Firearm Registration Forms
Vermont does not obligate its residents to register a gun upon purchase or inheritance of any kind. There is no need to acquire a permit to purchase, although, whether obtaining a handgun through a private seller or licensed dealer, one must undergo a background check. The open or concealed carry of a weapon does not require a separate license, but one can be applied to transport a firearm out of state within the boundaries of a participating reciprocity state.
