     Getting a Pistol License or Handgun License in New York City is hard but not impossible. It will cost more than it should and take longer than it should but if you want one and fill out all of the paperwork correctly and do not have any problems in your background then you should be able to get one. These are some of the links but make sure that you go to some of the local ranges and stores to get the information that you need to know.

NOTE
NO ONE CAN SPEED UP THE PROCESS OR GET YOU A LICENSE THAT YOU CAN NOT GET FOR YOURSELF. IF SOMEONE OFFERS TO GET YOU A LICENSE AND IS GOING TO CHARGE YOU $100s FOR IT, YOU ARE PROBABLY GETTING RIPPED OFF. YOU WILL STILL HAVE TO FINISH ALL OF YOUR OWN PAPERWORK AND GO TO ALL OF THE APPOINTMENTS.

OTHER SHOOTING DISCIPLINES
The Highpower Sport is long range shooting using standard issue U.S. service rifle, such as an M1 Garand, M14 (M1A civilian), or AR-15. The term "Highpower" does not refer to rifles that are unusually powerful but was originally used to distinguish between smallbore (.22 rimfire) and centerfire events. Today, Highpower events are modeled after a course of fire once given to U.S. soldiers. This includes firing from the offhand (standing) and sitting positions at 200 yards and the prone positions at 300 and 600 yards. Training classes are given twice a year to qualify you to buy military surplus rifles at a discount from the CMP Program.
The International Defensive Pistol Association
Official WEB Site
IDPA_LOGO
Defensive pistol shooting as a sport is quite simply the use of practical equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated "real world" self-defense scenarios. Shooters competing in Defensive Pistol events are required to use practical handguns and holsters that are truly suitable for self-defense use. No "competition only" equipment is permitted.
United States Practical Shooting Association
Multiple targets, moving targets, targets that react when hit, penalty carrying no-shoot targets mixed-in or even partially covering shoot targets, obstacles, movement, competitive tactics, and, in general, any other relevant difficulty the course designer can dream up all combine to keep the competitors enthusiastic and the spectators entertained. While the rules of IPSC state that the course of fire should be realistic and practical, they also state that diversity is to be encouraged, to keep the sport from becoming too formalized or standardized.  In fact, some matches even contain surprise stages where no one knows in advance what to expect.
Single Action Shooting Society
Cowboy and Cowgirl action shooting using the old western style single action revolver and other period firearms and clothing.  The fastest growing section of the shooting sports.

ICORE
Hardcore wheel gun shooters. 

Our matches combine elements of IPSC, the Bianchi Cup, and the Steel Challenge into demanding competition exclusively for revolvers. Scoring is based on total time (no hit factors, faster is better), so match results can be easily calculated by hand. Poor hits or misses simply add time to a shooters score. Many of our local matches classify shooters using the Lewis scoring system, a system that classifies a shooter based on his performance in a match, so first time shooters can easily be ranked against experienced competitors.

It is much more fun to shoot them off a table than it is to knock them down with a 50 lb ball.  Almost all ranges have pin matches several times a year.  Anyone can shoot with just about any gun starting with a 22 on up.

International Sport Shooting Federation
/ Olympic Matches
(Australian web site)
There are 8 ISSF (International Sport Shooting Federation) matches, five of which are shot at the Olympic Games and also at Club, State and National Championship levels. The Olympic matches are Rapid Fire, Free Pistol, Air Pistol (Mens and Womens) and Womens Sport Pistol. The other ISSF events are Standard Pistol  and Center Fire. The Center Fire match is also included at Commonwealth Games. The other matches controlled by Pistol Australia include Black Powder, and Service Pistol events.
