Story County Sheriff's Office Procedure for Issuing Weapon Permits

The Story County Sheriff's Office shall issue weapons permits according to the following procedure:

All applications for weapon permits must be made in person at the Story County Sheriff's Office.

Permits will only be issued Monday - Thursday between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:00 pm.

Applicants will not leave the office with a permit to carry weapons in hand as processing may take up to thirty (30) days. Permits to acquire weapons will be issued at the time of application unless the applicant is disqualified. Permits to acquire will not be valid for three days.

Appropriate training certificates or a certified qualification score (in the case of a renewal) must accompany the applicant at the time application is being made.

When an approved application has been signed by the Sheriff or his designee, the applicant will be contacted and informed the permit is ready to be paid and picked up.

If the application is denied due to a disqualifier(s), the Sheriff will notify the applicant in writing the reason(s) for the denial.
