Obtaining A Concealed Carry Permit For Firearms In Arizona


Visitors: 188

Anyone who legally owns a handgun in Arizona may wear it on their person to most places provided it is easily seen. To obtain a concealed carry permit however, a gun owner must obtain a Concealed Carry Permit, or CCW.

An applicant must first complete an 8-hour training course certified with the State of Arizona. There are many such courses registered with the State. Many larger gun clubs offer their own classes, as well as assistance with required paperwork.

After completion of the course, the applicant must submit information for a background check. A part of this involves completing a fingerprint card and providing it to the FBI to check against a national database. The card should only be completed by a professional finger printer, never by you. County or city police offices provide this service on various schedules.

The application must be completed within six months of taking the course. The applicant must be 21 years old or over, a U. S. citizen, have no felony convictions or misdemeanor domestic violence convictions, not be a fugitive from the law and not have been dishonorably discharged by the armed forces. Mental illness and illegal substance abuse can also bar you from receiving a CCW.

If your application is accepted, there is a $65 fee to obtain your permit. Law enforcements officials have some special exemptions that make it easier for them to obtain a CCW.

The CCW lasts 5 years. The renewal process is similar to the application process but one must only take a 4 hour refresher course.
