I am so happy it finally came! Took my pistol course May 23rd. I purposely took it in Conn. so I could do the live fire right then and not wait till after I got my permit. Called to make appointment a week before my pistol course and they gave me April 2014! She told me to call every week to see if there is a drop out. I called again two days later and they had an opening June 4th of this year! Lucky, huh? So, I got printed and submitted apps on June 4th. Came in the mail today! Dated Oct. 9th. Mail came at 3:45 and I ran out the door like a lunatic cause clerks office closes at 4:30. I was in and out in 20 mins. Went to Blueline Tactical to pick up my M&P 9c and they had just gotten a shipment of ammo! Lucky again! Anyways its finally all over. Just over 4 months in Westchester isnt too bad at all.

Excellent and you sure did get lucky with that appt. It took 4.5 months for my appt and that was 2 years ago before the rush.

Congrats. I submitted on 7/24. If these recent approvals are a good indication then I should be right behind you. Blueline is holding onto a P226 for me.

Another lucky winner! Congratulations!

I am officially jealous. I submitted on June 26. Maybe there's hope?

Thanks, guys. There is def hope. You should be right behind me. Dont let the anti-gunners discourage you by making this process so annoying and long.

The process deterred me for 10 years and then took 7 years until I knew enough westchester residents to fill out the reference paper... then I went to turn it in only to find out the paperwork was too old and expired and had to start over. But this time I found out they don't "have" to be westchester residents; even though the manual states that.. so one more year and my wait was over.. that was two years ago.

I put if off for so long also because of the process. It really is annoying but this time I just did it all as fast as I could to just get it over with.

That's awesome. I can't wait to make that trip. I have so many other pistols I want to buy. I'll also be buying a "black" rifle or 6 when the unSAFE Act is overturned !

Would this be target, or concealed carry? I'm considering going through the headache, and I'm seeing how fellow westchester slaves have managed.

Ugh.....I just called the permit office to check on the status of my application.

I submitted my paperwork and got fingerprinted on 6/26/13. As of 10/24/13, my application is "about to go to the judge." According to the clerk, I've got another "month to six weeks" to wait for a decision.

Oh well...nothing I can do about it.
