HANDGUN PERMITS

HOW TO APPLY

Go online to https://firearms.ariesportal.com to begin the process of determining your eligibility and applying.

COST OF THE APPLICATION


Indiana collects two fees at the time of application. One goes to the State’s General Fund and the other goes to the local departments fund for firearms and firearm training.

WHO DO I PAY MY LOCAL/STATE FEES TO?

If you reside in the city limits, your local law enforcement agency would be the police department or town marshal of the city where you reside. If you reside out of the city limits, your local law enforcement agency would be the sheriff of your county. When paying your local fees bring a copy of your MorphoTrust fingerprinting receipt, your application number, and a photo ID with you.

Your state fees may be paid with a money order made payable to the State of Indiana or cash and then send in the mail to:

Indiana State Police - Firearms License
PO Box 3089
Indianapolis, Indiana 46206

AFTER APPLYING/ WAITING FOR YOUR PERMIT

It usually takes 4-8 weeks to process an application. With the increased demand due to the new lifetime licenses your request might take 12-14 weeks. If you are renewing a license they will staple your old license to your application (pink copy). If you keep them stapled and carry both then you may continue carrying a handgun until you receive your new license or your license is rejected.

MAINTAINING YOUR PERMIT

Take your new card and get it laminated. Notify the State of changes. If you change your name, address or are convicted of something that might change your eligibility you must notify the superintendent, in writing, within 30 days. You can (but are not required to) purchase a new license after an address change for a fee of $20.00 Know the local laws. Code on Regulation of Handguns (IC 35-47-2). Carry responsibly.
