so now that I possess a NYC Handgun license, I am thinking of going for my rifle/shotgun permit. My question is besides filling the app and getting the same type of notarized forms/documents again (e.g. safe guard, Affidavit of Co-Habitant, proof of address, etc) ,  Is there an interview involved,  are they going to ask for character references letters? How long is the wait time before receiving notice of approval? Is there a wait time for purchasing long guns like there is with pistols (every 3 mths with purchase document)? Thanks!

Keep your reciept for the cost to obtain your license (just incase you can get a 'refund') / SAF lawsuit

okay, back on topic.

Just fill out all the paper work ( notarized forms/documents ) and pay and you will get it in 3 months tops and you can have it without having to buy a rifle or shot gun.

No interview...

Wow, from what I remember getting mine in '91 when I lived in Brooklyn, pretty much went down there, filled out the paperwork, and walked out with it the same day.  Then again, this was before NICS and any of that stuff.  I just needed to go down there with a hunter education certificate and a hunting license (I was a Resident Alien at the time).

Pretty much. And if you have a question about a rifle or shotgun...have aspirin on hand, believe me!

I believe there is still a limitation of one rifle every three months. You will get several purchase documents but can't use them all at once.

The wait is around 11 weeks. You can purchase one firearm every 90 days. That includes handgun and rifle, but I don't think rifle section talks to pistol section so theoretically you can still purchase a rifle even if you just purchased handgun.
