    I have been thinking of getting my concealed carry permit since we need permission from our own goverment to carry firearms. My question is this: how long is a concealed carry permit good for? I don't know if this makes a difference or not, but I live in the state of Missouri.

    Thanks

    Makes a huge difference which state you're in

    You need to go to this site http://www.usacarry.com/

    Depends on the state, some are open carry without permits, Kentucky is one.
    Here's what usacarry says about Missouri

    Annual Renewal in Alabama...

    Apply in person first time, fill out paperwork then provide make/model/sn of a weapon once and background check each year and they renew by mail pay a $20.00 fee (at least here in Tuscaloosa, AL)...

    How does that compare to your state/local requirements for carry permit???

    $90 for an application ($80 for the app, $10 for fingerprints), $75 for renewal (no prints this time), good for 5 years.

    So its not that much cheaper here. But if you dont have to take a CCW course in AL, you actually come out a little better.

    There are very few positives about gun ownership in NY, but one bright spot is that my permit issued in Niagara County NEVER expires! My Non-resident PA permit expires in 5 years.

    Depends on the state.

    For example...
    CA = 2 years
    FL = 7 years
    MO = 3 years
    NV = 5 years
    UT = 5 years

    Look at it closely where it says "expiration date" and you will see.

    A Louisiana permit is good for 2 or 4 years, depending on how much you want to fork over to the state in application fees. Price is $50 for a two year permit, $100 for a four year permit. If you're over 65, cut the price in half.

    Only downside is that you have to retake the CCW case every time you renew, so figure $250 every four years to carry a weapon.

    $35 for the temp state permit
    $19.25 for the SPBI Background Check
    $35 for the permenant (5 year, renewable) State permit
    $100 (+/-) for the NRA Basic Pistol Course (Only needed for applying for the temp permit, which must be obtained before getting the State permit). Comes out to about $200 to get a permit. Renewals are $35 every 5 years.

    IMHO nobody should need a permit to own or carry a gun.
    The 2A states clearly that every citizen has the right to "bear arms".
    CCW permits are just a way to tax the people.
