Department of Justice FSC

Effective January 1, 2015, the Handgun Safety Certificate program was replaced with the Firearm Safety Certificate (FSC) program. Under the FSC program, requirements that previously applied to handguns only now apply to all firearms. 

A valid Handgun Safety Certificate can still be used to purchase/acquire handguns only until it expires. For long gun purchases/acquisitions made January 1, 2015, and thereafter, an FSC will be required. Once an FSC is obtained, it can be used for both handgun and long gun purchases/acquisitions.

Countermeasures Firearms Training can provide you with your FSC if you desire.  The cost of the certificate and test is 20.00.  We do not charge students who have completed our NRA basic pistol course, for this certificate.
