As of right now I am still live in Illinois, at least for the next couple weeks. I am moving to Indiana and was wondering what it takes to get a CCW permit. CCW does not exist in Illinois as many of you know. Can someone enlightem me about the requirements for CCW in Indiana. Thanks

It's really quite simple. Go to your local police department and fill out the application. It's $100 for a lifetime permit. They'll take your fingerprints there. Wait about 4 to 6 weeks and it comes in the mail from the State Police. No classes, tests, etc.

Welcome to a free state.

Just as long as they're gun friendly and don't think we run this State like IL

Actually it is $125 for a lifetime permit if you do not currently hold a valid handgun permit. The fee is $50 for the local PD/Sheriff and $75 for the state. For those current Indiana residents who hold a valid permit, the fees are $40 for the locals and $60 for the state.

And you don't necessarily go to the local PD, you go to your Chief LEO. In my case that's the county sheriff.

I spoke too quickly - both of these guys correctly added some additional info. All in all it is still a fairly easy process (compared to other states).
