Out of curiosity, is there a time limit for turning in a ticket to have a pistol removed from your license? I'm having a hard time finding the time to get downtown and have it removed (it looks like I won't be able to do it this week) and I was wondering if there was a time limit for doing so?

It depends on the county. I sold one recently and didnt take the ticket in and have it amended for a couple of months. They didnt say anything at all.

i waited 3 months one time, clerks didn't care
I was 2-3 months as well....I was no longer in possession..paper trail to gun store then some guy bought and took it home after he rec'd PO...I was waiting for a second gun to sell so I would go to Clerk's office just once...

Have waited three or four months to remove one from permit in Oneida county, no problems there.

ok....maybe my paranoia is working overtime, but when I sold a pistol, I had it removed the very next day the County Clerk was open.

Think about it....if this person should happen to go out and do something illegal with the pistol, it will get traced back to YOU. Worst case, you're sharing a cell with the guy. Best case, you're still spending money defending yourself when you didn't need to.

Yes, this authorization process for ownership of pistols can be onerous at times, but don't ignore it and hope that nothing bad will happen. All it takes is one instance, and your life will be forever changed.

I think that is paranoia talking...but a little bit of paranoia isn't a bad thing.

I get my permit amended promptly too. However, if I didn't, I don't think I would fear repercussions from the next owners actions, unless you sold them the handgun illegally...However, If sold legally, there is a trail and clear indication that it is not your handgun.
