Due to the high volume of firearms license applications the Indiana State Police Firearms Section requests the following:

Please DO NOT request a status check regarding your firearm permit application unless the timeframe significantly exceeds the projected issue dates listed below.

Firearms questions can be directed to the Indiana State Police Firearms Licensing Section. ISP is experiencing a high volume of phone calls. If you are checking the status of your firearms application, include your full name, date of birth, and date that your money order was cashed.

ATTENTION: If you have already submitted a firearms application, the following timelines should be anticipated:

  • For those using Morpho Trust USA (formerly L-1 Fingerprinting Solutions)--10 to 12 weeks from the date your money order was cashed.
  • For those submitting paper fingerprint cards and applications--15 to 17 weeks from the date your money order was cashed.
  • If you have any prior criminal history, the above timelines may be extended until your criminal history can be reviewed. For the fastest response, we recommend that you submit your questions via email.
