NAA .22 revolver - those you have to give a little extra attention, as he found out. http://wnyt.com/article/stories/S2703744.shtml?cat=300 All NY troopers who separate from service in good standing apply for a permit thru their superintendent, not via the county like "everyone else" ... other retired fed, state (for example, water police) and local (county on down) LE apply via the usual process and need references (four), etc etc. I see a lot of ragging in his future. Those troopers have a decent academy and re-qualify (firearms, fitness and mental eval) at least annually. One lady in the story linked expressed dismay that people are actually in the mall with guns...geez.
