Dallas County Sheriff's Office




Dear Citizen of Dallas County,

As of 8/28/07, due to changes in state law you no longer have to obtain a concealed weapon / handgun transfer permit at the sheriff's office.  These permits were formally required for the sale/transfer of these types of weapons.

Permits are still required for actually carrying the firearm concealed ("concealed carry permit").  These permits require special training and applications.  Please contact the sheriff's office for more information.

For questions on the requirements of transferring/buying a firearm, please contact your firearms dealer.  They can advise you of all ATF required information and criteria.


Thank you,

The Staff of the Dallas County Sheriff's Office
