Gun Permits
If you are a resident of the state of Indiana, in order to obtain a carry permit you must go to the Indiana State Police website to complete your application online and schedule for electronic fingerprinting. Your application will be reviewed by the chief of police, and if your background check is clear he will sign off on your application via the website. If approved, you should receive your gun permit within 30 days after you pay the local fee and complete your fingerprints at the MorphoTrust/L-1 location you have chosen.

Permit Options & Costs
There are two main options for handgun carry permits:
  • A four-year license is $49.95 ($10 cash or check payable to the Fishers Police Department for the local fee and $30.00 payable with a credit card while filling out the application online to the Indiana State Police).
  • A lifetime license is $134.95 ($50 cash or check payable to the Fishers Police Department for the local fee and $75.00 payable with a credit card while filling out the application online to the Indiana State Police).
  • A $11.95 charge will be added for the electronic fingerprinting to all applications.

*If you are renewing your application and the current handgun license has not expired, there is a price difference for the Lifetime application. It will be $40 cash or check made payable to the Fishers Police Department for the local fee and $60.00 payable with a credit card while filling out the application online to the State of Indiana.
