2010 DATABASE OF NAMES AND ADDRESSES OF PEOPLE TO WHOM PISTOL PERMITS WERE ISSUED BY GOVERNMENTS IN NEW YORK STATE
If you click the link above, you will download a compressed folder,
ny-packing-master.zip. That folder has three files two of which, old.csv and new.csv, cryptome.org got from a person who bought them from the Pistol Permit Bureau of the New York State Police. Cryptome put the folder on its web site in 2010 and again in late December 2013.
Nowadays, the Pistol Permit Bureau sells expurgated, pistol permit files. The Bureau legally sold at least one pair (old and new) of unexpurgated, pistol permit files in 2010. The two, csv files here are unexpurgated.
Spreadsheet programs are the best way to read the csv files.
