Lets get a thread with every resource needed for your particular state to get a conceal carry license. List all the websites a person would need to visit, and how much money would be required. Hopefully we can get this thread with all states (that allow CC) and can be used as a resource center for those considering getting their CHL.

I will start with Arkansas.

Washington State Department of Licensing:
http://www.dol.wa.gov/business/firearms/faconceal.html

$52.50 for first time license, $32 to renew after that.

You just go down to the police station, fill out the form, pay the money, and give some finger prints.

It is mailed (by law) within 30 days. Renewals must be in person.

State of Florida (a "shall-issue" state):

The site is easy to navigate, and fairly clear. In a nutshell, $112 gets you your license and covers the FBI fingerprint/background check. The license, good for more types of weapons than just firearms, is valid for seven years. Renewals are about $60, if I recall correctly.
Training requirements are easily met by an approved class, military background (DD-214), law-enforcement or armed-security training, and even some approved hunter-safety courses.

ccsniper,

You stated: IFAIK handgunlaw.us doesn't link to each states government that issues the license/permit.

I do believe each states page links to the issuing authority, State Statutes, Application and Instructions if available, State Administrative Rules which are usually held by the Sec of State which is why a link to the Sec of State is also listed. Attorney General, states list of permit/licenses they honor if a list is made available on a state website. The St issued CCW Pamphlet if available. What other things can I link to for info provided by the state?
