Good morning all.
My name is Mike, I am 30 and I am one of those poor souls who finally decided to go through the lengthy process of obtaining a pistol license in one of the lower New York counties.
I hope to have my sportsman/residence permit in a week or two, which is a fancy way of saying target shooting/home defense permit. I've wanted and still do want a P250 or P320 for a few years now.
Realistically looking for a p320 compact 9mm since I'll mostly be using it for target shooting until I can apply for a CC down the road.
The other issue is in NY we are restricted to a 10rd magazine.
I've slowly watched them disappear from all the gun shops and online stores while I waited for the process to go through. My permit process in Rockland County took about 4 months. I've had friends who've taken 6 months, and others who are from Westchester that took well over a year. I didn't want to attempt to purchase it before hand and the permit be denied, or it have to sit at a dealer for months since no one realistically knew the length of time it takes for applications to be approved.
Are they really becoming that scarce? Anyone have any recommendations to getting one without having to wait a few months like local gunshops have been telling me?
Thanks for your time.
