Hi NY I am retired now, But I had a CC Unrestricted permit in NYC for the last 25+ yrs due to my Job, Back then & when I moved upstate it was easy getting a Non Restricted CCWP up here. Down in the city if you are not a cousin of Mayor Bloomberg.? And even then, getting a Un restricted carry permit,down there is next to Impossible. Even with an Attorney Representing you. I can tell you some Horror stories, of friends of mine who retired from the NYPD & were denied a permit by the Liberal's down there. Hope you have better luck with yours.
