North Carolina General Statute (Chapter 14, Article 52A, § 14-402 through § 14-405) decrees that the Sheriff of each county has the authority and responsibility to issue pistol purchase permits to qualifying residents of the county and to non-residents who are collectors. Additionally, the Sheriff of each county is tasked (Chapter 14, Article 54B, § 14-415) with the issuance of concealed handgun permits for residents of their respective counties.

The Alamance County Sheriff’s Office does not offer notarization services for forms; please seek a notary (such as at your bank) before turning in your application.
