STATE OF NEW YORK PISTOL LICENSE AMENDMENT
See PL 400.00 (9)

9 .  License: amendment .  Elsewhere than in the city of New York, a person licensed to carry or possess a pistol or revolver may apply at any time to his licensing officer for amendment of his license to include one or more such weapons or to cancel weapons held under license .  If granted, a record of the amendment describing the weapons involved shall be filed by the licensing officer in the executive department, division of state police, Albany .  Notification of any change of residence shall be made in writing by any licensee within ten days after such change occurs, and a record of such change shall be inscribed by such licensee on the reverse side of his license . ...

    New York State allows you to make changes to your license by filing an amendment to your license.  This is how you add or remove firearms from your license, and request changes in your restrictions and make other requests including for a DUPLICATE LICENSE.  It is very easy to do and it only costs $5.00 per gun to file.  You must file an amendment when you buy or sell a firearm.  If you have a gun that accepts barrels of different calibers, you have to register each barrel.  If you have a black powder firearm and you want to start shooting it, you must file an amendment and have the firearm added to your license BEFORE you buy the parts that you need to make it go BANG.  Each time you add a new gun to your license you are given a green slip that lists the gun by make, model and serial number, and is signed by your issuing judge. You have to have your license with the gun listed on it when you have your gun on you..  SEE:WHEN DO I HAVE TO CARRY MY LICENSE AND AMENDMENTS?  It takes from four to six weeks to complete a normal amendment transaction.
    If you are buying a firearm from an FFL you will be given a pick up cupon or green slip that you give to the FFL when you pick up the gun.  Make sure that you give him the correct slip with the correct serial number.

WHAT TO DO.

  • Pick up an amendment at the ORANGE COUNTY CLERK'S OFFICE or from the gun store.  (The Pistol Permit Department  will mail you a copy.) You can also download it from my website or from the Orange County Sheriff's Department website. (If you use my website you can fill the form out online. See below.)
  • Return the filled out amendment in duplicate with supporting paperwork, $5.00 per gun for plastic permits, a self addressed stamped large envelope, and a copy of you pistol license.  (Supporting paper work are things such as a copy of the bill of sale or deposit, proof of name change, etc., when required.  Ask the Pistol Permit Department.) READ THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR MORE INFORMATION!
  • Wait for your mail to come.
APPROPRIATE TRANSACTION(S)
ACQUIRED DISPOSED MOVED
NAME CHANGE TRANSFER DUPLICATE
SURRENDERED SUSPENDED REVOKED
DECEASED OTHER
  • ACQUIRED refers to adding a firearm to your license.
  • SURRENDERED, and DISPOSED refers to removing firearms from your license.
  • DUPLICATE refers to replacing a lost or stolen, damaged or worn out license. You are only allowed to have one license at one time.  You are not allowed to have one license that you keep at home and one that you carry.  
  • OTHER is used to request a change in your restrictions or make other changes.(  NOTE: Normally I have just filled in "Change in restrictions, see reverse.," and then stated the reason on the blank reverse side of the application.)
  • SUSPENDED, REVOKED AND TRANSFER are for the Pistol Department's use only.
  • DECEASED is for the spouse or administrator of an estate to use to notify the Pistol Department of a death of the license holder, and how the registered handguns were disposed of.

FEES: In 2006 the fees were changed so that if you want to add a gun to your license and you choose to keep the old paper style license then the fee is only $3 per gun. If you have a plastic license and you replace it then you have to pay $5 per gun

UPDATE: The form was updated on 6/14 but I did not update the website till 3/1/16. Sorry, no one told me.

      OTHER INFORMATION

    If you are changing your restrictions, you might/will get a letter requesting a meeting with your issuing judge.
   You are given 10 days after you move within the county to amend your address on your license.  See Important Information
    When you move from one county to another you should transfer your license to your new county.  If you are moving to Orange County from a county that has a license that must be renewed, call the Pistol Department to see what you are required to do.  Do not wait.  You do not want your license to expire while you are completing the requirements to obtain an Orange County Issued license.
    The administrator of an estate is given 15 days to transfer firearms to an FFL or to the Sheriff's Department.  (Under normal circumstances, the police will not know and will not come to your house 16 days after a death to collect the firearms.  Everyone knows that it is unrealistic to even expect that an administrator for an estate will be appointed in the allowed 15 days.  Having the firearms listed on another license is the easiest way to go if that is possible.  Do make sure that the firearms are safe and secure.) CALL AN FFL AND YOUR LAWYER! (See 265.20 (1)(f))
    If your license is over 5 years old see: THE BRADY BILL AND THE NICS SYSTEM
