Concealed Handgun Permit

To get a Concealed Handgun Permit, first fill out the Concealed Handgun Permit Application (PDF) (last revised July 16, 2020). Attach a copy for verification of safe gun handling: i.e.:

  • Certificate of Gun Safety
  • Hunting License
  • Military DD214
  • Prior Permit

We also need a copy of your state issued Driver’s License. Bring these items along with your application to the Sheriff’s Office. Once your background check has been complete, you will be called in a few days to pick up your application at the Sheriff’s Office. 


Next step is you take your application to the Mathews Circuit Court Office to apply and pay the application fee. For fee pricing please contact the Mathews Circuit Court at 804-725-2550.
