Ha, you think you got it bad?
Back when I lived in the NY the process in my home town went like this,
1. Purchase handgun (cannot take possession of it though)
2. take receipt for handgun to local Sheriff's office and submit with permit application along with
b. dna sample
c. submit to interview
wait at that time was 10-12 months. Now here is the kicker ..... the Sheriff may
or may not
issue a permit. If issued, the permit was only good to transport the pistol - unloaded in a lockable container, with ammo in a separate lockable compartment of the vehicle in a lockable container as well, to and from the range.
If not issued, you become the proud owner of a pistol that you can never take possession of
What was my solution to all that bs - I moved to VT and bought a pistol while grocery shopping
