Obtaining a Gun Permit

How to apply for a handgun permit:

 To apply for a firearm permit, go to the Indiana State Police website at  www.in.gov/isp, and apply online. Applicants will be required to pay any state fees online and schedule an appointment to have their fingerprints scanned at one of the Central Indiana IdentoGO sites, which will be made available during the online application process. 

 IdentoGO: 877-472-6917 or https://in.ibtfingerprint.com/

 After you have successfully completed the above process, you will need to go to the local law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction where you live to have a criminal history check and pay any applicable local fees. (For example, if you live in the city limits of Lebanon, you will need to come to the Lebanon Police Department.) Please bring a valid photo I.D. with your current address. 

 Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 am – 4 pm. We close for lunch between 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm. Our office also follows the Lebanon City Holiday schedule.

 Local Fees:

 Lifetime Permit: $50.00 cash (EXACT change only) or credit/debit card;

 Lifetime w/ Current Permit: $40.00 cash (EXACT change only) or a credit/debit card;

 *As of July 1, 2020, there are no state or local fees for a 5 year permit. 

  

Once you have created an account through www.in.gov/isp, you can use it to check the status of your permit, order a duplicate permit, or change the address on your current permit.
