NOTE

I still get people who fail to list an arrest for minor charges.  IF YOU FAIL TO LIST AN ARREST, DON'T EXPECT TO GET A LICENSE. THE JUDGE DOES NOT WANT TO HEAR THAT YOU FORGOT BEING ARRESTED! (How stupid do you think that you sound to the Judge when you say that you forgot the only time that you have been handcuffed, placed in the back of a cop car, read your rights, been fingerprinted, searched, placed in a jail cell, appeared for arraignment, hired a lawyer and gone to trial.)

     Just remember that the sooner you turn in your application, the sooner you get your license. 

HOW TO GET A PISTOL LICENSE IN ORANGE COUNTY, NEW YORK

    It is not difficult to get a pistol license in Orange County if you are 21 years old, qualify and follow the county and state requirements.  It will cost you a small amount of money and a few months for the paperwork to go through, a few hours for a class and some meetings but generally all you do is turn in your application, pay your money and wait. It is easier than you think, (but to be honest, it would be a lot easier if we lived in many other states.)   If you have no major problems in your background and can get four people to sign as references, then you should have no problem.
    If you are between 14 and 21 a new law passed in 2006 prevents you from getting a license but the new law allows you to shoot at a range under supervision.  (See below.)
