When I first got my license 30 years ago it said f class, concealed carry and had target/hunting stamped on it.Funny, when I first applied, in Suffolk, the Sportsman license was worded as a “Full Carry”, but with the county level administrative “downgrade” for carry to/from range only, but the below “Sportsman” classification sounds more it was issued as a “Premise” license, with a carry to/from range “upgrade”. Copied from Application Instructions. I’m telling you, they will require a complete re application if we want the upgrade to full carry, saying we originally were issue a premise license (by the county). It says “transported”, not carried ?? WTF ? This is exactly what NYC did.
(1) SPORTSMAN – (Premise/Dwelling, Target and Hunting) – A Sportsman endorsement entitles a licensee to possess a firearm within his/her home for the purpose of home protection, at a designated firing range for the purpose of target shooting, and in the field while actively engaged in lawful hunting. Firearms may only be transported between your residence and an authorized target shooting range and/or a legal hunting area in New York State. For the purpose of hunting, you are reminded that you must also possess a valid New York State hunting license and comply with DEC hunting regulations.
