At the moment I don't have pistol permit but it's in process. I'll be looking to purchase a pistol as soon as issued. I'm a veteran, and can purchase from military exchanges and their pricing looks decent. I live in Nassau county. An Exchange purchase would look like this: Buy from website and have shipped to local store (FFL), pick-up in person from there.... but closest is in Brooklyn- so what obstacles am I looking at here when Nassau resident buys a firearm on a federal military base, in New York City- and brings it home?
