Default Both Revolvers And Auto Pistols Are Rquired Here

Here in my neck of the woods in upstate New York, we are required to shoot both types of handguns to be covered fully. We have asked the same thing about one type (handgun) covers all, and the instructors say we have to shoot both or only the type qualified with will be listed on our HR-218 card. I don't mind doing both, but it is expensive. One good thing about this qualification is that it exempts us LEO'S from NYS permit laws, and if/when the law changes here in New York State on Jan 1st, 2018 and the state takes over the pistol permit system, and rumored limits of X amount of handguns that can be owned/possessed on one's permit becomes law, we as LEO'S can keep what we have, and not have to surrender any revolver or auto pistol over the limit as long as we maintain our certification.
