You do NOT need to take this course if you already hold an UNRESTRICTED NYS pistol permit.

Applicants must NOT be a prohibited person regarding firearm ownership (I.E., you cannot be a felon, be convicted of domestic violence, etc.).

Topics covered will include basic firearm safety, maintenance, cleaning, safe storage, transportation, firearm-specific laws, situational awareness, interacting with law enforcement, and more. Students who do not pass the written test with an 80% and/or are unable to show the ability to safely handle and use a handgun will not pass the course.

Both days are from 8:00 AM from 5:00 PM with a working lunch around noon. The instructors will give a light presentation during lunch to get through the material.

Successful completion of our course will result in a certificate valid to submit with your New York State pistol permit application or removal of restrictions on an existing restricted pistol permit in Greene and Albany Counties.
