Hi,

There is a new handbook (I can't upload - the file is too large).

http://apps.suffolkc...tollicense2.htm

It would nice if they would list the changes from each revision.

Anyone know what changed?

Thanks

Sadly enough the "Yaphank shuffle" is alive and well. It really sucks when when you live in a county that' is worse than Nassau when it comes to excersising your constitutional rights :-(

I'm bringing in a pistol from out of state. Family member from out of town left me a pistol. Can I get the pistol shipped to an FFL first, or do I need to go to Yapank 1st. Then buy a plane ticket, then get the pistol in Florida over to the FFL, then come home 2 weeks later? How does this work ?

I purchased mine from out of state before i even had a license. Had it shipped to an FFL, they held it til my license arrived.

A bit difficult to follow your train of thought this late: The owner of the pustol (not you) needs to bring it to a local ffl who will ship it to a ny ffl. You are effectively purchasing a pistol from an out of state seller even though no monetary exchange occurs.

Don't think so. Nassau pistol license 5 year renewal fee, $200.00. Suffolk is $10.00

But the $10 for voter ID is unconstitutional due to it being a financial burden, what a joke.

Do I need to go to Yapank 1st, before the pistol arrives at the FFL? How long is the purchase doc good for ?

10 days I believe. Not sure if they still ask for the S/N of the pistol when you pick up the PD., it's been a few years since I bought anything new. You'll need the PD when you pick up the pistol from the FFL.

Trust me, I spent more than $200 over the 5 year period just in gasoline costs to shuffle back and forth between ffl and scpd. It doesn't help that scpd is "strategically" located in the middle of nowhere and at least half an hour ride for majority of us.

No, things have changed. Ffl first once the pistol arrives, get a receipt there, go to scpd to get a purchase document, then to ffl to pick up the pistol, then to scpd to add it to the license. They call it a "yaphank shuffle" for a reason :-) So for all practical purposes the expiration date of a purchase document is irrelevant as you are obtaining it after you buy a gun. I think it's 20 days though.

First, make sure that the handgun is NY legal. If yes, then, you have the Florida person go to a Florida FFL. Have that FFL ship it to a NY FFL, with whom you have already received an agreement to accept it. When the NY FFL receives it, s/he will give you a sales receipt, which you take to Yaphank, to obtain your purchase doc. Then, you go back to the FFL, pick it up, take it to Yaphank, where they will add it to your license. Than, you go home or to the range.

Anything in there allowing us to stop for gas on the way to the range?

I couldn't find any reference to gas stops, but it appears that you would be allowed to buy a water bottle at the gas station.

here's what the manual says:

Licensees are authorized to stop only for nonalcoholic refreshments and/or a meal on the way to and from their shooting destination. You are authorized to do this only during the period between leaving your residence and arriving at your shooting destination or during the return trip. You are not authorized to take your firearm to any establishment used primarily for alcohol consumption. You are not authorized to conduct any other non- target shooting or hunting activity while in possession of your handgun. In the event a licensee does choose to break for a refreshment and/or meal, they are responsible for the concealment and safeguarding of their firearms.
