I did read the other posts on here about the permit paperwork but I have some extra questions. My girlfriend and I are both turning in our pistol permits. She has a squeaky clean record. I have never been placed in a jail cell in my life or ever gotten into trouble with fights or anything. I did receive a DWAI in 2002, but I was never brought to jail or placed in handcuffs. I also received a Aggravated Unlicensed Operation in 2002 (license was suspended), but the cop let me drive me home.
Does this constitute as being arrested?? Would this ruin my chances of getting a permit?? I got my license reinstated in 2003 and the AUO was dropped. I also have some other questions:
1. Should i have my friends who have their pistol permit be my references??
2. I heard there is a form to fill out after you get your permit that lets you carry your handgun in 13 other states (these states recognize the NY pistol permit). Is this true?
3. Is it true that if you have bad credit, your permit will get denied?
I keep hearing so many different stories from people, I would rather get the info from the experts. Thanks in advance for the answers.
