    BimmerJustin Why would you deny yourself something you want?

    I was reading on the county clerk website (and have since emailed them), and it says simply to pick up an application from the office and schedule an appointment to submit it.

    I was always under the impression that you had to buy a gun, and keep it on hold at the dealer until your application was approved and that gun was added directly to the permit. Is it possible that I can apply for the permit without being in the process of purchasing.

    The reason I asked is because given the turnaround time for obtaining a permit, I want to submit it asap. But I probably will not purchase a gun for a couple months.

    You should be able to do the app w/o having a gun on hold. After getting the permit when your ready to get the gun you should be able to go down to the PD and get the permit amended with the new gun on it.

    Of course NY is fucked and every county has different rules so I could be wrong about yours.
