Missouri Concealed Carry

Begin your journey to safely carrying a firearm for self-defense with the guidance of professional instructors from ASA Public Safety. This comprehensive course covers laws, personal liability, the use of deadly force, basic safety, and weapon maintenance. Our instructors are well-versed in firearm-related topics and are available to answer all your questions. The course is designed to provide hands-on experience that exceeds state requirements, preparing you to carry a firearm for self-defense safely. 


The 8-hour course costs $95.00.

To ensure your safety and comfort, we use a state-of-the-art Virtual Simulator in the classroom to acquaint you with the operations and shooting of a firearm before introducing you to the live-fire range. Sign up now and let us help you apply for your MO State Handgun Carry Permit. 

Please note that MO Constitutional Carry does not provide reciprocity with any other state, and it is not recognized for non-MO residents. The MO Concealed Carry Permit, on the other hand, allows concealed carry and entitles the permit holder to carry any legally owned handgun. It also offers reciprocity in 38 other states. 

To obtain the MO Concealed Carry Permit, you must take a State Certified 8-hour class, 

Items Training Participants Are Responsible For:

You will need a reliable handgun (rentals available if needed), 50 rounds of practice ammunition (available for purchase if needed), and eye and ear protection.  

Once you have completed the Handgun Safety Course and obtained the necessary documentation, you must visit your local policing agency (ie. Sheriff or Police Headquarters) to apply for the permit. The application process includes providing proof of United States citizenship or lawful permanent residency, payment of fees, providing an electronic signature, and registering your fingerprints. 

Please allow the State at least thirty (30) days before you check on the status of your application. You are not legally aloud to carry in other states until you receive your permit. It is your responsibility to keep your address current with the issueing agency of your county, and you are responsible for renewing your permit before it expires. 

Remember that a permit to carry a handgun is not a license to use deadly force, and it comes with significant legal and financial responsibilities.
