Q:  What is the process for obtaining a Pistol Permit?

A:  You must first fill out a pistol permit application and return it to the Legal Services Division, Civil Office at the Sheriff's   Office.  Applications are available at the Civil Office and on our website.  Once the application has been turned in or completed on line, the applicant should check back with the Civil Office in about two weeks.  At that point a background check will be done on the applicant.  Once this process has been completed and the applicant has not been found to have any serious criminal convictions in their history, the applicant will be able to come to the Civil Office where a pistol permit will be issued.  The cost of a permit is twenty dollars and it will be valid for one year.
