    Question CCW Process

    I imagine most every state is different in it's applying for CCW, but as most of you know, Kansas has decided to allow CCW in the near future.

    Now I am not looking for specifics, but I am curious what the general process getting a CCW is. How does one apply for CCW? What are the typical tests and classes? ect.

    Once again, thanks in advance.

    Edit: Apparently I cannot spell today or I wouldnt of screwed up my thread title. Sorry about that! haha.

    Tros:

    BTW - Welcome, and congrats on Kansas CCW! Grew up near Salina too.

    Check the Kansas Secretary of State's website - the State Attorney Generals' too, as well as the Department of Safety or KHP. I am not familiar with the administrative process in Kansas, but one of those will probably administer part of the process, or be able to guide you to the right place.

    Try this too:

    In AZ, we just go to the local range and take the 8hr class ($80). Then they give you the paperwork (you enclose $65) and then you send it to DPS. The permit took about a month.

    Sounds like you got all the specs for KS. Here in TN, the license is under the authority of Dept. of Safety.
    Here's how I did mine:
    1). Pick up the application at a driver's testing station.
    2). Sign up for the next permit class at my favorite range.
    3). Attend the req'd class (about 4 hours long) and take the common sense quiz.
    4). Go down to the range and qualify with 48 rounds (anything in the black on the silhouette counts as a hit - 70% needed to pass).
    5). Take training certificate, application, birth certificate and $114 back to driver's testing station. Wait around for 2 hours until they call my number.
    6). Have typical mug shot quality pic taken.
    7). Go back home and wait for the permit to come in the mail (about three weeks).
    If the KS course is like everyone else's I talked with, you'll breeze through it.

    I am glad you are looking into KS ccw. The more the better. BTW-I stopped for gas in Salina once and they were the nicest people.

    In Ohio:

    Find an authorized instructor--Must be NRA certified or Law enforcement. Not sure of the LEO requirements, NRA class is the Basic Pistol, with a bit of extra. Must be 12 hours total, with at least 2 hours range time. No mandatory accuracy, instructor's judgement.

    My instructor provided applications, photo, completion certificate. Take the certificate to the Sherrif's office (either your home county, or any adjoining county) where you get fingerprinted and photographed. Some counties are walk-in, others require appointments.

    Wait. They have up to 45 days to issue, if they take longer they have to issue a temporary emergency permit. Varies greatly by county--My home county averages 39 days, state average is about 19.

    Sherrif's office will call, pick up the permit.
