The course takes approximately two and a half hours to complete. We first go over weapon safety, then discuss the course of fire (Fifty Round D.C.J.S. Certified Course). Once that is finished we review the HR-218 requirements of the Federal Bill so you know what is expected of you when carrying your weapon out of state. Participants will then go down range for the qualification (minimum of seventy percent). After qualification a photo identification card is issued to the retired officer. This issued card and their police identification card is required to be carried when they are armed. The cost of this program is fifty dollars ($50.00) for the first type of handgun (Revolver / Semi-Auto) and forty dollars for a second type of weapon. This course can be combined with the N.Y.S. Security Guard Annual Firearms renewal course for a discounted price.
All participants are REQUIRED to bring their Retired Police ID card, Pistol License, Weapon(s) of Choice, Magazines, Holster and 50 rounds of Ammunition for each weapon.
All individuals who take this course are required to qualify with a minimum of seventy percent (70%) on a fifty round shooting course (minimum passing is 35 rounds within the designated target area). All participants after listening to the “Use of Force” lecture and review will take a ten question test with a minimum passing grade of seventy percent (70%).
It is required that all participants bring their current N.Y.S. Security License and pistol permit when they come to class.
