  1. Pistol Permits
    Hi Everyone, By the end of january i will be applying for a conceal carry license. i wanted to know did the type of references you had mattered? does the judge look into there history? Will a using a lawyer as a reference have more clout then my barber? I have a clean record but if for some...
  2. Pistol Permits
    I needed only one character reference left, I asked a friend I have known for years. After he fills it out he asks me if his DUI from 14 years ago matter. WTF!? He signed both of my hard copies and the reference sheet. Can I white-out the hard copies and just make a new copy of the reference or...

  6. Pistol Permits
    Submitted my application for pistol permit on March 5th for Saratoga County. 3 of my 4 references received, filled out, and sent back the reference sheet all by or before March 10th. For some reason my 4th reference still hasn't even received his reference sheet in the mail yet. Background...
  7. Pistol Permits
    I just attended the mandatory 3 hr safety course, next is picking up the application and fingerprints. My problem is this: because I live in north tonawanda 2 of my 4 references are supposed to be in north tonawanda as well, my only issue with that is that I don't have any close friends that...

  10. Pistol Permits
    All my references had to get their reference sheet notarized. Did your references have to do the same? Is this pretty much a customary thing for each NY county to do? I was just wondering because this is kind of "an out of your way" thing that my references had to go through to get. I feel bad...

    Does anyone know if Oswego checks the references listed on the pistol permit application, by phone call or otherwise? And if so, what do they ask?
  12. Pistol Permits
    Hi, great forum you guys have, I took the course for the pistol permit and dropping my application monday, but I have a few questions: Will they contact my reference by phone or letter? How long usually take in this county for my reference to be contact? If it is by letter, that letter need to...
  13. Pistol Permits
    Question: How many references actually need to reply out of the 4 required? Obviously all 4 would be ideal, but I think it would be unreasonable if they actually required all 4 of them to return reference sheets. In a day and age ruled by technology, it is harder and harder to get people to...
  14. Pistol Permits
    All my references have gotten their paperwork to fill out, and all but one has already sent it back in. I don't want to pester the person too much, but I still want them to get it done in a very timely manner. I have called at least every other day asking if they have got it sent out with the...

  16. Pistol Permits
    So I know this guy. I've known him about 4 years. We've hung out a bunch, we have similar hobbies, we talk about various things. He tells me he's working on the paperwork to get his CCW permit. He wants me to sign for him. In the past I've seen him threaten people with a taser (and think...
