Carry Handgun Information
Monday, February 8, 2016 due to the increased request for concealed handgun
permits, we are forced to go to a scheduling system. Monday through Thursday at 9:00 AM we will be
processing new carry concealed permits in 20 minute time increments. We break for lunch from 12:00PM to
1:00PM. We will then be processing
concealed handgun permits until 4:00 PM.
We ask that you call and schedule a time to complete the process. We apologize for any inconveniences but the
surge in permits has left s no alternative.
We thank you for your patience.
No appointment in necessary
for renewal applicants.
Note: On August 11, 2014, the Governor signed into law
that citizens with a CCW (Concealed Carry Weapon Permit) can purchase handguns
through dealers, using their CCW. It is no longer necessary for these citizens, who have already been approved to carry a concealed weapon to come to the Sheriff's Office to obtain a Handgun Purchase Permit.
To schedule a time to apply for a concealed handgun permit please call 336-242-2804 or 336-242-2071 between the hours of 8:30AM - 5:00PM, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
