I would simply write a letter advising of your new address, asking them to update your information.... a court case a few years ago ordered that NYS licenses can be issued to non-residents...

If you wish to keep your NY License, do as advised above. If you don't wish to keep your license active, you CAN do nothing, which might bite you should you ever go back to NY and apply, or you can write them a letter stating that you and your handguns are permanently removed from NYS and you are cancelling your license, send the license back marked void if you so choose. NYS's power only extends to the borders of NYS, no matter what THEY think

I remember seeing a former New York resident that moved to Georgia and requested that his license which is lifetime to include his new address. The judge agreed to his request. I know every county is different, it is a state license.
Every county will have it's own policy for a part time non resident.

Once you are out be thankful and never return.

A counties' "policy" doesn't supersede state law, or Court decisions.

It was case law regarding Part Time residence. New York has given Non residents a pistol license when they have a business in the state. Only one county in upstate was issuing to residents from a Pennsylvania County if they owned property in the county.
We haven't seen a former Nassau or Suffolk resident chime in to say I got to keep my license when they move to a different state. The Part Time License requires a bit more to satisfy their requirements.

How do you present documentation of lawful disposition of the firearms when you only moved to a free state? With your guns.
Maybe just a picture of you with your guns at the range in your new state smiling from ear to ear?
That should be good enough proof.

If the state you're moving to requires a license to possess a handgun probably a license from that state. If it doesn't probably a reference to the section of the state law that says a license isn't required.

Your thinking too NY like. Most states don't require a license of any kind to purchase or open carry a handgun.

You don't need to do anything to "Prove" you and your property are now removed from NYS- The onus is on THEM to prove you did not. They will check up on you, it is easy enough

Was their any requirements from the county to prove you fulfilled the Part-Time requirement. I know their was a member from the gun club who moved to Florida and they wouldn't allow him to keep his license.

An acquaintance of mine moved out of NY, sold his home and bought another in a nearby state. He claims to be living with his daughter on LI and has kept his pistol permit. Any thoughts on this?

Proper documentation? These guys are delusional. You moved, and took YOUR PROPERTY with you. End of story.
Returning your license marked void is courtesy enough.
