Congratulations on deciding to get your NY Pistol Permit. New York pistol permit class requirements are met by our open enrollment NRA Basic Pistol class held in multiple venues across the state or a private session at your home or business. (This class also meets the Connecticut, Florida, and many other states' requirements)

This is the easiest way to get a gun permit in New York, and FTI will be with you through the entire process. We are licensed and insured, and our staff of certified instructors is dedicated to helping you become a responsible gun owner. We will assist you in obtaining your permit, purchasing your first firearm, and we can provide additional training for skill development, home defense, and personal protection.

FTI limits the instructor to student ratio so everyone will have ample access to a certified instructor. After taking our class, you will be able to apply for a New York State Pistol Permit and will gain a comprehensive understanding of firearm safety, operation, and shooting fundamentals.


Topics covered include:
  • Firearm Components and General Knowledge
  • Safe Handling of Firearms
  • Ammunition Components and General Knowledge
  • Selecting the Right Firearm for You
  • Fundamentals of Pistol Shooting
  • Loading/Unloading/Making Safe Semi Automatics
  • Loading/Unloading/Decocking Revolvers
  • Proper Firearm Storage
  • and more...

Most instructors have a brief live fire period using only a few shots through a 22 caliber pistol. While this may be a good starting point to meet the minimum requirement, it does not prepare you for the vast array of firearms available. To make the most of this experience, we provide a number different firearms for everyone to try. All firearms are made available to anyone who wants to shoot them. No one is required to shoot anything that makes them uncomfortable. Here are some firearms that are most often used in the class:
  • Ruger - .22
  • Glock - 9mm
  • Revolver - .38 Special
  • 1911 - .45 ACP

New! SIRT Training Pistol
At FTI we spare no expense to bring you the best permit class in the state. We are the first in the region to utilize the new SIRT Pistol by Next Level Training in the pistol permit class. The SIRT Pistol uses a life size and weight frame equipped with a laser to simulate the shooting process, allowing accurate training exercises in a classroom setting. Sign up today to get your turn with the revolutionary SIRT Pistol.
