Gun Registrations & Purchase Permits

If you have a valid concealed Pistol License (CPL), you will need a sales record instead of a purchase permit. You may pick this up at no cost.

You can apply for a purchase permit or pick up a sales record Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, between the hours of 8:00am to 4:00pm.
