Ontario County Pistol Permit Amendment Procedures during COVID-19

NYS Pistol or Revolver License Amendment

_______________________________________________

Overview

When amending your pistol permit there will be a $3 fee for each amendment. You must amend your permit in person at the Ontario County Clerk’s Office.

Amending your permit can consist of adding or disposing of a handgun and/or changing your name and/or address. A change of address requires the permit be amended in our office within 10 days of the change.

Adding or Disposal of a Handgun

When adding a handgun, we require the make, caliber, and serial number along with the name and address of who the gun came from. If it was purchased from a dealer, we will require a receipt from the dealer showing the make, caliber, and serial number of the gun.

When disposing of a handgun, we also require the name and address of who the gun was sold to along with the make, caliber, and serial number of the gun.
