NYS Concealed Carry Firearms Safety Course (16 Hours)
Instructors will focus on the safe care and proper handling of a Firearm. Don’s Security Services designed this course to meet and exceed the requirements necessary with the application process by County Pistol Permit Departments as well as the NYS Concealed Carry Firearms Safety Courses. Don’s Security Services will provide all paperwork and applications at class with instructions for completion.
**This 16-Hour course replaces the previously-sufficient 3-hour Pistol Permit Safety Course**
NYS no longer accepts the 3-Hour Safety Courses that were held in 2022 and earlier. For those who took a course in 2022 but never finished the pistol permit application paperwork, the 16-Hour course is the only acceptable route for application going forward.
