How do I obtain a concealed-carry pistol permit?
Concealed Pistol permits are issued through the Police Department in the Town where you reside. The cost of the permit is $10 and is valid for five years from the date of issue.

In order for Bow residents to obtain a pistol permit, an applicant must provide his/her driver's license with Bow as the primary address, be at least 18 years of age, and have a criminal record check free of felony convictions. The Police Department will obtain a criminal record check on the individual, and note any felony or violent crimes that may prevent the issuance of the permit. Domestic violence related crimes or restraining orders may prevent the issuance of a permit.
