How can I get a firearms permit?

Firearms permits are usually granted by a state licensing agency. In Maryland the Maryland State Police grant permits. You may download a handgun application from our documents and downloads section. The permit or licensing division in each state have different requirements. Some states require a qualification course of fire, which we provide. We will also walk you through the application process during firearms training. However, we can not gurantee that the licensing agency in your state will grant you a permit.

 

Is there any difference between the Florida and Utah state carry permits?

Each state has different laws on carrying a weapon concealed. While some advertise that the permit is good in “32” states or “15” states, each state has different requirements. We strongly recommend you check this information in order to obtain and carry a firearm state to state to remain in compliance with each state’s laws. Currently, Maryland does not recognize a carry permit with any other state. We do now offer a Florida Concealed Carry Class. which is also  an NRA Certified Handgun Course.
