Recent Changes to Orange County Application
There are 2 important changes this year for the Orange County NY Pistol Permit Application process...
1) You no longer need to pre-purchase and register a handgun with your application, you can wait to receive your permit before you go shopping for your new handgun.
***Please note this will add 2-3 weeks before you can pick up your new gun from the store as you will have to go back to County Clerk and add the gun to your permit and wait to receive it showing the gun added to the back of your card.
2) You no longer need to deposit your initial paperwork (criminal statement and pedigree sheet) prior to getting a fingerprinting date.
You can simply print those pages from the official website and you must call to schedule your fingerprinting whereupon you will bring those completed forms.
