Sheriff’s Office issues pistol permit recertification reminder

Sheriff Todd Hood would like to remind all citizens interested in recertifying their handguns to visit troopers.ny.gov/Firearms/pistol_revolver_license_recertification.php. If the permit was issued before Jan. 15, 2013, the deadline to recertify is Jan. 31, 2018; if the permit was issued on or after Jan. 13, 2015, the deadline is five years after the permit was issued.

It is the responsibility of the permit holder to recertify whether a notification letter is received or not.

The sheriff’s office has made pistol permits accessible at the sheriff’s pistol permit webpage located at madisoncounty.ny.gov/1494/Pistol-Permits. The website has detailed instructions on how to obtain a pistol permit, who is eligible to apply and how to add or delete a handgun.

There are also downloadable forms to transfer a handgun, co-register a handgun and to request exemption from public records. For more information, call the pistol permit office at 315-366-2406 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4 p.m.
