Hey Big Cigar, I don't know the answer to your question. My guess would be yes. Out of curiosity wondering how you got one of those coveted NY ccw's ? Were you an leo in some capacity? The reason I'm so curious is I'm moving to PA about 10mn from the NY border and I've already been advised over the phone by NY's finest that if they were to catch me with a handgun in their state rendered inoperable ,hard cased , locked, ammo seperate in any capacity Id be arrested. I'm a ccw holder from VA. I called because on the way to my inlaws property in PA we double back through NY or we used to.
