    What were the requirements to obtain your permit?

    This is strictly just a general question for my own knowledge. I just wanted to see what some of the requirements are across the country.

    You do not have to go into great detail just the number of hours in class and the range requirement if any.

    I can assume a background check and fingerprinting.

    I had to stand on a mountain top, naked, facing East while juggling three chipmunks.










    OK, for real, I had to have 12hrs of instruction and shoot a target a couple times but I can't recall how much or how far away it was.

    Lightweight.

    Here we had to use 6 honey badgers and 2 running chain saws while spitting fire with grain alcohol.


    That and 8 hours of class time learning the laws governing the use of deadly force and the laws concerning concealed carry. Also gun safety and function along with nomenclature and shooting in general. (Stance, grip, sight work, etc) After the class room portion was a shooting proficiency test of 30 plus rounds from 3, 5, and 7 yards.

    I had to drop off an application at the sheriff's office with $20. A few weeks later, a permit showed up.

    A well padded (lots of good stuff) DD-214 and a simple NRA refresher course (Pistol and Revolver).

    I just can't for the life of me understand how they will not let me carry a M-2 .50..............................

    Too hard to hide I guess. Though I have the wife trained to carry the tripod and T&E!

    NH

    Filled out application w/personal info. No pics or prints. Listed 3 character references (they didn't get called).

    $10 admin fee to my local PD.

    3-days later, PD calls me and says it's ready.

    Good for 4yrs.

    Still an unconstitutional restriction.

    This is for the State of Ark:::


    NICS/Background Check:
    The Arkansas State Police performed a name based check through the Arkansas Crime Information Center (ACIC), the Interstate Identification Index (III) and the National Instant Check System (NICS). The fingerprint card is forwarded to the FBI and they perform a nationwide fingerprint based search.

    Permit Valid For:
    The permit is valid for no more than five (5) years.

    Processing Time:
    It depends on your criminal history and the quality of the fingerprints submitted. If you do not have a criminal history or any kind, the process will take a week longer than it takes to get the FBI results back (Usually 4-6 weeks). The process may also be delayed if your fingerprints are not of high enough quality to be accepted y the FBI. If your fingerprints are rejected an additional submission time (4-6 weeks) would be necessary.

    If you do have a criminal history it may take longer to obtain dispositions or review the arrest or conviction information in the file. . If any further information about your charges is needed then ASP will send you a letter specifically outlining what you need to obtain.

    Cost:
    Separate checks are no longer required. The amount is $144.25 (application fee $100.00, state background check $25.00, and the FBI background check $19.25). You may send a check or money order payable to the “ARKANSAS STATE POLICE.” All fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.

    Requirements:
    1. Resident of Arkansas
    2. At least twenty-one (21) years old
    3. A U.S. citizen
    4. Satisfactorily completes an approved firearms safety program
    5. Submits fingerprints and a fee determined by the Department of Public Safety
    6. Does not fall into a class of person prohibited to possess a firearm, such as a convicted felon, adjudicated mental incompetent, or illegal alien.
    7. The completed application and all required documents must be mailed to this office within six months from the date of training.

    Required Documents:
    1. Original completed appliation
    2. Fingerprin card

    4. The completed “Certificate Of Training” form from the Concealed Handgun Carry License Firearms Safety Instructor dated within the last twelve (12) months.
    5. If your license is not expired, send a check or money order for $60.00, payable to the “Arkansas State Police”. If your license is expired less than six months, add an additional $15.00 fee.
    If your license is expired over six months, you will not use this form, but will need to begin the application process with a new application and not a renewal.
