It’s essential to be aware of your state’s gun laws before purchasing a firearm or carrying it away from your property. You should also know about these regulations before attempting to carry a weapon over state lines. This information is vital for Alabama residents because even though the state doesn’t require a permit, states that you’re traveling to might.
Alabama has a population of about 4.9 million people, and 1.26 million, or 25.7%, have an Alabama Pistol Permit, which allows holders to carry a concealed firearm. Residents must be 18 to apply for one of these licenses, and the applicant can choose to keep the permit valid for one to five years.
You aren’t required to take a concealed carry education class before applying for your Alabama Pistol Permit, but it’s recommended because of the safety training it provides. Concealed Coalition has delivered firearm education for more than one million Americans, and we can assist Alabama residents in how to safely use their firearms. Contact us for more information on the training we offer in the state.
