apply for several types of permits, Target, Target & hunting, Business , Home only or unrestricted. Typically after 5 year of permit holding you can apply to have your restrictions removed if you have a good reason, and self defense in not a good reason in Erie county. They do not have to issue a permit and can revoke it at any time. We have known people with unrestricted permits who have went to the permit office to add a new gun and had their permits restricted on the spot. They did finally upgrade the old cheap paper permits to a plastic one for an additional $21, it well worth it. One closing note, make sure you follow the directions to a T, like useing only black ink, references in your town if required, no County Sherifs for ref etc. Good luck.

  4. Hello I have a valid NYS Pistol Permit for Erie County
    I have been approached by a relative to take two pistols that were registered to my uncle who passed in March 2008
    They have been keeping them both in a safe and no one there has any use for them
    I am interested in taking them on but wonder what do I need to do to legally transfer/carry them on my current permit?
    My Uncle's permit was issued in Ontario County NY
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    I know the transfer can be done but I am not sure of the process. You may need a notarized letter from the current owner with serial nos etc stating they are transferring the ownership to you. They will also need a letter from you to the county of original issue so they can remove the guns from the deceased persons permit.

    You should call downtown to the Eric county Permit office and get the exact procedure, so you dont get screwed on some techanical mistake. I dont think its that big of a deal if you follow their instructions. Good Luck!

    You can try to look it up on line or take it to a shop you trust after you get it on your paper. Some of the shop s may try to low ball you around here. Good Luck.

    For many years the upstate counties pistol permits were unrestricted and lifetime.It seems that more are going the same route like Nasau & Suffolk county with restrictions.
