I currently hold a sportsman license in Nassau County and I am moving to Suffolk.  I mailed a letter to NCPD notifying them of the move, providing them with what they requested including the $5 transfer fee.  However, the Nassau County Pistol License Handbook clearly states that they will transfer the records and not the license.

 

Do I need to apply for a new license with Suffolk County?

 

 

 

Thanks,

dr

I can't speak for now, but I moved Nassau to Suffolk in 1998 and back to Nassau in 2003, and both departments did fairly straightforward issue of a new license based on the other county's records. No new fingerprints or investigation. They did both inspect my guns, but that's when they were both inspecting for renewals.

Yes, however, the County Pistol License officer/clerk may try and make you transfer the records over to the new address in that county.

Oh yeah, they will most likely try. Let them know what YOUR choice is and stick to it

The County will attempt to tell you have 10 business days to notify us of an address change and that you must pay a transfer fee. I have heard people having to make the change because they had nobody tell them they can keep it in the first applied county, simply make an amendment to the address only.

You would have the new address on the original pistol license. You could keep a Nassau County Pistol License with a Suffolk address listed on it. It's a state license. The county you first applied in could be used in any county except the City of NY.

So if that's the case and I buy a new gun do I go to Nassau or Suffolk pistol office? Doesn't make sense they'd let you have a Nassau permit if you're fully living in Suffolk. I remember a friend of mine having to turn in his Nassau permit and getting a Suffolk one but they didn't do a full on application, just 'transferred' it to Suffolk.

They may try but you don't have to. Only change of address. If you live in Western Suffolk, it's probably faster and easier using Nassau.

That's definitely good to know since I was looking at places along the Nassau border like Amityville. Makes it even more silly to have permits when you can have a system like that anyway.
