    Pistol permit renewal today = easy

    I know Alabama ranks almost dead last in a lot of categories like education, income, and such, but sometimes I am reminded why I love Alabama.

    Today I had to renew my permit. I drove 4 miles to the local sheriffs office annex, walked up to a window (no line, no waiting) and plopped down $17.50 for a two year renewal on my permit. 3 minutes later I walked out legal till Groundhog Day 2017.

    Yep, I like it.

    Should be that easy in all states (if required at all). Mine in Ohio is good for 5 years though.

    If it don't seem like it's worth the effort, then it probably ain't.

    Mi. is good for 5 years $105 renewal, same as a first go around

    Then wait supposedly no more than 45 days.

    Hardy the deal you got, but it is what it is.
    Indiana has it the best I've seen with a lifetime permit

    Geez! No shots fired? My renewal generally runs $60 plus ammo since I have to re-shoot the qualification course each time.
    At least your state starts with an 'A' which is cool in my book.

    No, you can go to 5 years for $50. I chose 2 years, I think I had a reason, but I can't remember it now. I guess I'm just cheap.

    Gotchya. Yeah, ours is good for five years at just more than that price. Yeah, cheap is good, I don't get a discount for renewing my state electrical license for one year compared to three so I do it one year at a time.

    $15 a year up here in Marion county , got mine last year for the 5 year stretch felt like a waste of $75 to me for something that is a protected right to begin with but I'm not locking my gun in the trunk every time I get in the car because otherwise i'm illegally concealed with out the stupid permit

    We're lucky (well, if you call having to have a permit lucky), Indiana offers a Lifetime.

    Wonder why it's more in Marion county? I'm in Jefferson county. Given our financial woes, you'd think we'd be more than anywhere.

    If we went by the U.S. Constitution there would be no need for a CCW permit !

    It's $10 per year here in Madison County. Just about as fast, too.
