Course Description

This course satisfies the NYPD’s requirement as a Pistol Safety Course when renewing your Special Carry, Limited Carry, Restricted Carry, or Unrestricted Carry license. There is a preliminary on-line portion of this class which must be completed prior to meeting with the instructor for the classroom follow-up and shooting requirement.

Course Prerequisites

You must have a NYC handgun license. The shooting requirement will take place in NYC.

The course will cover the following topics:

Owning a Pistol, Safe Pistol Usage, Pistol Characteristics, Types of Pistols, Pistol Action Types, Pistol Action Components, Using a Pistol, Using a Revolver, Using a Semi-Automatic Pistol, Anatomy of a Cartridge, Cartridge Types and Nomenclature, Ammunition Safety, Introduction to Shooting a Pistol, Shooting Position, Five Elements of a Shooting Position, Learning a Shooting Position, The Benchrest Position, Standing Shooting Positions, Pistol Shooting, Errors, Zeroing Your Pistol, Scoring a Target, Five Common Pistol Shooting Errors, Types of Stoppages, Clearing Pistol Stoppages, Pistol Cleaning and Maintenance, Cleaning a Pistol, Pistol Lubrication, Inspection and Maintenance, Safe Pistol Storage, Selecting Pistols and Ammunition, Selecting a Pistol and Accessories, Selecting Ammunition, Range Practice


While you have 90 days to complete the on-line portion of the class, NYPD typically gives you 30 days to take your class to be eligible for license renewal. Please don’t wait until the last minute to finish your class as we also need to complete the live fire shooting requirement at a range prior to you submitting your renewal paperwork (and class completion certificate) to NYPD.
