Please note: This course is done at The Greene Rod and Gun club on Rt12 in Greene, NY. We employ LOCAL instructors for the training. You don’t need to travel far to receive the best training (not a 6 rd certification) in the area!


If you possess a New York State concealed carry pistol permit that is restricted to hunting and target-use only, depending on your county’s requirements, this class may provide you with valuable training and information you need to apply to request any restrictions be removed to obtain your FULL /UNRESTRICTED Carry NY State Pistol Permit.


Come train with the area’s most reliable, fully insured, qualified, and experienced instructors who retain National Certifications to teach civilian defensive firearm use. Please be aware that there are some instructors who take shortcuts in their training methods and fraudulently claim to have proper certification. You should ask them to prove it. (By the way, FRAUD is a crime in NY State) Each of our instructors carries valid and current credentials which indicate the disciplines in which s/he is certified and would be happy to show them to you. Copies of those certificates are available upon request in writing.


This is the ONLY class in the area in which you will receive actual training in safety, shooting, and proficiency skills, and not just receive a performance certification. You will learn valuable but necessary skills that will not only help you carry your firearm more securely and reliably, but could possibly save your life. This training is the most comprehensive class you will find in the area that actually teaches you the skills you will need to carry concealed.We work closely with the permit offices in each county to ensure that we are providing the most up to date and relevant training possible.

You will learn when you would be justified in using your firearm; but more importantly, you will learn when NOT to use it and how to defuse and deescalate a situation, thus avoiding the chance of ever using your defensive handgun in the first place. We will teach you about the legalities of carrying a firearm and provide information on other important topics. You will be an informed, responsible, and a better shooter when you get done!


You must attend the complete session (classroom and range) in order to receive your letter and your certificate.

Please Note that successful completion of this course in no way guarantees that you will obtain the “Full Carry” permit. That decision is ultimately up to the judge or issuing authority.




Prerequisites: A valid NY State Pistol Permit. A desire to learn real life, valuable skills from instructors who care about what they do and live what they teach.
