I don't have a problem with having a permit but I do have a problem with the cost lining the sheriffs pockets. The permits have a different cost depending on the county and are not uniform in design.

I dont like that it costs same no matter how many years you buy them.  If I buy a 5 year permit, it ought to cost less than 5X a 1 year permit.

Its a whole lot easier to get a pistol permit in madison county than it used to.  Used to, you had to go yo the courthouse downtown every year.

Madison County is the same, if you choose to pay extra. $10 a year for a paper license, $20 a year for the card.

I think AL passed a law a few years ago that active or retired military can get the permit at no cost, but I don't know how the program works.

Detailed on the MadCo Sheriff's department web page. https://www.madisoncountysheriffal.org/page.php?id=15

Basically Go by the Sheriff's department show your credentials and they provide a code for you to use on your on line application.


No Cost Pistol Permit for Retired Veterans


Alabama legislation HB42 signed by Governor Bentley on 8/30/2016 went into effect on 11/1/2016 and will now allow all retirees from active military duty in the Army, or the Navy, or the Marine Corps, or the Air Force, or the Coast Guard of the United States or any reserve or National Guard component, to receive a pistol permit at no cost to the retiree. The following requirements will be necessary to secure this permit:

1.     Bring proof of military retirement to our office by display of a United States Veteran ID card or a DD-214 Proof of Military Service Form. You must be a resident of Madison County.
2.     Upon verification of your retired military service, you will be issued a coupon code to enter in our Pistol Permit website to secure your five-year paper Pistol Permit at no cost.
3.     With your coupon code go to www.madisoncountysheriffal.org and click “Pistol Permit” tab on the left and enter the Pistol Permit application process. If your permit is expired or you are a new applicant, click NEW. If you are a renewal click RENEW. Your application submittal allows us to conduct a background check on you. When prompted to pay, enter the coupon code. There will be no charge for the five-year paper permit (normal cost is $50). Please allow 30 days for the background check to be completed.
4.     Once notified you have passed the background check, return to our office to be issued a permit. Please bring with you an Alabama Driver’s License or state ID card to verify your residence and identity.
5.     You must renew online upon expiration to maintain the no cost permit.
