I am new to New York as of a couple weeks ago and I am interested in getting an unrestricted permit to carry. I am currently living in Madison county but will be moving to Wayne in November. I have researched it a little but I was hoping you could clarify some things for me.
I have a wife and a son and another on the way. I am worried about being denied an unrestricted permit. My reasons are hunting/target shooting/personal protection. Even though I shouldn't be, I'm worried that "defending my family" wont be enough. What are your opinions. If I have to I could start to carry around a lot of money (how ever much that is). But besides carrying money and valuable merchandise, is there anything else? Any tips would be greatly appreciated (including which county I should apply in).
Second, if I get a permit in Wayne/Madison, is it usable in any county (besides NYC of course)?
Third, I could use a recommendation of a good place to buy a Colt/Kimber/Glock/XD (Haven't decided yet).
Thanks for any info you all can give me. Feel free to give any advice not asked for as well, it's always welcome.
