    Default Why on earth is this NYC gun license renewal application so long?!?!

    We have to renew online and upload all the documents and forms. It's like a new gun license application all over again - 17 screens of questions and forms to upload. They have all of this information already from when they approved the license. Why do they need this stuff all over again? A renewal for anything should not be just as long as the original application process. I even had to upload my license although I had to click on the license number in their system to start the renewal process. So much of this 17 screen process is redundant.

    FYI
    I never received notice by mail to renew. I had to contact the NYPD. Several people told me the renewal paperwork has always been sent late. It's not a new problem.

    It's all about trying to deny you the permit, or discourage you from applying for it.

    Once they went online all information has to put in as if it is a new application.
    i did mine in 2018.
    Had a few hiccups but the PAA e mailed me and got it straightened out.
    Stay with it.
    All the forms can be downloaded from the website.

    Honestly cant tell what is worse - online or in-person. I did my original permit in person... but by time I had to renew it was online, and buggy - which meant I had to then contact them (hahaha) to get it straightened out, THEN re-apply. Everything was late, permit expired and of course calling 1PP they said "don't worry about it buddy" but the second time around a lot of the info was pre-populated and was so much easier.

    Got my renewed last year, like everyone else has said, the whole process was designed to discourage you from renewing or contemplating moving to some where else. But, I gotta say this, the few times that I have problems and questions with the process, they replied back to me through email with almost no delay.

    Sorry to hijack this thread, but it caught my attention. Do you need to get reference letters all over again? Also, do you need to re-verify your employment again (letter or payroll stub)?
    Just wondering what to expect come time for renewal

    No, I just had to confirm my employer name / location in the form - no need for new ref letters

    It takes several months and since mine didn't come in on time I was very concerned. They told me to just keep my guns locked up at my Apt and that I would be fine. Still it is kind of ridiculous, they know they won't get you your approval on time but still don't permit you to apply for it until just before it expires. Not sure if it's purposeful or if they just don't care. This is from my previous post on this subject...

    "Just wanted to follow up here. I received my new permit in October, 7 months after I applied for my renewal."
