New York State allows you to make changes to
your license by filing an amendment to your license. This is how
you add or remove firearms from your license, and request changes in your
restrictions and make other requests including for a DUPLICATE
LICENSE. It is very easy to do and it only costs $3.00
per gun to file. You must file an amendment when you buy or sell
a firearm. If you have a gun that accepts barrels of different calibers,
you have to register each barrel. If you have a black powder firearm
and you want to start shooting it, you must file an amendment and have
the firearm added to your license BEFORE you buy the parts that
you need to make it go BANG. Each time you add a new gun to your
license you are given a green slip that
lists the gun by make, model and serial number, and is signed by your
issuing judge. You must carry both your original license and the
amendment listing the gun that you are
carrying. Having your license and not the amendment for the gun
you are carring, is a big NO NO. SEE:WHEN
DO I HAVE TO CARRY MY LICENSE AND AMENDMENTS? It takes
from one to three weeks to complete a normal amendment transaction.

When you move from one county to another you should transfer your license to your new county. If you are moving to Orange County from a county that has a license that must be renewed, call the Pistol Department to see what you are required to do. Do not wait. You do not want your license to expire while you are completing the requirements to obtain an Orange County Issued license.
The administrator of an estate is given 15 days to transfer firearms to an FFL or to the Sheriff's Department. (Under normal circumstances, the police will not know and will not come to your house 16 days after a death to collect the firearms. Everyone knows that it is unrealistic to even expect that an administrator for an estate will be appointed in the allowed 15 days. Having the firearms listed on another license is the easiest way to go if that is possible. Do make sure that the firearms are safe and secure.) CALL AN FFL AND YOUR LAWYER! (See 265.20 (1)(f))
If your license is over 5 years old see: THE BRADY BILL AND THE NICS SYSTEM
