I just looked at the pre -Bruen application I had saved and under sportsman it also said handguns may only be transported to/from the range or hunting location, however the handbook itself clarified that you can carry concealed on your person under a sportsman. It also mentioned stops for gas/food but that’s all moot now with the “sensitive locations “ craps. I don’t know if Suffolk has printed out a post Bruen handbook but with all the lawsuits going on it’s tough to keep up with the updates. I’m due to renew this June and still debating whether to go for fully carry (wasting 18 hours in a useless course) or keeping my sportsman which may be downgraded to a “dwelling”.
Good diligence on your part.. Based on reports here, there is no new "handbook," but I would ask when you go to renew in June if there is one. If there isn't, just ask the person you are dealing with, take note of their position in the pecking order, and we will add it to the pool of knowledge here.
As I said in my post above, and elsewhere here, if the dwelling license is what a sportsman used to be, or what it "formerly" was in the language of the application, then SCPD is issuing a 5 year carry license by another name and with no training. In our favor, but not exactly lawful.
To date, no one we know of has been issued a "Dwelling" license as everyone renewing their Sportsman is getting a Sportsman again. To the extent they ask, or even if they don't, everyone is able to do what they did before in terms of instructions given from Yaphank. This is equally true of the Sheriff's Office, although their licenses are no longer called Sportsman on renewal. It is given a "Premises" endorsement, but the type is "Carry." Again, same as before with the exception of the stops etc due to the restricted and sensitive locations. [Note: there is a lone exception of a member here whose instructions from the Sheriff very early on (he was one of the first to receive the new "Premises" licenses), implied it could not be used hunting without the carry endorsement. However, that would run contrary to the Conservation Law, those who as followed-up with hunting specific questions, and instructions given to others].
