Hello from NY

I am new to the forum and new to handguns. I recently just acquired my permit to own a pistol after about 9 months of waiting (our county does things super fast obviously) and am excited to get lots of range time and eventually upgrade to full concealed carry. My first and current handgun is a gen4 g19.

I am sure you guys will see me lurking about and posting questions as I navigate through learning to shoot my glock properly and become familiar with the handgun world like i am with the rifle world. Don't worry though. I am not afraid of the search function.

Welcome to GT and congrats on the permit!

What's the procedure, if any, for you to ditch those restrictions? Just curious

Welcome to the Forum, from another Upstate NYer. I take it you have a restricted permit. I don't know the practices in Erie County but in many other upstate counties you can get the restrictions removed by filing a request with a SupCt judge with a simple explanation as to why you want an unrestricted permit. Your local SCOPE chapter (Shooters Committee on Political Education -- which you should join) probably has members who are well informed about this. www.scopeny.com

Welcome from Washington county! I too, am curious what the plan is to get rid of the restrictions (i'm restricted to hunting and target shooting). I'd like to at least carry camping and hiking, etc... Although always on me would be nice.

It varies by county, so I was curious about what he was going to do for his county.

Here are a couple suggestions for you, assuming it has been at least a year you've had your permit, and you haven't been getting speeding tickets or in other trouble.

You could join or go to a gun club in your area and talk to other owners with Washington County permits, and see what they have to say about the process. Although keep in mind that rumor is as strong in real life as it is on the internet.

You could stop into your county clerks office, and nicely and politely inquire about the process. You could call instead, but sometimes phone calls don't work too good in communicating.

Along the way, you could get a certificate in NRA basic pistol, and then a certificate in NRA personal protection outside the home. These might (and I mean might) help you if you ever write a judge a nice letter asking for your restrictions to be removed.

Your county might have some other specifc training course that needs to be required as part of this process.

Bottom line is it will all be very specific to your county, your clerk, and your judge. The judge has the authority, but the clerk might know the details. Some counties also involve the police in this sort of decision process, other counties don't rely on the police for anything other than the background check.
