***ATTENTION PISTOL PERMIT HOLDERS***
As of 1/3/2017 the NEW YORK STATE POLICE will begin mailing a letter to pistol permit holders whose permits were issued prior to 1/15/2013. These permit holders have until 1/31/2018 to re-certify their pistol permit with the NEW YORK STATE POLICE. Pistol permits issued on or after 1/15/2013 must also re-certify their pistol permit with the NEW YORK STATE POLICE within 5 YEARS of the issued date on the permit. The website for re-certification is https://firearms.troopers.ny.gov/pprecert/
You can also re-certify through the U.S. mail by filling out a paper form available at https://troopers.ny.gov/Firearms/ any New York State Police location, on our website under Forms and Links or at the Onondaga County Clerk's Office.
