NY State Pistol Permit Classes

The Jamestown Rifle Club will be holding NY State Pistol Permit Classes for those interested in receiving their New York State Pistol Permit. All classes are taught by NRA & Chautauqua County Certified Pistol Instructors, who are NOT compensated for their time; they volunteer to teach the class. All proceeds go to the Jamestown Rifle Club to help support the shooting sports.

~All instruction and shooting is done on our indoor range, so all classes WILL be run regardless of weather~

*We are now able to hold the Chautauqua County 5-hour Pistol Permit Class which must be taken before applying for the NYS Possess on Premises Firearm License / Pistol Permit in Chautauqua County. This Firearm License / Pistol Permit allows a person to have a pistol(s) at their Residence and also be able to transport said pistol(s) back and forth to a Range.
