To schedule a time to apply for a concealed handgun permit please call 336-242-2804 or 336-242-2071 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
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 us 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.
