"The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government."

- Patrick Henry

An advanced training course has been developed in Saratoga County, NY which is now a prerequisite in obtaining an Unrestricted New York State Conceal Carry Pistol License. 

Saratoga County, NY

​Advanced Unrestricted Pistol License Class

SaratogaCCW is proud to announce a formal
pathway for Saratoga County residents and
NYS Pistol License holders to acquire an
Unrestricted NYS Pistol License. 

From its creation SaratogaCCW has stressed
the need for formal and proper education for
all who wish to daily concealed carry.  Yes, 

carrying a firearm is a right granted to all of us
by our countries constitution, however we here at SaratogaCCW believe that in todays day and age it is a responsibility that cannot be taken lightly.  Carrying a concealed firearm is a real responsibility that will change your life.  By carrying a firearm daily you assume the responsibility for taking care of yourself and your loved ones above all others.  Not relying on someone else to constantly take care of you and your protection.  Evil exists in this world, and we are the first line of defense against those who wish to do us harm.

Please note that this Advanced Class is brand new and is due to evolve over time.  It is likely that new class locations and course content will eventually 
​be available.
