  • Alaska Pistol Permits

    Once you have gained your residence in Alaska is it diffilcult to obtain a pistol permit?

    Permit? Are you talking concealed carry, or ownership?

    A permit is not required for either.

    However, if you want a concealed carry permit for use in other stares, you just sign up for a class, get fingerprinted, and submit paperwork to the Troopers.. Takes a couple weeks.

    Again, no permit is required to own a handgun, and, within the state, any person who can legally own a firearm can carry it concealed without a permit.

    (Except of course in the standard no-carry places like schools, federal buildings, etc)

      Ahh, I wasn't sure if it was like New York State. So, you don't need to have the permit. Good enough.

        Just wondering if I have to have a permit to purchase a handgun once I have my residence or is it that I can go to a gun shop in Alaska and purchase a handgun like a long gun. Seems I would feel more safe in the bush with back-up.

          There is no permit required to buy any gun in AK... as long as you are a resident of Alaska you can walk and purchase one. The only paperwork is the federal paperwork that you would have to do anywhere. Your not in a gun hating state any longer...

            Federal paper work (meaning the background check), like when you buy a rifle?

              Yes, the same form you do when buying a long gun. Then the dealer makes a phone call and assuming everything is good you get to buy the gun.

                This has no bearing whatsoever on hunting.

                  That is what it is all about.

                    I apologize, but I just had to know if I could cover my b*** in the Alaskan woods. I do understand.

                        I'm quite sure an Ak driver's license is all that's necessary not a year of residency to clarify a resident in this instance

                          Completely different than NY. I had a concealed carry permit in NY, long process.

                            What is nice about getting a CCW permit here in Alaska, is that you can request to be NICS exempt, which is a BIG plus when you want to purchase any firearm.

                              Contrary to all the latest reality shows (supposedly) about Alaska, there is not a dangerous beast behind every tree. However, a can of bear spray may be a better bet if you are scared of what may lurk in the woods.
