Thank you for taking the time to visit the Erie County Pistol Permit website. Our office hours follow the Erie County Clerk's Office hours except we are closed to the public on Wednesdays.
The Erie County Clerk's Office processes Pistol Permits for Erie County residents under terms of appropriate New York State laws. Following the completion of an application and criminal background checks, final approval or denial of a permit is the decision of an Erie County Court Judge or New York State Supreme Court Justice.
Erie County has a large community of Pistol permit holders and is prepared to provide services to both new and existing residents. Below you will find links to printable forms and other helpful resources.
