PLB in both Suffolk and Nassau need to start instituting new ways to get these Bravo Sierra purchase docs.
1) It's a antiquated system to begin with
2) They can make it vaild for longer periods- sugg 1yr from date of issuance or until your license is valid(whichever occurs first)
3) MY suggestion: make it accessible on-line with our license # and a password(set by License holder upon setting up themselves w/in the 'NEW' system or @ PLB HQ - pay for doc via CC or e-check,whatever they want to collect) Print-out doc and go. I would even pay more for the e-doc just to save fuel and time going back and fourth. One trip less hassle - there has to be a better way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
~now more than ever its tough to make it out to Yaphank to pick one up!!!! just to use and turn around and go back (after purchase, private or store sale) for PLB inspection and add to permit. This Bravo Sierra double trip & time is really beginning to be my biggest pet-peev. Any other suggestions????

Nassau Purchase doc is good for the calender year... I always buy one when I add a gun. Saves a double trip. Its not right what they have you guys in Suffolk doing.

Edit: come to think of it, none of its right

but even in Nassau you still have to p/u one in person (you know) thats still a trip(unless your killing two birds a inspection for one and p/u a doc @ same time) - still Horshe Crap

It is, but for $10 it saves a trip and I'd spend that in gas getting there. The whole system is flawed.

Gun registration = gun control and taxation

Be thankful you guys can pick up a gun same day. I have to drop off the paperwork and wait for a judge to sign it and mail it back to me. I've waited up to 8 weeks. :-/

The only upside is they never see the guns or want them brought in for inspection.

You are on the right track.

Your thoughts are consistent with the thinking behind, and suggestions offered in, this thread:

In my County upstate, the dealer fax's over the bill of sale, the clerk prints out the new license. Then you have the option of picking up your new license or paying by CC over the phone and having your new license mailed to you.

Once you have your new license, simply stop back at the dealer and pick up your gun.

Face to face private transactions are still done the old fashioned way.

I don't think making it "easy" is their priority- it seems like they have a mandate to do exactly the opposite. I think somebody somewhere has interpreted "license" as "restrict or eliminate". Imagine driving your car and renewing your license and being told unless you could document the need to drive after dark you were going to be downgraded to a junior license?

They won't even give you an application where I live. Presumably because they can eliminate you from eligibility if you don't have an internet connection. What other reason could there be? 5 cents of the taxpayers' money is too much to provide the form? Agan, imnagine you were at DMV and they told you to go home and download your registration form from the internet and come back another day because "we don't give out forms"? Most would consider that absurd.

You guys are all commited gun owners who arn't easily put off. The County pistol people know you are out there BUT....
They know that a substantial number of folks whose willingness to purchase a handgun is only casual, will give up in the face of the expense, time waste, invasions of privacy, redundant paperwork, patronizing attitudes, red tape, ambiguous fine print, and draconian sanctions that befall an innocent mistake.

The goal is to quash gun ownership to whatever degree they can get away with.
Time to push back folks. Get Romney elected, keep the pro gun majority in the Supreme court and we'll see a lot of this nonsense disappear through the courts.

Yup. Easy as can be. When I had my nassau license, I used to buy 4 in a shot. If I purchased that many guns in the year I would buy more when I got down to 1. For $10 a shot, I never had to make more than 1 trip to the licensing dept.

I hear what you are saying, but if Romney is elected, do you think the number of gun owners is going to increase exponentially like in the last election? All of the panic buying from people convinced the guy from Chicago was gonna be a Bloomberg gave manufacturers the best years (maybe ever?) and none of the Obama anti-gun agenda really manifested itself in any meaningful way. Add to that if Obama is reeleced I anticipate another entire round of panic buying on the fear that he will use his second term to outlaw guns- which, quite frankly, I don't see happening.

I think if Romney is elected the panic buying will cease, the ammo hoarding will cease, and the good news is a case of .223 will probably go back to the 250 bucks or so it SHOULD be. All of the other non 2A issues, well that's another thing entirely.

That poster about Obama being "gun salesman of the year", well, there is a lot of truth to that. I'm not voting for Obama, but if I were a gun manufacturer I might be.

The Democrat platform out now clearly includes an assault weapon ban worse than the first, end of person to person sales and other unstated "reasonable restrictions". Obama already uses the ATF for nefarious purposes and already apointed two NY City leftist, anti gun, women lawyers to the Supreme Court. He'll look for more legacy legislation in a 2nd term and if you think it won't include guns, just look at his anti gun rhetoric and record while he was a community organizer and senator. But the Supreme court is something no gunowner should be taking a chance on... its too long term and too irreversable.

Incognito - I never saw that thread (thanks)
Grifhunter- I love that signature line!!!!!! One of my biggest pet peeves
Members all I'm saying is that with the plastic licenses(many of us remeber our GREEN CARDS) the system is in place, like DMV, allow us vaild current license holders to print out docs on-line(pay) go ONCE to PLB w/firearm & paperwork to update license.
~Just looking for small concession - not to revamp process. Like many said its all B>S> would love to have Carte Blanche once your licensed your good to go - HAVE A NICE DAY!
