Alabama Concealed Carry Law

Alabama gun laws state that anyone over the age of 18 can possess a firearm without a permit as long as they are not in the proximity of a demonstration or the barrel of the shot gun or rifle is not sawed off or short.  Additionally, persons must not have a criminal record, a documented history with drugs or alcohol, or have mental-stability problems.  It is, however, against the law in Alabama to carry concealed without a permit.

To apply for a concealed carry permit in Alabama a resident must apply for the permit at the Sheriff’s office of the county where they reside.  The applicant must present good reason to fear injury to his or her person or property or must demonstrate some other proper reason for requiring a concealed weapon permit.  The Sheriff will then conduct an investigation as to whether the applicant obtaining the permit would be a violation of state or federal laws prior to issuing the permit.  This method is subjective and does not guarantee that you application will be approved.

But this is not the only way to obtain a valid concealed carry permit in Alabama.  Fortunately, there is an easier way.
