When to Renew

To renew your Concealed Handgun Permit, you may apply as early as 120 days prior to the expiration of your original permit. It is recommended to apply at least 30 days in advance of your expiration date.

Steps to Renew

The renewal application process requires the following:

  • A completed application (PDF) for renewal (this is the same form as the original application, but check the box that says renewal and write in your permit number).
    • Do not sign the application - applications must be signed in front of an authorized Sheriff's representative or a Public Notary.
  • A non-refundable check or money order for $63 made payable to the Gunnison County Sheriff's Office (This is for a simple background check and the processing fees - you will not be fingerprinted again) Please return the above items in person to:
    Gunnison County Sheriff's Office
    510 Bidwell Avenue
    Gunnison, CO 81230
  • Once your application for renewal has been processed and approved, we will contact you to schedule an appointment for taking a new picture and issuing the new permit.

Failure to Renew

Once your permit expires you are not allowed to carry a concealed handgun!

If you do not renew your permit within six months of expiration, the permit shall be deemed permanently expired, and to obtain a permit, you will need to re-apply by submitting a new application and all the appropriate New CHP Permit fees.
