    - I had to attend a free class offered by the local police, it was a 3 hour class and there was no shooting or testing required.... all you had to do was show up and they printed you a certificate and then i took that in and paid $33 (or somewhere near that) and waited about a month and a half and i got my approval and then all i had to do was go in and pay about $22 give or take a few bucks and they gave me my permit which is good for 5 years

    im just cuious to what all of you had to do in order to get yours.

    oh and you can also get one if you have taken hunters education or some other form of firearms training like the military or LEO. They also said that you can get one if you have been active in shooting competitions but im not sure of the exact requirements

    WA state

    go into sheriffs office, get fingerprinted, pay $55.25
    wait 30 days
    shows up in the mail and is good for 5 years.

    $32 renewal fee

    I think its in the works that ccw are going to be national - like drivers licenses - given by your state but accepted by all.

    I took a 3 hour class, which was really just 3 of us hanging out, shooting and complaining about illegal immigration. Then I turned in my application, which by law has 30 days to be completed. I told them I was going out of town, so they had my permit ready the next day. It's good for 5 years.

    I simply had to fill out the application and send a copy of my Florida "G" Firearms license (for work), picture and prints.

    My wife had to take a CCW course in addition to the application, pics and prints.

    * take nra-approved safety course. no shooting but written test.
    * take the class certificate to the sherrif, get booked like a criminal, pay $60 something, and wait a while.

    then i went to clark county sherrif in WA state, filled out the form, got booked again, and that one showed up in a couple days.

    Pennsylvania (in my county)

    Go to the county courthouse and fill out an application with the std. are you a felon, insane, indited on any felony accounts, etc. type of questions. Have your picture taken (no finger prints) and pay $47.

    No mandatory gun courses or classes. Wait up to 45 days for the permit to arrive at the courthouse then go pick it up.

    It's been about 20 days, so far for me.

    $50 for a Dept of Safety approved class(4 hr) with common sense test and shooting 48 rds hitting 36. I believe that the distances were 24rds @ 7 yds, 12rds @ 10 yds and 12rds @ 15 yds.
    Then pay the State $115 application fee and have a picture made. Then had to go to another location to have fingerprints taken.
    At that point the state has 90 days to issue the license. My wait was about 45 days. License is good for 4 years with $50 for renewal.
