Learning the laws regulating the use of firearms is a must for responsible ownership. Local regulations differ and laws vary from state to state. Citizens must check with the jurisdiction where the gun is to be used.
The Sheriff and his staff are required to follow strict state guidelines when performing the necessary background checks for Concealed Weapon Permits. Due to the nature of the detailed due diligence, appointment times and processing times can take multiple weeks. During the application process, you will be asked to schedule an appointment (for New and Renewal CCW permits). Depending on the current volume of CCW requests, the earliest appointment may be 4 - 8 weeks into the future. Please note that you will be asked to pay now to reserve your appointment.
Concealed Weapon Permits can be obtained from the county sheriff of your county of residence.
If you are RENEWING a Concealed Weapon Permit, you MUST apply at least 60 days PRIOR to the expiration date, but no more that 90 days prior.
If your permit has EXPIRED, but it has been LESS than 60 days since the fee is $90.00.
If 60 or more days has passed since your permit expired, you must apply for a NEW permit. You must also submit a NEW Training Certificate and NEW Fingerprints.
