How do I get a permit to purchase a weapon?

The Sheriff's Office has an application that must be completed and signed. The applicant must have photo identification when the application is returned for processing.  There is a $25 fee and the permit is valid for 5 years after date of issue. Completed applications may be dropped off, along with $25.00, at the Washington County Sheriff's Office, Monday through Friday from 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M., except holidays.  Beginning January 1, 2018, a State issued plastic card will be mailed to the address provided on the application, directly from the State 10-14 days (maybe sooner) after the application is processed.
