When it comes to renewal at the 5 year mark, does "proper Cause" have to be justified again?It is not impossible to get upgraded to Full Carry in Westchester. Generally if you don't have your sportsman for at least one year, don't bother. Judge Reitz in Putman once laid out his criteria for upgrading. Both Putnam and Westchester are in the NY 9th Judicial District. One could make the argument that the criteria in the counties in the 9th should apply uniformly.
You still need bonafide reasons, exhibits, articles, personal experiences and or situations where you can demonstrate an unrestricted would have been warranted.
Training, and I mean a lot of training, including advanced like offered at the SIG academy helps. I am not LEO or retired LEO and I was granted Full Carry in Westchester.
Finally, the luck of the draw with respect to the Judge matters, although you can't control that, even if you write to a specific Judge. Good luck, it can be done.
My amendment and attachments were 40+ pages and it took 5 months. My sportsperson took 3 months from interview to permit.
Please do not ask, I will not go into my personal application details. My advise, do your homework or hire a good 2a attorney with full carry success history in Westchester.
Do not attempt to claim it is your constitutional right to full conceal carry,
It is not.
Finally, I got mine when Rob was county Exec. No idea what Lattmer has planned, although he cannot demand judges rule one way or the other. It's a separation of powers thing.
Best of luck to all those who try. Be honest, do not embellish and expect to wait 5-6 months tnhear back.
