I am currently serving in the Armed Forces (or National Guard) and hold a Nonprofessional Permit to Carry Weapons. Can I use my military service record to renew my Permit to Carry Weapons?
Possibly. Given the requirement that any of the acceptable forms of training must be completed within the 12 months prior to the expiration of the current permit, it is possible that military small arms training and qualification could be used to renew a permit, but it depends on the timing of the training.

Please consult with the Sheriff of your county of residence to discuss the details of your service record and your application.
