Range Maintenance Scheduled – Completed

I wanted to thank those members that showed up to help with the bullet trap service work, range cleaning and cabling (Dean and Charlie).

All together, there was about 8 of us. Very disappointing turnout considering we have over 200 members! Please remember that we are all MEMBERS of the same club. Everyone needs to contribute some effort to make this club a success. We can’t expect the same 8-10 people to shoulder all of the work.

Next work day, please volunteer some of your time to help.

NEW YORK STATE POLICE HAVE PUT UP THE PISTOL LICENSE RECERTIFICATION WEBSITE

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.
