New Scheduling System
Effective 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 a.m. we will be processing new carry concealed permits in 20 minute time increments. We break for lunch from noon to 1 p.m. We will then be processing concealed handgun permits until 4 p.m.
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.
Renewal applicants please call the Sheriff's Office at (336) 242-2804 or (336) 242-2071 to schedule an appointment.
Purchasing Handguns Through Dealers
Note: On August 11, 2014, the Governor signed into law that citizens with a Concealed Carry Weapon Permit (CCW) 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.
