ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) -- New York State Police wants to remind pistol permit holders of an upcoming deadline.
New York Pistol Permit holders who got their permit before January 2013 - must re-certify with authorities by January 31st 2018. If you fall into this category, and fail to re-certify, your license will be revoked.
NYSP says there is no cost to re-certify, and you can do so either online or by mail.
As part of the re-certification, permit holders must re-affirm that they're not prohibited from possessing firearms.
