Congratulations! I'm still waiting for mine after 6 months. At least you can afford to shoot a lot with a .22.

When people in NY say pistol permit are they reffering to a permit just to own or buy the gun or is to to carry?
You need a permit to own, but the vast majority of NY permits are Concealed Carry. Rarely do people get "premises" or "Possess for employment" permits and those are the only 3 that exist.

So you have to ask the gov of NY ( and probably pay a fee) to own a pistol then go through the normal background check when you buy it?

HOw does it take to get the one to own it and what kind of hoops are they. Man I think delaware gun laws suck until I hear some other states.

Are most restricted carry? What the source of the stats?
No such thing. Only 3 types exist. Concealed carry, Premises, and Possess for employment. Some counties write administrative restrictions on them, but that does not change the status of the permit being a Concealed Carry permit. People don't get premises because then you cannot take them to the range and most people don't need them for employment.

Congrats.

Been about 9+ months here waiting.

I just gave up and spent most of the money I have been saving for pistols the past two years on a M1 Garand.

It would have been nice to have had a pistol.... 6 months ago.

I also find it funny that I can get a M1 Garand shipped to my door in 1 week, but it takes 9+ months to get a pistol permit restricted to target/hunting?

Makes no sense whatsoever.

I did the same money blowing. 2 days before my permit arrived, I bought my Mossberg 590.

Congrats on the pistol permit and the purchase. A cheap .22 handgun is better than no handgun.

My wife and I submitted our application last month. If all goes well, we should have our permits sometime between December and March. At this point it doesn't matter too much because we just spent all of our handgun money on unexpected car repairs, so we may not be able to purchase anything until tax returns come anyway.

According to NY state law, only three types exist. Still, many counties will add restrictions (typically allowing you to carry target shooting or hunting, camping, etc). If you're caught carrying outside of these restrictions, they can and will take away your permit, making handgun ownership once again illegal.

It seems that many rural counties are fairly open to granting unrestricted carry permits; however, most urban and downstate counties restrict most permits, essentially making them a permit to own, rather than a permit to carry concealed.

Yep, the restrictions are nothing more than administrative and as of yet we have no confirmed cases of people getting "caught" carrying outside of them and losing their permit. A NYS concealed carry permit is what it is. A lot of these "restrictions" are just there to confuse people into what they actually have. In fact a lot of people follow the law which does not allow for restrictions and ignore any words written on the permit.
