That is wrong NYS permits are honored in 23 states go to us carry and click on map.
Gary, I would further research which states are pro constitutional carry. As we all know, New York does NOT recognize any state pistol permit which is not a disqualifying factor to prevent a valid NY pistol license holder from carrying in another state with lax gun laws.
As stated above, there are actually a number of States that honor NYS licenses. Unclear if they would honor a "sportsmans" restricted license.
Those of you, who have been around, for awhile, know that, when I goof, I don't do it small. I do it BIG. Prime example.
