How To Get an Arizona CCW Permit

The State of Arizona respects the right for people to bear arms. At 18 years of age, anyone who legally possesses a firearm may open carry and at 21 you can conceal carry. Although you can carry a concealed weapon without a permit in AZ, there are many reasons to get an Arizona CCW (Concealed Carry Weapon). These include reciprocity in 37 other states, the ability to conceal carry in more locations, and additional legal protection if you ever need to you use your weapon for self-defense.

If you want to earn your CCW permit, these are the steps to take:

Meet the Arizona CCW Requirements:

Before you can become a CCW permit holder, you must meet certain requirementsunder Arizona law. These include:

  • Residency. You must be a legal resident of Arizona or a citizen of the US.
  • Age. You must be either over 21 years of age or over 19 with proof of military service.
  • Criminal Record. You may not have any indictments or convictions for felony offenses.
  • Mental Health. You must not have any mental health conditions that caused you to be either deemed mentally incompetent by the state or committed to a mental health institution.

Take a CCW Class

If you meet the preliminary requirements, your next step to earning an Arizona CCW is to take a firearm safety class, pursuant to ARS (Arizona Revised Statutes) 13-3112.

At The Hub, we offer training that fulfills the Arizona CCW requirements. These four-hour classes cover laws and firearm safety. In order to take our class, you must be able to load and unload your firearm and have basic shooting skills. However, if you are a complete beginner, we offer 101 classes that will teach you the basics of operating a gun.

Final Steps and Arizona CCW Renewal

Once you complete your CCW class at The Hub, we will help you send your fingerprints, background check, and CCW application to the State of Arizona. After this, the state will issue your CCW permit. Your Arizona CCW is good for five years before you will need to renew it. However, if you want to get the most out of your gun ownership and have peace of mind that you can protect yourself and your family, we recommend continued firearm practice. At The Hub, you can make use of our MILO Range in order to keep up your tactical gun skills.

Hard-to-Find Guns and Gun Parts

Certain guns and gun parts are hard to find at traditional gun stores. This is especially true of items controlled by the NFA (National Firearms Act). This US law regulates the sale of certain firearms and firearm accessories. These regulations include silencers/suppressors, short-barreled shotguns (SBSs), short-barreled rifles (SBRs), and machine guns.

At The Hub, we specialize in NFA-controlled items because we know that many collectors seek out these guns and accessories for their collection. We also carry AR- 15s and AR-15 parts in our gun stores. If you’ve been searching all over for that one hard-to-find gun or part, visit The Hub! If we don’t have what you need in stock, we will work with you to find out how we can get you the item you need.
