I live in Herkimer County and have been denied a pistol permit, even though I've had 50 years of safe and responsible rifle & shotgun ownership and use. Why? Not sure, because nobody has given a reason, despite the law. Anyway, my lawyer doesn't want to go up against the judge in the county where he works. Does anybody know of a gun-friendly lawyer in another county who will file an Article 78 action? Otherwise, I'll be blindly calling lawyers in Utica or Syracuse.
