How do I apply for a concealed pistol license?
All fees for concealed pistol licenses (CPL's) are received at the time of application. THIS FEE IS NON-REFUNDABLE.

The State will only allow CPL's to be renewed within 90 days of the expiration date. CPL's that have expired may also be renewed up to 90 days after the expiration date, but a late fee will be charged. Any CPL that is 90 days past its expiration date will require the application for an original license again.

All original CPL applications require fingerprinting, regardless of whether you have been fingerprinted in the past or not. Fingerprinting is conducted during normal business hours Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Fingerprinting is also conducted after hours by appointment only. However, please note if we are dealing with an offender in our booking room during these times, fingerprinting could be delayed or even cancelled/rescheduled. Please call before you come to our office to confirm the availability of this service at 509-382-2518.

Original license - The fee for original licenses is $49.25 (includes the cost of fingerprinting.)

All CPL applicants receive an information packet containing current laws and regulations regarding carrying concealed firearms.

* NOTE: Fees can be remitted in the form of a personal check or money order payable to the Columbia County Sheriff's Office, credit or debit card, or with cash. If paying with cash, we ask that it be for the exact amount, as we do not have the capability of making change. A service fee of $1.50 to $1.75 will be charged to your debit or credit card by our service provider, GovPayNet, of which we have no control over.
