  1. Pistol Permits
    Can someone please confirm for me that I would need 4 character references (each reference must be a Westchester County resident and cannot by related by blood or marriage) for my pistol permit? I have my appointment April 16th and I wanna get the ball rolling with getting these letters. I was...
  2. Pistol Permits
    Hi all, I currently hold a Westchester County handgun permit, approved for range use only and I'm potentially moving to NYC later this year. I have researched the NYPD website and they offer no advice on what I'm looking for. I was wondering if anyone had any insight as to what the process...
  3. Pistol Permits
    How often can I add a handgun to my pistol permit ? I'm only looking to add about 2 a year. I obtained a Ruger Mark III .22LR when I received my permit in November. I just put the paperwork in for a Glock 19 9mm in January. I'm looking to add a S&W M&P .40 in mid-summer. I would like to add a...
  4. Ammunition and Reloading
    I recently purchased 500 rds from blueline tactical at about $214 after taxes. Seems like a OK deal, I was wondering if anyone knew of better priced for bulk purchases. The sportsmanguide.com seems to total out of 9mm bulk ammo, they do have the best prices online, but I am trying to buy what I...

  6. Announcements and Site Help
    How can we start a group for Westchester County?? I think it would be nice for Westchester County Residents to have one place to go where we can find out or discuss information that pertains to us specifically since rules, regulations and procedures vary by county. There is plenty of great...
  7. Pistol Permits
    Hey guys, I had a question...Do Westchester County residents have to meet with a judge during the application process? I ask because I've read that other places require a meeting with a judge before approval.

    I hear many different ways that I can take my pistol to the range. In a locked box unloaded with the ammo in a separate location. Loaded concealed. Unloaded concealed. Which one is it ? I have no problem keeping it in a lock box. I just want to know what the law is. Thanks in advance.
  14. Pistol Permits
    On March 26, 2013 I picked up an application for a target pistol permit. On March 27, 2013 I called to make an appointment and a woman who I believe to be a female officier told me the earliest she had was March 28, 2014. I complained and said to her how can that be possible. The notary stamps...
  15. Pistol Permits
    4 months ago I applied for my Westchester pistol permit. My only options were with a target or hunting restriction. Since I don't hunt I checked target. Is there a possibility I would get a pistol permit with a Sportsman restriction or do you have to apply for one. I do hike and it would nice...

  19. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    4 more years as County Exec. Makeup of the county legislature still in flux, but amazingly could go well for gun owners. Rob's opponent was a virulent anti-gun progressive TURD. A lot of the folks on the board are from upstate, but a pro-gun candidate decisively defeated an anti-gun zealot in...
