    Good everywhere but a public parade? Better check those laws.

So don't even try to compare North Carolina with New York. It's not even close !
    No sir. OK to carry in a restaurant or bar. We aren't limited to and from a range. 24 X 7, everywhere but a school.

    I didn't know about the funeral thing. Isn't the person already dead?

    LOL, I'm from MA dude! So ya the war is VERY over and VA is very aware they lost it. Also, my area has more Northeast transplants than natives (with NY'ers being the majority) Being from MA I'm very aware of terrible gun laws when I see them. But at least MA doesn't take over a year to issue a permit. They have 40 days by law, which while many depts go over...not by THAT much plus many jurisdictions are Shall Issue by practice, yes I'm aware there are some decent counties for gun owners in NY but those seem to be few and far between. Your problem is you HAVE your permit, and I think you forget what hell it is for MANY in your state to get an unrestricted one. I'm from Boston, the WORST place in MA to be from! People on the other side of the state apply, and go back in a few weeks and pick up their permit, having no clue the hell some parts of the state go through. I think that's your situation. Cops can see your criminal history from their cruiser on a traffic stop, NICS can approve a sale in 30 seconds, so what are they REALLY looking into for over a year? Sure there are some small rinky dink counties out there, but how many people live their? There can only be so much of a back log.

    The long wait is due to understaffing and a massive number of new permits. So many people are getting permits that you need to make an appointment to get fingerprinted in a of of areas. And they're booked months out. The state dept. of mental health was severely understaffed and background checks had nearly grinded to a halt for quite some time. There isn't some grand conspiracy to delay permit applications. It's merely like everything else in NYS government... slow. There are close to 1 million CCW permits in upstate NY (in a population of 11 million people), not counting NYC.
    .
    Many counties, not just in the sticks, issue only unrestricted permits. In fact, in Orange, Dutchess, Ulster counties, all within an hour of NYC, unrestricted permits are the norm.

  7. FINALLY got my letter. Nearly 18 months from start to finish. Applied for unrestricted, got target/hunting...no surprise there. I'm in Amherst.

  8. Congrats, glad you finally received your permit.

    Im currently at 13 months and still no word. I had my interview and references were contacted back in march, nearly 6 months ago. Paitence is key I guess. My buddy's wife (Niagara County), put her permit in about 4 months after I did, and received her Unrestricted, Full Carry 4 months after that, making her total process from start to end atleast 8 months faster than mine (if i got my permit today). Sad part is, she got unrestricted, I will get restrictions and have to wait 5 years to apply for my upgrade. Bummer!

    I had the same experience when I called last month. The lady on the phone referanced the last time I called and told
    me it is out on the judges desk. Then she got very rude and said " a couple more months like I told you before" the last time I called was 2 months ago, I thought a couple of months means 2 months but I guess not. So yes they keep track of when we call for what reason I do not know,but 15 months is way to long to wait in my book.

  11. Just got back from Erie County PPO, 9:30 am this morning. Hard to believe, but there was no one in the office waiting. Went down being my 15th month after submission. Sat down with Will, always pleasant to me. Looked up my status and told me that I had been OK'd by the Judge and that it was in the pile, he showed me, waiting to be mailed out. There was maybe 100 applications waiting to be mailed. He said that his secretary was working on them daily and that I would be receiving it shortly. Looks like I'm on the last leg of the process, lets see how long it takes for mailing.
