We offer the 4 hour NYS Pistol Safety Course. This covers all the requirements for your pistol safety course in New York State.

Our course is approved for Onondaga, Oswego, Oneida, Jefferson, Cortland and Madison Counties.
Some facts about your pistol license;
- Your pistol license in not good in all areas of NY, you need to know where you can go.
- Stores that have “no-gun” policies do not carry the weight of law in NY. Store policy does not supersede State Law however they may ask you to leave. You may carry there however if asked to leave you must.
- Your NYS License is good in approx. 22 states and is an unrestricted license anywhere else you travel to. Check the laws as many states have open and conceal carry both and you must follow the law in those states.
- If you receive a sportsman license you may reapply for an unrestricted and we suggest doing so (add other courses to your resume before doing so).
- You must carry your license at all times and Onondaga County Law Enforcement is aware that you have a pistol license as it is attached to your driver’s license.

Concealed Weapons License Reciprocity with Other States
CAUTION! Gun Concealed carry laws vary greatly from state to state and even within counties and municipalities within those states. Therefore, if you have a Concealed Weapons License and are planning to visit a state that has concealed weapons license , remember that you are subject to the laws of that state, including any county or city ordinances, that apply to concealed weapons licenses and concealed weapons carry. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with those laws, ordinances and codes and comply with them. Concealed weapons license reciprocity in any form is simply that, reciprocity, and it does not immunize a person from criminal or civil consequences for breaking the law. Also, please note that some states grant reciprocity to Concealed Carry Licenses for concealed firearms only, and do not extend reciprocity for other weapons . That may include under its Concealed Weapons Licenses devices such as dirks, dirk knives, bowie knives, daggers or any other deadly or dangerous weapon.
