I've had my pistol permit for about a year now and want to get my CCW. I meet all the requirements to get it but, I live in NY. NY is a "may issue" state. Which means I have to have a reason to carry. I do go to the range alot after work and have to travel all the way home to get my stuff. (about a half an hour home and half an hour back to the range.) So time and gas are a factor. But I'm not sure if that's a good enough reason for them. What do you guys think? Any advice?

I don't think that would fly. What job do you work? Any crazy exes? Possible dangers in your line of work?

Self defense. What better reason is there? That's the first I have heard of a may issue state I feel bad for you bud I'm in pa and its very easy to obtain (as long as your not a felon convict etc.) good luck.

Not joking but I hear if you claim to be homosexual and fear that people don't like it is a good reason..but I'm not 100%

Yea I'm sure, it's gotta suck out there ( for gun laws), it's just as hard to get your cc out there as ny right?

 I'm sorry bro, it must suck to not be able to defend yourself (legally) especially in one of the states with the most gangs around. Not to mention alot of illegals who don't care about laws and life.

Yea, I have to come up with something good. I don't think the gay thing will work and for the self defense thing, it's not a good reply here. (Which sucks) Being American should be enough as stated above. But being in NY, I guess that doesn't matter. Any other ideas?

I do not. My boss is pretty cool though, what are you thinking?
You can say your a buisness owner and you feel uncomfortable taking Money drops to the bank late at night when the store/buisness closes. Just a thought

Most states need the proof of the bank deposit. I know CA is hard but I know NY is even harder originally being from NY myself. Good luck trying to get your ccw.
