Broome County Concealed Carry Course approved by presiding Judge. The course is a pre-requisite to requesting the CC .This class is approved per vendor-IPI-VERDAD Investigations and Protection, Inc. is an approved vendor.
Are references asked to affirm their county of residence? I know people who are listed on the Broome County voting rolls but have declared Delaware county for property tax purposes. Does the sheriff ask references to state their county of residence or do they determine county by using the voting lists?

I also mentione d my shooting experiences and that I joined the Northern Westchester Rifle Association shooting club.
The wait was 6 months.
