PISTOL PERMIT CLASSES
Please read carefully!
There are different rules based on
when you submitted your application
and what type of pistol permit you want
New York State Pistol Permit Safety Class
for those who submitted their applications
PRIOR to Sept 1, 2022
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.
Please understand that rules/applications change often and it is your responsibility to understand and follow the requirements of your county.
Although you are not REQUIRED to take the mandated 16 hour state training if you applied earlier than the Sept 1 changes, we highly encourage you to enroll in the NRA Basic Pistol Class to begin your pistol training. We will offer this course monthly and is an excellent class for all shooters to build a solid foundation of training skills.
