  3. I have had my permit here in NY for some time but I used your calculator to see how much the actual costs would be. 272.75 is what it would cost me today and does not include the gun or ammo. Ouch, what happened to will not be infringed????

    MA is $100.00 now. It used to be $25.00, but the SOB's here need the money and figured the added cost would dissuade folks from applying. Ahhhh nope... Business is good.

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    PA: $25/ 5 years. No class, no prints. Applied on a Monday, came through my mail slot the following Friday. Some counties print them right there while you wait.

    Isn't it funny how they think increasing costs on a carry permit would reduce the number of permits applied for, yet they never seem to make that same connection when they want to raise your income/ sales/ corporate/ capital gains/ etc. taxes?

    Ahhhh Yup... There be no logic in it. I try and resist the urge to pay, but there are costs for that as well..

    I'll have to amend my cost analysis. Add $50.00 for the NRA basic safety course. I could not find the old document from my original one...

    So MA $150.00..

    Yeah, it is a lot of money to pay for a Constitutional Right.

    The hidden costs, miles driven to and from for going to the County Office, NRA Class, back and forth to the dealer etc is exactly what I am talking about. Some of the reply's so far show the difference between a shall issue and a may issue state.

    When you hear politicians and groups like Bloomberg's start talking, hold on to your wallets.

    We live in a Democratic, Federalist, Capitalist, Republic... Money makes it go round...

    Infringement, no profit can come from that. I see it here in MA, and I mentioned it above, business is good.

    Ammo prices at Wal-Mart went up.

    Peace...

    My local PD offers the class to qualify for a Class A LTC at no charge. If you live in MA, check with your local PD. The class here fills up every month, 3 months in advance (25 attendees each class). The wife and I took it last year....even though I didn't need to....spousal support. Needless to say, the class is in very high demand. When we went last year, there were about 8 or 9 females ranging 21 yrs to 55 yrs approx. That was good to see.

    In Texas it's the same statewide, no permit needed to purchase handguns (min age 21) or long guns or ammunition. Permit is needed for concealed carry (CHL) and is open for those 21 years old. Active duty military can get a license at age 18. I don't remember if the state charges for active duty military.

    There is a records check: health/emotional/mental, financial, criminal records.

    For the first timer the state gets $140 for the CHL for four (4) year license. Military vets get 50% discount off the state's licensing fee.

    Course costs vary but generally run about $100.

    Two passport style photos run about $10.

    Pistol qualification requires 50 rounds about $10 (9mm). Qualification must be with .38 caliber or larger. Qualifiy with a semi-automatic and can carry semi-auto and/or revolver. Qualify with a revolver can only carry a revolver. Once qualified can carry .22 and larger.

    Finger prints are taken at the local PD for $10.

    First timer about $270-$300 for a four year license less the cost of the handgun.

    Rules for renewals keep changing but are to the benefit of the applicant.

    Another benefit of the CHL is shops are not required to do a records check if you have a valid/current CHL. Some of the big box stores, like Academy, run the records check regardless.

    TX CHL for me was $125 for the course and all photos, fingerprints, forms, etc. including a BBQ lunch (we're in TX you know) and because I'm over 60 half-price on the license was $70.
    The 50 rds of .40 ammo to qualify was about $17 at Walmart and the Glock: priceless
