Conceal and Carry Permits are processed in the Administration Office, Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9 am to 3:30 pm (BY APPOINTMENT ONLY) (excluding state and federal holidays). When applying for a Conceal and Carry Permit, you will need the following items:

              Certificate of Firearms Safety Training Course
              Driver's License with current Barry County address
              Permit fee (see below)

Here are the fees for the type of permits we issue:
              New permit:                                          $100

It typically take about an hour to complete the application process for a new CCW permit or to transfer from any Missouri county.

If you are an Out Of State transfer, you will be required to take the Missouri CCW Class before we can issue a Missouri Permit.

The renewal process will take approximately 15-30 minutes.  


If you have a change of residence or a name change, or it is lost or destroyed, you must notify the Sheriff's Office within thirty days in order to update your permit. 


You should not expect to be notified when your permit is due for renewal. Conceal and Carry Renewals may be done within the month your expiration but no sooner. If you fail to renew before expiration date you will be charged an additional $10.00 fee per month for each month it is expired, up to $50.00 extra. 


Missouri does not accept out of state conceal and carry permits. If you are from out of state and need to obtain a Missouri CCW Permit, you will need to take a Missouri Conceal Carry class before you can be issued a Missouri permit.
