  1. Pistol Permits
    I have an old paper pistol permit issued in Albany County. It is looking fairly ragged but still fully legible and I would like to get it upgraded to the new plastic permit. What is the procedure, cost, and timeline? I obviously will bring in the old permit, but specifically: Do I need to...

  3. Handguns
    At some point I lost the rear sight blade off of a Bersa Thunder .380. It doesn't have solid sights, but instead a blade that's held in place by a spring and a screw. How or where I lost it.. I have no idea but I do (or did anyway) occasionally carry the gun so I'm glad I noticed it before I...
  4. Pistol Permits
    Does anyone know what happens when you have more pistols than fit on the back of your permit. Do they issue 2 ID's with the different pistol details or an amendment type card? Thanks, D
  5. Pistol Permits
    So when you get a new pistol do you just sharpie the new one on the back or do I have to get another piece of plastic? I miss my paper permit :( When I picked up my last pistol from Zacks I didn't even get the slip back, handed them the paperwork and picked up the gun after the judge approved...
  6. Pistol Permits
    Was in the County Clerk's office today and saw them cranking out paper permits. Clerk did NOT look in the mood for small talk, so I didn't bother asking when they were switching over to plastic. Anyone have any idea when (or if) they might switch over?

  8. Pistol Permits
    I just got my appointment to get mine. $10. I hear they are going fast (before they will run out and have to get more.) I will get more information on the prices and processes, but if you want a plastic one get your appointment now. Mine is on the 13th. This is good as my paper one, only a...
  9. Preparedness
    I found a couple of these plastic tubes at a flea market and I was wondering what they were used for. They look like they might be waterproof, so at $.50 each, I picked them up with the idea that I might use them in my BoB. Anyone know what they were used for previously and do you know if...
  10. Ammunition and Reloading
    Does any of our reloaders (hopefully near Rochester) have 2 or 3 empty plastic bullet boxes that they haven't gotten around to throwing out yet? Please PM if you can help me out. Thanks in advance.
  11. Pistol Permits
    Hey all, I went firearm shopping this past weekend!!! :) I heard the guy behind the counter of Jackson Guns and Ammo say that he had a customer last week that was running his mouth in regards to getting one of the first Monroe County plastic pistol permits. Has anyone heard if they are in the...
  12. Pistol Permits
    When my permit was changed from paper to plastic the last time I added a gun my original permit issue date was changed to the date the plastic was issued. When I pointed it out I was told "next time you add or drop a gun remind us and we'll fix it". So 5 yrs later(2/21) I go up to add the gun...
  13. Off-Topic
    My wheelbarrow finally bit the dust. I filled it with firewood and promptly broke the handles off when I tried to move it. So I need a new one. I like the idea of the ones with two wheels for the anti-tip value. The tub is plastic though so my concern is that it will be brittle in the winter...
  14. Pistol Permits
    Looks like Yates will be getting the plastic permit cards soon. Spoke to the clerk today and she said they will be issuing them soon. They are still working out pricing but she thinks it's going to be $15, but didn't say anything about amendments. She did say that you will get whatever type...
  15. Shotguns
    I was checkin out some old gun magazines that someone gave to me and I seen a picture of an 870 that had a side saddle on it and the shells that were in the saddle were made of clear plastic. You could see the shot inside the shells. Who makes those and where can I git em?? Anyone know?
  16. Accessories and Gear
    Can anyone suggest a source for plastic boxes for .30 carbine ammo? Maybe someone has some around that have fallen into disuse now that they're shooting a different caliber? Has anyone tried the cheap ones that are currently on fleabay?
  17. Pistol Permits
    In another thread there was a reference to a new plastic permit card. What are the details about getting one? I have an unrestricted permit in Monroe, Co.

    I was in there just today and Joyce told me any new license's would be the plastic ones abd they'd phase the others in over time.
  20. Pistol Permits
    I called the Ontario County Clerk's office today to ask if they had any plans to go to the plastic card permits. I was (happily) informed that they are working on getting the software and the equipment installed and hope to be up and running by the end of this year. There is a possibility that...
