Alabama Gun Laws

Alabama concealed carry laws are liberal and allow concealed carry permits to be issued at the county level.  Applications can be made at the local Sheriff’s office in your county of residence. Applicants must be at least 19 years or older and meet other criteria although there is no requirement for a firearms training course. The application process in Alabama is fairly easy and the sheriff must either grant or deny your application for a permit within 30 days of your submission. Fees for new CCW permits and renewals vary across counties. Some counties will notify holders of permits that they are due for renewal, however there are also counties that will not contact you at all.
