    In Indiana, it's $30 for 4 years or $75 lifetime. Indiana also accepts any license or permit from any other state.

    In Ohio it's good for 5 years. Can be renewed twice for five years each. Upon the third renewal (15 yrs) you have to be recertified and take the CCW class again.

    Here in Minnesota there is no lifetime. The permit is $85.00 first time, $75.00 renewal and the class must be taken every time and it is good for only 5 years. These are the prices for my county they are different in each county.

    Every five years here in Washington. No class, even with the first time permit. I can't remember exactly how much my renewal was, but I am guessing in the neighborhood of $50. to $60.

    the class i went through in kentucky taught the legalities of shooting someone in my state... and also it touched on safety a tad. then we had to fire 20 shots at a silhouette target from 21 feet away. as long as 11 shots it the man in the target you passed..... so after i hit enough i started shooting at the little marks instead of trying to hit center mass. also there is no restriction on the gun you have to use verses what you can carry. i took the class with a ruger blackhawk 357 mag and can carry anything i can get under my coat. but i can open carry without the license so prefer to do so. the license is mainly for when i go visit the wife's family in northcrackheadalina

    Tenn made me jump through all kinds of hoops, at 3 places. Once at dmv, once for prints, and a class,even though I've been shooting since I was 9.

    In GA we just apply and pay $76 (up from $35), then off to the Sheriff's dept. to get fingerprinted. Pass the background check and it arrives in the mail in less than 2 weeks.
    Renew every 5 years, not sure if that's at full price or not.

    Yup. 5 years in Ga. Good thing about GA is it is a will issue state! When I was in VA, from what I gather, they don't have to issue if they don't want too.

    By the way, CONGRATS!!!!!!

    In Alaska it's for five years then renew. They aren't required
    for concealed carry but the permit is very useful for travel to
    the smaller states.

    Got mine in '93. It cost $95 and took 6 months to get it. It now takes a year or more to be processed (just in my county). They drag their feet because they can.

    No expiration, but can be revoked by our government at any time.
