1. A license to carry or possess a firearm or to purchase or take

pursuant to the provisions of this section.

4. Except for the designation of the superintendent of state police as

any other provision of law shall be applicable to individuals licensed
pursuant to this section. In addition all provisions of section 400.00
of this article, except for the designation of the superintendent of
