I have a friend who wants to get his pistol permit in N.Y.C. Several of my other friends got their permits through a guy who charges about $350 plus the permit fees. He comes highly recomended. I don't know if I should tell my friend to save the $350 and try on his own, or pay this guy to walk him through the process. If anyone here has a N.Y.C. pistol permit, please let me know if you did this on your own, and if so, how difficult was it to get. Any info would be apperciated. Thanks. Steve.

I'm assuming the $350 permit "helper" is Edelmans. They do a lot of advertising in NYC, especially Queens. I worked for Edelmans in their retail store before they closed shop. Their pistol permit service is a crock of shit, trust me. Unless you like their ranges, you really aren't getting anything that he can't do himself. Tell him to do it himself, he'll save the money and put it towards better things, like fingerprinting and whatever other hurdles and fees NYC charges to applicants. The $350 does not cover fees if I remember correctly. The permit process is also not very difficult if he has the time to work through the EASY paperwork. References, fingerprinting and some typing or hand writing are all that needs to be done. Get pictures taken at a passport place and he's ready to go. I hope this helped him save $350 towards his permit and if he takes my advice, encourage him to pay me back by joining or donating to the NRA!!! Take care.

granted I got my pistol permit in a fairly rural and conservative county, but for $350 it would have to be a guaranteed thing for me to pay, which would mean a bribe

There is one guy that I know of with a good rep, Larry something or other. Can be reached at Licensepro@aol.com. He's a real asshole but apparently gets the job done.

Tell your friend to save his money , if he's trying to get a Premise or Target permit its VERY easy to do and its pretty much automatically approved(in 5-6 months) as long as he has no record etc..... If he's trying to get a carry I would suggest the same advise , because unless he can prove he transfers large quantities of cash daily it wont happen and even if he did he will need a lawyer because they will automatically reject it the first time and will need to get the lawyer to appeal it.

Oh yeah, can guarantee he'll get it. The $350 person/business only assesses his ability to get one and that's how they "guarantee" that he'll get it.

Regulars in the forum can tell your friend what to expect and relate their horror stories.

I think we're talking about the same guy. He doesn't gaurantee results, but as long as you are straight with him about things like arrests and stuff, you shouldn't have a problem. This guy does come highly recomended. Thanks for the input guys. By the way , this is not for CCW, just for the house. Steve.
