Qualifying Requirements to Purchase a Pistol:

* No mental health problems
* Written approval of Tactical Officer (cadets only. Parents do not face this restriction.)
* Not a convicted felon
* Must provide the shipping address of a local firearms dealer who has agreed to receive the pistol and transfer it to the cadet, along with a copy of the dealer's Federal Firearms License (FFL).
* Any person (i.e. family members, etc.) who passes the background check and meets the above administrative requirements can purchase the class pistol.


We will ship the pistols as soon as we can after they arrive at West Point to the dealer provided by each purchaser. The expected delivery date is in early Spring. Unfortunately, no pistols will be transferred directly to cadets on West Point, due to safety concerns. All pistols purchased will be shipped to FFL-holders, who will then transfer the ownership of the pistol to the purchaser.
