Firearms Safety Training Course

ALERT: Effective January 4, 2021, a new Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) began offering handgun transfer services to the public. Pursuant to D.C. Official Code § 7-2504.10, because there are now active FFLs offering services to the public, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) will no longer provide handgun transfer services. All new FFL business will go through private FFL dealers. All business originally received by MPD will be completed by MPD.

Completion of this Firearms Safety Training course will satisfy one of the requirements for firearms ownership under District of Columbia law. There is no cost for taking this course and it should take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
