Looking to move to Delaware in the future.
Have a suffolk pistol license.
Do we have to start from scratch applying for Delaware permit? What are we supposed to do with the pistols before, during and after the move while waiting for another license in another state? At some point I have to surrender the Suffolk license, making the switch confusing.

Anyone done this before?

You should do your own research, but from what I found online you do not need a permit in DE to own pistols and there is no registration.  You do need a permit to concealed carry.  From what I read they are officially "may issue", but in practice closer to "shall issue" for people with clean records.

Thanks and I did start my research. I thought the concealed carry was the same as carrying to the range and they don't refer to them as pistols, they call them deadly weapons. Different place, different terminology and rules. It is the transition that seems the problem, cannot take them through the city, probably ship ffl to ffl to hold them. Also cannot be a resident of both states at the same time, hence all these questions.

I will continue my research and also enlist the help of others who relocated from here to there. Thanks again.

Can't you transport them, unloaded and locked up separate from the ammo through the city?

I think it depends if I am a resident of Delaware at that time and having to surrender my license here or still ny suffolk resident. I cannot have the guns here at all if I have to surrender the license before the final "physical" move. The timing will be something for me to figure out when the time comes. I know I won't be reinventing the wheel here, many others have relocated to other states.

Oh.
This is my 2nd license here. I surrendered it years ago because of ringing in my ears, loud, and they made a big deal over the surrender, in person and they wanted a written letter explaining why, 2 of them interviewed me, etc.
Then a few years ago I got a new one since my hearing doesn't bother me as much anymore. But figured the same big deal when I surrender it again.
By mail sounds better, easier done deal.

But this is awesome! Delaware, the first state should be the opposite of new york!

Fort Miles (many buildings still stand in memory) at Cape Henlopen is a perfect example of why were are all free!

Why? Just follow the instructions if you want to carry, nothing needed to simply possess

Delaware gun laws also do not require any kind of permit for the possession of shotguns, rifles, or handguns. Individuals that are barred from possessing firearms are those that have a felony conviction. This is also extended to include misdemeanor offenses of a violent nature.

Moved to AZ. many years ago. When I settled in I sent my Suffolk license back and never heard from them. Just move and if they bitch tell to complain to  the Delaware LE. You will be in a state where they have no jurisdiction. And their administrative rules don't apply.

My brother inlaw move to Virginia cause the Gun laws are better then Maryland and Delaware.  Pack them in your car drive them to the freer state change your drivers license and mail back your PL to PLB with a note and a postcard.

Pack your guns down in one trip(last one and ammo the trip before so no chance of them finding ammo with your guns.

 

 

It messed up to have to say this but keep this part quite. I had a good friend get jammed up because his leftwing asshole neighbor found out he moved his guns before he move and the PLB call him and ordered him to present his guns for inspection. His father was a Suffolk Sheriff and found out who drop the dime.

 

This was about 10 years ago

When I moved to FL, I packed up my guns and left. After a few weeks, I called Nassau and told them I left.

 

Easy peasy
