Does anyone know of any good places near NYC where they train people in pistol handling? I am willing to travel upstate and to long island as well, but I don't want to exaggerate and travel for more than 2 hours. Basically, I am looking for a beginner's course - one that doesn't require you to bring a pistol in (since I do not have a permit yet).

thank you !

You can't handle a pistol in NY without a permit. So.... your best bet is PA somewhere probably. Taking a pre-licensing class should teach you our laws though. Lots of counties offer them.

I did, and most are Upstate or otherwise too far. That's why Im asking here.
You won't find much in or near NYC. For the simple fact that it is very hard to obtain a permit in NYC. If you get a dwelling permit, you should take a course that is highly recommended such as a home defense course. Also as said above most will require a pistol permit as a pre-requisite

good luck!
