Conceal Carry Permits
Updated CCP/COVID-19 Processing Guidelines
Based upon the increased level of COVID-19 cases, CCP will be closed to all new applicants until at least February 1st of 2021, with the effective date of December 14th at close of business with option to extend based upon the pandemic.
Individuals with appointments scheduled through December 14th will be processed as normal, but all others will be handled through our COVID Protocol (which will be mail-in ONLY).
ATTENTION ALL CONCEALED CARRY APPLICANTS:
Effective January 1, 2017 unless you are traveling to a state that requires a Missouri Concealed Carry Permit, you DO NOT need to purchase a Concealed Carry Permit.
House Bill 656 Allows Concealed Carry in Missouri without a permit requirement.
In an effort to alleviate long lines and handle each applicant in a fair manner, all concealed carry processing is handled by appointment only. Therefore, due to the high call volume, please call at least 3 months in advance. In addition, as confidential information is collected, only the applicant will be allowed in the processing room, and children may not be left unattended.
No children are permitted in the processing area, and children may not be left unattended.
To Make an Appointment
All calls are taken Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (excluding holidays). Please call 816-541-8017
and then dial Ext. 72223. We are not open on weekends or evenings.
Any qualified firearms safety instructor may choose to submit his/her information to be added to the MOSMART Data Base of qualified instructors. To do so, they must be approved by the Sheriff's Office of the county in which they reside and pay an annual registration fee of $10 (payable by check, money order, or cashier’s check). Your annual instruction paperwork is due January 2nd of each year. For a list of the requirements, you can request them from our office.
