Missouri Sheriffs to Begin Issuing Conceal Carry Permits August 28th

Pursuant to SB75 which was signed into law by Governor Nixon, responsibility for issuing Conceal Carry Permits as well as renewal of Conceal Carry Permits will transfer from the Department of Revenue to local Sheriffs on August 28th.

Persons making application for a new conceal carry permit, or renewal of an existing conceal carry permit should submit the required fees and paperwork to the Sheriff of the county in which they reside.

Upon completion of the required background checks successful applicants will be issued a concealed carry permit by the Sheriff of the county.

Conceal Carry Permits issued August 28th and there after will be valid for 5 years at which time they will need to be renewed.  Any conceal carry permits which have not been renewed after 6 months will be voided.

Permits which were issued prior to August 28th, 2013 will still be valid until their expiration date, at which time the holder will need to renew their conceal carry permit with the sheriff of the county in which they reside.

Records regarding conceal carry permit holders are Closed Records, as such unauthorized release is a Class A misdemeanor.

Change or Name, change of Address as well as lost or stolen permits will need to be reported to the sheriff.  Upon notification, the sheriff will issue a new permit with updated information for a fee of $10.00.

Original application fee for a conceal carry permit cannot exceed $100.00, renewal fee cannot exceed $50.00.
