In order to obtain a New York State Pistol Permit you must successfully complete a Basic Pistol Safety course from a Certified NRA Instructor. Our training school offers this course along with “full service” pistol permit application assistance which includes professionally typed application, passport size photos, notary public services, photo copies, and additional typed letters. Most places charge $150 for just the class alone and do not offer application assistance. $300 for Full Service is definitely worth it!!
