I live in Suffolk County on Long Island and this year will be 39 years that I’ve had a “sportsman” pistol permit. My question is for all of you upstate. How easy is it to get a full carry permit upstate ? Here on Long Island it’s only given if you can prove you carry a lot of money for a business , you can prove your life is in danger , retired LEO. Does this apply upstate ? I always thought this was a statewide law , is it or is it up to the county. Many times I thought about applying for a full carry permit but then I read the SCPD license handbook and forget about it for a couple of years.
