NY STATE PISTOL PERMIT CLASSES
Please Read Carefully!
There are different rules based on when you submitted
your permit application and what type of permit you want
NY STATE PISTOL PERMITS
for those who submitted applications
PRIOR TO Sept 1, 2022
or only want a Premises-Only Permit
Although you are not REQUIRED to take the mandated 16 hour state training if you applied earlier than the Sept 1 changes, or if you want to apply for a premises only permit, we highly encourage you to enroll in the NRA Basic Pistol Class to begin your live-fire pistol training. We will offer this course monthly and is an excellent class for all shooters to build a solid foundation of training skills.
NRA Home Firearm Safety is a nationally-recognized course that meets the requirements for those counties that require a safety course for those who submitted their pistol permits prior to Sept 1, 2022. NRA Home Firearm Safety is a four-hour non shooting course and your $55 enrollment includes all required materials.
NY STATE CONCEALED CARRY PISTOL PERMITS
for those who submit their pistol permit application
AFTER Sept 1, 2022
and want a Concealed Carry Pistol Permit
You must complete NRA Basic Pistol as well as "Day 2: NY State Concealed Carry Permit Application Class".
The requirements to submit a NY State Concealed Carry Pistol Permit application in New York State include 16 hours of training with 2 hours of live-fire range time. This will be done over TWO days. You MUST successfully complete BOTH training classes to obtain a certificate of training completion for your pistol permit application.
Day ONE will be the NRA Basic Pistol Course. You enroll in that class and you will have use of our pistols and ammunition. Day TWO will be the course listed as Day 2: NY State Concealed Carry Training. You can do these classes in any order you choose.
NOTE: You do NOT need training to apply for a Premise Only Pistol Permit.
