NYS Pistol Permit Class

The Tioga County Sportsmen’s Association (TCSA) has been authorized to teach the NYS Pistol Permit Education Class which is required before anyone in NY State can be issued a Concealed Carry Pistol Permit.

Our authorization is valid for Tioga, Chemung, Tompkins, and Broome Counties.

Currently it is our intention to conduct a class monthly. Minimum attendance is 6 people, the maximum is 12.   This rational takes into consideration time, effort, safety, and personal involvement for the attendees.

The fee for the class is $300.00   This includes all that one needs to complete the class (firearms, ammunition, training books, and lunch).

As directed by NYS the class is required to have 16 hours of classroom, with a written exam that requires 90% to pass. Plus, two hours of hands-on live fire exercises with a qualification for proficiency. Both requirements are reasonably easy to accomplish.

The next class is scheduled for November 4th & 5th.

Class starts at 8 AM till 5:30 PM both days with a half (½) hour lunch break.

To get a seat, a $100.00 deposit should be sent to:


PO Box 598

Owego, NY 13827


Checks are to be made payable to TCSA, just put "CC class" on memo line. Please include your mailing address, phone number, e-mail, and class dates along with your payment so we can send further information or notify you of any changes.

Additional classes will be added as the program progresses. Check the website

for availability.
