I picked up my permit today. I wanted to post my experience to encourage others and share information.

5/4 Dropped off application, given date of 5/31 for fingerprints.
5/31 Fingerprints, photo, application review, paid fees $87 for fingerprints $200 for 5 year permit.
6/14 checks cashed.
8/3 email notification of approval.

Kind of funny that I was approved the day after my birthday, a nice belated birthday gift :).
I was at the counter picking it up an hour and twenty minutes after I received the email :)

Now to finalize my first purchase (new thread on that coming).

Congrats!

If only Suffolk County would get with the program  :slow

Mailed application December 28, check gets cashed January 10, I finally get assigned an investigator between early June and late July (called 3 times in those 6 months for an update) At this pace I won't have my permit until sometime in 2018, I guess I'll be making some trips out of state to "touch" some handguns.

Have you decided on your first purchase? 

Safe Shooting  :triniti

Congrats. I remember the excitement. Keep in mind that the pistol licensing section is closed on the weekends so you better purchase tomorrow or it'll be a LONG weekend.  :fie

What's funny is we used to say this about Nassau. Nassau was taking about a year and Suffolk was a few months. Now it's the other way around

 

Congrats!

We are brainwashed little sheep of NY, which is part of the USSA. We celebrate and congratulate for what takes 15 minutes, AND SHOULD BE THE SAME HERE, in the free part of this nation. I am the !@@ outta here when I retire, heading to "Live Free or Die" status of New Hampshire.

That's great...I'm a week in after doing my finger prints. It does suck that all I can do is look, but not touch while I'm waiting.

Congratulations. Nice to hear the process went quickly. As I like to do now, I urge as many people as I can to get their license.. Strength in numbers.

I agree, reading about the process here encouraged me to do it. Now I hope others also go for it. The 92 days it took me was not to bad (although there is plenty of room for improvement).

Go ahead, print out the forms now, drop them off next week and come the holidays I bet our Christmas lists will have a few things in common.

BTW: I am practicing what I preach. I just printed the application for my wife :). She is on board and will join our ranks in a few months.

Going on 36 years that I have my license. Took 6 weeks back then. Lol. My wife also has her license for the past 20 or so years.
Glad to hear your wife will be getting hers also. The more common place it becomes the better.

Congratulations...LOL ( Although there's plenty of room for improvement)  A 3 month wait is like... in record time...

I'm going on 10 months with no word.....and I'm not alone...

I just put my application in today 8/22, they gave me a fingerprint appointment on 9/12. Can't believe how short of time it is considering people waited more than 6 months.. VERY happy haha. We'll see what happens after the fingering printing. I'm in Nassau as well.

Good luck. Be grateful you don't live in Suffolk County.

Funny, it wasn't that long ago, that's what we in Suffolk said to Nassau applicants... But then, we can still be a little grateful to be in Suffolk, Nassau Licensees get raped on the fees!.

$200 for a 5 year pistol license as opposed to $10 in Suffolk, and their amendments cost $10 instead of $5.

Back in 1981, it took me no more than 4 weeks total in Nassau County. I happened to know a police officer who worked in the PLB who pushed the papers through the system.

 

I'm moving to Georgia next month where things are real simple. Go to gun shop, look at what you like, handle it and in some shops you can shoot the model before purchase. If you like the pistol, you take out your drivers license, they run a 4473, hand over your credit card to pay and you are on your way. No BS .....

That's how it should be nationwide
