    They may have anticipated a surge in out-of-state applications, so they needed a large influx of cash to hire additional staff to handle the increased workload.

    500% sounds like a lot but when you are talking $20 to $100, give me a break--this is not an assault on gun rights. If it had gone ot $500 or $1000, then it is an argument, but $100---puleeze.

    I have my application filled out and a check written for $100 for my renewal. I also have my son's ready to go. $20 or $100 I don't care. I have a need for it and it covers the areas that other cheap permits won't. Plus there are no hoops to jump through to get one. They go in the mail tomorrow!

    $100 is more than it costs the state to run a background check, print a permit, and mail it out. The increase in price could price some people out of right-to-carry.

    The FBI currently charges local LE agencies $19.75 for the fingerprint check. Add to that another $10 or so for the production and mailing of the physical permit, and another $10 for administration and record keeping. Total cost to a LE agency would be approx. $39.75. I can understand adding an additional $10 or so for future "unexpected costs" like the need to hire more personnel to process applications, update computer hardware, etc. Total cost shouldn't exceed $50 or so for a 5 year permit. They could even give residents a break in the form of a reduced cost or longer valid time frame. Any more than that and I feel the government is ripping off the citizens.

    I hope that the Vote them out mentality eliminates the demacratic majorities here in NH. Would be nice to have our state back.

    I'm relatively new to this site, but I have one simple question to ask; Why or what makes a permit from New Hampshire so important? If your home state's CCW is accepted in 36 different states then why bother with a Non-Res. permit from NH?

    In my case my SC CWP doesn't cover GA, AL or MS. I travel in those states so my NH non-resident permit covers me.

    My Pa. license is now good in NH. It was good when I renewed it 3 years ago, but NH gave me a few more states. I have since gotten my Utah non-resident which gives me what NH did plus more. It only cost $65.00 for the license and it is only $10.00 to renew. I must add, though, that the class for the license was $85.00, which is a 1 time fee.
