Anyone interested in applying for any firearms permits may obtain the necessary applications at the police dispatch desk. You must be at least 18 years old for all permits except that you must be at least 21 years old to obtain a permit to purchase a handgun.

If you have never applied for a firearm permit before, it will probably take about three months to complete the process. This is typically the length of time it takes the Federal Bureau of Investigations to process your fingerprints. If you have already received either a Permit to Purchase a Handgun or a Firearms Purchaser I.D. Card, it should take about a month.

Any questions concerning firearms permits should be directed to the Detective Bureau at 609-499-3131.
