I know not about your states current qualifications @ this time, but once you
have obtained a permit, (as a general rule)... renewals are a "piece of cake"!
In Idaho, the renewal of my drivers license & carry permit falls on the month
of my birthday every 4 years! I have been a resident of Idaho since 13 oct
1990, yet I did not apply for a carry permit until the fall of 1997 when my
"Whacky cat hoarder" neighbors started teasing my dog & threatened to kill
me! My response to their threat drove them to the next county & they are
still known as the "worst cat hoarders" in Idaho state history!
