New Website look

As you may have noticed the website has a new look and feel to it.  We have converted to a new software package that gives us more flexibility in handling photos, posts and events.  

As of now there is NO need for any member to have a separate login as all of the information on the site is public by it’s nature.  If the time comes that we need a private portion of the site setup for club members only then we will work with members to allow access to those that need it.

If you see anything that is incorrect on the site or a link that doesn’t work please let me know and I’ll get it fixed.

Here is the link to the NYSP web site for recertification of your pistol license as required under the SAFE Act. If your license was issued before January 15, 2013, you are required to complete your recertification before January 31, 2018.

The State Police began mailing out notification letters on January 3rd. There is, however, no guarantee that they have a valid address for all licensees. Even if you do not receive notification, you are still ultimately responsible for completing the recertification process. You will have to repeat this process every 5 years. Upon completion of the certification procedure, you will be given your next “due date.” You can submit your information on line or print out a paper document and submit it by mail. Paper forms are also available at all NYSP locations. While local licensing authorities are not directly involved in the process, they may have the forms available.

PLEASE NOTE: This system does not handle Westchester County, Nassau County, Suffolk County or New York City issued licenses. Each of these jurisdiction’s current procedures still apply.
