Pistol Permit Course

The NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude for owning and operating a pistol safely. This is a one day classroom course. Students learn NRA’s rules for safe gun handling; pistol parts and operation; ammunition; shooting fundamentals; range rules; shooting from the bench rest position, two handed and one handed standing positions; cleaning the pistol; and continued opportunities for skill development.

Due to New York State law, this is a classroom only course,the hands on part of this course is not available. It is currently illegal for any unlicenced adult to handle a pistol in NY, even during safety training.

If you disagree with this law, please let your state legislators know!

Hunter Saftey Courses are also available.
