    DOJ will not release the forms that you need to get, until Nov 1.
    When will they tell us what training that needed?
    Nov 1.
    Then they will be swamped with applications.
    They want to string us along as long as possible.

    I tried it today, and it works for me.

    1. go to

    2. Click on the box that says “concealed carry law” on the right side of the page, there is a pic of a handgun.

    3. Click on “application” which is toward the top of the page, under the large concealed carry law banner.

    4. Click on “concealed carry application form” about half way down the page.

    Also, if you are in need of a ccw class, many of the class providers will also have the applications available.
