    It talks about changing out the barrells of you glock to change say a .40 into a 9mm. My question is if you live in NY do you have to have the barrel listed on your permit? In my case I have a G23, on my permit it says:

    Glock Pistol .40S&W Serial # G23

    If I have a 9mm Barrel it obviously is no longer a .40, and my permit would not cover a 9mm. Anyone know how this works?

    Thanks

    I would give your State Firearms/Attorney Generals Office a call to make sure.

    Get it straight from the horses mouth, don't take any chances of losing your permit or ending up in the pen...

    I can offer a little insight as I actually live (or lived, well technically still live - it's complicated) in NY (I have a NY pistol permit - how about that?). I'm not sure what county you are in, and it may vary by county, but Nassau county requires you to list the second barrel as a 2nd caliber on your permit. It's pretty stupid to be honest, because it's the frame that is registered and is actually considered a firearm.

    Also, our state AG doesn't offer legal opinions to the peons on firearms issues, so we are SOL as to the states interpretation of the law outside of actual legal precedent.

    ETA: Just give a call to whoever issues the licenses in your county and ask them.

    Thanks for the link, I will definately check with the pistol permit office prior to doing anything, just read the other thread and it sparked my interest. I figured there had to be someone on GT, in NY that has done this and was just wondering. NY has some of the most screwed up gun laws, so I am wondering if it is even possible, or if it is punishable by death :wow:

    Thanks Ammoguy, I live in Cortland Co. I assumed (the mother of all f-up's) that you would list the other barrel as a 2nd caliber. Maybe someone can confirm this for Cort Co.

    Bugs,

    If your sheriff's office handles permits, call them on Monday.

    Most counties outside of the NYC metronut area don't care.

    My T/C Contenders are registered under caliber as .22 -.45 so I can have any barrel caliber within that range. That was 20+ years ago.
