Hey guys, I am coming home (STL) at the end of August. I already have my FL. non resident permit, and am wanting my MO. A couple of questions. When and where are the classes? How much (cost-wise) is it total? How long does it last? (I am going on a cruise in 09) <---- no, not a cruise ship, a different kind, with a flat top and some wires over it. I can deal with my FL until I get out, but would like to carry here in SC, while I am here. Thanks,

Pat

John Ross (of Unintended Consequences fame) runs a CCW class...

www.john-ross.net/ccw.php

I took his class, very interesting guy, one of the important players in the fight to get CCW in Missouri. Also, after the range session you get a chance to shoot some of his full-auto toys.

The only draw back is you have to drive to Grafton, Il for the range session.



Bull's Eye also offers a class...

Specifically the permit. And how much does the permit cost? Why do they not offer anything special for persons in the military? That pisses me off.

The permits are good for 3 years. The cost of the permits varies by county, but I don't think it can exceed $100. I haven't had to renew yet so I don't know what renewals cost, but they are cheaper than the initial permit.

Between the cost of the class and the cost to get a MO permit for the first time, it'll probably cost you around $200 with a maximum of probably $225.

Sorry, your question was going over my head for some reason. My mind is on the weekend already, I guess.


BlueNoteExpress covered it.


I filed mine at St Louis County (in Clayton). It was $76. I'm guessing I'll have to pay something at the DoR for a new ID when it clears.

Renewals are $50 for another three years. I took my class with Duke_Nukem and highly recommend him if the others dont work out.

Does anyone have a list of states that honor MO's CCW.

Thanks Aug223

it looks like I will just wait until I get out. If Obama hasnt revoked them all by then. I just dont have enough time and cash available when I am home on leave. But some good news, my mother did just go and qualify for hers, but she is retired LEO, so at least I know she is safe.

Well, to start, here's a good place to check for states that MO has reciprocity with.
