NYS Pistol Permit Recertification
As many of you are aware the deadline for pistol permit recertification is fast approaching. For those of you that did not get a reminder letter from the NY State Police or need more information see the following.
Please be advised that if your permit was issued before January 15th 2013 you are required to recertify before January 31st 2018. This is part of The NY SAFE Act passed in January 2013. A law that many thought only applied to “Black Rifles”. 

There are two ways to recertify. One is to visit the State Police website and re-certify on line: https://firearms.troopers.ny.gov/pprecert/welcome.faces
The second is to recertify by mail using the form available at this link: https://troopers.ny.gov/Firearms/PPB-2.pdf

Failure To Recertify May Lead To Confiscation Of ALL Firearms!

After speaking with many SCOPE members, it seems most are selecting the paper form as it is a method of passive resistance. In doing so the State Police will need to manually enter the data you supply. If you choose this method it is highly recommended that you send it United States Postal Service “Return Receipt”.

Finally be advised that nothing in this webpage is to be taken as legal advice. How you proceed is your personal choice.
