The Erie County Clerk's Office is now offering you the ability to enroll in email updates on the status of your pistol permit application. This form is ONLY to enroll, NOT to get a status update. Once you are enrolled you will receive updates as the application progresses through the process.
The Application Process will follow these basic steps which will represent the email alerts you will get. These alerts are automatically sent when an application goes from one step to the next.
Please be patient as this process can take 8-12 months or maybe even longer as NYS continues to make changes. Be assured that we will continue to notify you anytime your application moves to the next step and that you do not have to call our office. If you want to check on your status you must go to the ClerkHelp website and log in. If you don't remember your password then you can select lost password and reset it.
