    What Are the Gun Laws in Alaska?
    short answer no...
    Carrying
    Any person 21 years of age or older may carry a handgun concealed on their person provided that, when contacted by a police officer, informs the officer of that possession and allows the police officer to secure the handgun for the duration of that contact.
    If you are active duty, there may be a waiver...there is in a lot of states, I didn't see one for alaska, but that doesn't mean it's not there
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Hmm... I thought a permit wasn't necessary in Alaska. I think the age is 21.

    stan, a permit is not required, but if he wants to carry in a state that honors Alaska's concealed carry, he has the option of getting that permit, when he turns 21.

    BerneyG & CopperKnight got it right. I found that you should not depend on what someone tells you but much better to find the law as it is written. I've been mislead in a few conversations.

    Different in each state. In Ky 18 yr olds can carry in the glove box.

    As that reads, you would be OK... but I'd would want to see the all the laws pertaining to firearms before I'd tell you your OK to carry one in your car... but I'm no AK law expert.

    If I was you, I'd talk to an attorney. I think that you can; but, I haven't seen all the laws pertaining to concealed carry. I'm not a attorney either, so please spend a few bucks and talk to one.
