WHAT TO DO
(The BASICS)

  1. Go to NCPD and request an application. Ask for two, a spare is a good thing.
  2. Carefully read all of the instructions. If you do not understand any part of it, seek out help. The NCPD are usually very helpful, but you can additionally go to a gun club and ask there. Please, unless you know that a pistol licensing service is reputable...DO NOT USE THEM! They are usually RIP-OFFs.
  3. Fill out the application(s), get your pictures and get your Postal checks.
  4. Make copies of everything and save them. They come in handy at renewal time.
  5. Take all of this to the NCPD Pistol Licensing Section. They will review the application at that time.
  6. Now, sit back and wait. The process can take up to 6-months. When you submit your application, ask them what the current processing time is. The average is about 4-months.
  7. IMPORTANT - You do not have to own a pistol to get a license, and, if you have a license, you do not have to buy a pistol.

HOW TO BUY A PISTOL
(The BASICS)

  1. Read the Pistol License Handbook given to you with your application packet. This handbook should/must be saved.
  2. After you have your license, go to a gun store and purchase a pistol (See 'Buying Your First Handgun'). You will be required to show your NYS Pistol License.
  3. You can not take the pistol with you at this time. But you will be given a Bill of Sale (BoS).
  4. Take the BoS to the NCPD Pistol Section and purchase a PURCHASE DOCUMENT (PDoc). They will ask to see the BoS.
  5. Take the PDoc back to the store where you bought the pistol and pick it up.
  6. You have ten (10) days, from when you got the NCPD PDoc to return to the Pistol Section, with the pistol, for review
