How to Obtain a Concealed Carry Permit

To lawfully carry a firearm in a manner not deemed as “open carry”, a concealed carry permit can be obtained from the local sheriff’s office. The term “concealed carry” refers to carrying a firearm that is out-of-sight and not perceivable within plain view. Additionally, this permit will allow for reciprocity for out-of-state travel in many U.S States, per Wyoming state law (W.S. § 6-8-104). Once authorized, a permit is valid for a total of 5 years from the date of issue.

To acquire a Wyoming concealed carry permit you will need to obtain the following materials to deliver in-person to your local county sheriff’s Office:

  • Three copies (including the original) of a completed and notarized Wyoming Concealed Firearm Permit Application (Form Rev-8-18).
  • Valid proof of residency for a term of at least six full months in the state of Wyoming.
  • Established familiarity with a firearm via sufficient evidence of completion of an accepted gun or safety course, program or class as outlined in VII of CPF Statute § 6-8-104.
  • Submission of documentation of applicant’s fingerprints to be taken and certified by a law enforcement officer of the state (additional fee may apply).
  • A cashier’s check or money order for $64 to be paid for a non-refundable permit fee as well as a $15 fee to be made payable to the sheriff’s Office.

After properly applying for the permit, a copy of the application will be provided for you to take to your closest Wyoming Department of Transportation facility to have your permit photo taken. You have a window of 5 days to have the photograph taken to be entered into the system to avoid re-application. Upon applying, keep in mind, the process can take a total 0f 2-3 months before you will receive confirmation.
