Indiana Gun Laws

Indiana gun laws allow a License to Carry to be issued to residents and non-residents. There are two types of licenses available, a limited term and unlimited lifetime license. Non-residents can only obtain the four year limited license and they will normally be required to have a business or property in Indiana. Residents or persons in the military who are stationed in Indiana can obtain the lifetime license. The minimum age for applicants is 18 years or older. Indiana is a “Shall Issue” state.
