Im planning on moving out of nyc (out of state) within the next year & 1/2. I currently have a nyc premise permit. I'm trying to preplan a little because I have no idea about the process. From what I can figure out so far...

Bring my handguns to a ffl, they store/secure them. They give me some kind of receipt that I bring to 1PP, where I cancel my overpriced permit.

I move my family out of this sinking cesspool

When I have gotten to my new gun friendly, red, dream home, I call the ffl in ny & have them ship to ffl where I moved to.

Enjoy my freedom.

Is that even remotely close? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Destination state (fl) does not require a permit to own, just to conceal carry. Im just assuming nypd makes a big deal out of taking my guns out of state & want to make it as difficult as possible. Hoping someone went through this & guide me in best direction. I was going to call down to 1pp, but didnt feel like being on hold for an eternity at that moment.

A few who moved to a gun friendly state that doesn't require pistols to be registered are simply transported down unloaded and secured in a locked gun case. You may return the pistol license by certified mail to 1PP and let them know you no longer live in New York and the firearms are out of the state.

Didn't NYC recently modify their rules just enough to avoid a SCOTUS showdown, to the effect that you can legally take your handguns outside of NYC?
Yes, they allow us to go outside of city limits for shooting competitions, ranges, etc.

Interesting, seems to easy & too good to be true. Haha. What if we get a moving company & fly down? Not even sure what the plan is yet, just trying to cover every angle.

Since you're going to FL and don't need a license to possess just take them with you unload in the trunk of your car. When you get their mail your license back to pistol licensing in NYC.

My educated guess is a moving company cannot be in possession of your handguns. Either you take them or they have to be shipped by an FFL to an FFL in FL.

That makes sense. Thanks.

My friend just moved to Florida last month. Packed his firearms safely in his vehicle. Locked containers.
Drove straight through to the sunshine state. Wrote a letter, along with the nyc license. Sent certified mail, return receipt.
Done deal.

Since they changed some of the laws regarding transporting out of city limits, There shouldn't be any problems going through different states, as long as they are locked in cases, separate from ammo? This is way easier than the ffl route.

If going to Florida get a non resident FL permit now and have it changed when you get a residence in Srtate.

Easy to get.

Thats a great idea. Is a FL non resident permit attainable with a nyc premise permit? I never looked into, just assumed premise permit wouldn't qualify.

This is my understanding of this. Not legal advice in any way, shape, or form.
