Alright, but I can still use the gun under the owner's supervision, correct? I'm almost 16 btw, although I don't think that makes any difference.
No, you can not.
Technically, NY law does not allow any person who does not have a permit AND THE GUN LISTED ON IT to even HANDLE a handgun.
In other words, even if you had a permit, you can't use the gun unless it's ON YOUR permit.
The only exception is if you are enrolled in an approved class and under the supervision of the instructor.
I say the following for information purposes only and am not suggesting any behavior or action on anyone's part...
Just so you know, this is a law that NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE, enforces. Everyone I know with handguns shoots all of their buddies handguns, and their buddies buddies handguns and NO ONE cares. I have fired the duty weapon of police officers. NO ONE cares.
The preceding information was for informational purposes only and not a suggestion for action on anyone's part.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
