Hey guys, since we don’t have one yet I figured I’d start a 2020 timeline for the pistol license. Dropped off my application in April waiting patiently for the call for an interview. Anyone else apply this year so far?

They require a personal check or money order of $10 when you hand in the applicant questionnaire.

There should be some reasonable limits on the fees they are allowed to charge for applications.  Suffolk is so much more reasonable than Nassau.  So much so, you would think they were in different parts of the country.

I agree, however I’m more personally concerned about this entire license process. It moves way to slow and it seems there is no accountability whatsoever held by SCPD in processing applications nor can you even track the status.

True.  I'm glad I got mine a long long time ago (in Nassau).  I really don't know how they get away with the process as it is.  I get they really want to discourage people and make it hard, but it's seriously B.S. the way they do it.  I wonder if it's this bad in upstate counties?

I handed mine in back in March. Still haven’t heard anything. I do know that they close for some time due to covid. Not sure how badly that will affect our time frame

Just so you guys know. I Just got back from my interview everything seemed to go smooth. He went over the application took pictures and finger prints made copy’s of the items they asked me to bring. Then went over what else is needed to complete the process. Which is a signature from all four of your references. And 2 of them need to sign and notarize character reference form. He also said I should hear back in the next 2 to 3 months.


He did go on to say I got my application in just in time. (First week of March) Since as of the last few months they been getting over 500 applications per month. Yikes.

I finally submitted mine in person on July 10th. The guy told me about 11 months, which is better than the 2 years I was told last year when I called up. (Suffolk County)
