Today is the deadline to recertify your New York State pistol permit if you were issued the permit before Jan. 15, 2013.

If your permit was issued on or after Jan. 15, 2013, the deadline to recertify is five years after the date the permit was issued. Pistol permits in New York must be recertified every five years, in accordance with the SAFE Act, which was signed into law on Jan. 15, 2013.

The New York State Police website offers the following explanation for the required recertification:

“The goal of this provision is to improve the recordkeeping of both state and local authorities. For example, under the current system, if a person with a permit passes away, no action is taken to update records to reflect that this permit is no longer active. By going through this process every five years, redundant or out-of-date records can be eliminated and the accuracy of recordkeeping can be improved.”

More than 370,000 pistol permit holders in New York were notified about the recertification process by letter one year ago.

If you already submitted your pistol permit recertification, you can check the status of your recertification here.
