Hi everyone, This is my first post since most of the time i was lurking around on here for awhile anyway i was thinking to apply for pistol permit but the real problem is i moved from East Suffolk to West Suffolk less than a year ago so i don't know if i can use references from East area since there's 2 different Pistol permit office in both area.. Also i noticed i can't even use my own relatives but is there any way to use atleast one of them since all of my friends are Anti-gun or Doesn't Believe in Pistols Which is absolutely ridiculous.

You can use references from anywhere in NYS. They just prefer that your references be Suffolk County residents.

Amazing how many applicants are deterred to one degree or another by the references thing.

Thinking back to when I was a young man working 7-day weeks and not having many friends (exactly the same as now, come to think of it) I cannot remember if I had four references that I would want to ask to sign on a handgun permit. I always kept those things to myself, and still do as much as possible.

Your friends may surprise you. When I was filling out my application last November, I needed 4 references just like you. Most of my friends are pretty liberal, but I picked four who know me well and trust me. All four filled them out with no problems. Turns out, one already had his license, which I didn't know about, and one applied right after I had him fill out my reference form.
Just like LIAMMO, gun owners tend to keep those things to themselves.

the references views on guns isn't the issue , it is whether or not they (are used as a character) reference for you as to whether or not YOU are responsible to own and handle a firearm safely. And if they are friends they will not let their political agenda interfere with you getting a lic.

If you have already dropped off you're permit application and get into an accident (a minor fender bender) and the police were called are you supposed to report this to them  or tell them at the interview or what???

Where is it written you need to report a car accident on a pistol license application?  Were you arrested?

No. No need to report it, unless it involved an arrest or a DUI/DWI, on your part.

OK ..Thanks...Since I don't have access to the application, I didn't remember  if there were any questions about traffic accidents.

I just sent my application in.  I only used Suffolk Residents because that is what the application said.  I don't think they care where in Suffolk.  I live in the Huntington area.  I used one from there, one from St. James, one from Islip and one from Medford.
