Indiana License to Carry Handgun (LCH) Online Course

Coming Soon!

Indiana Concealed Carry Permit

Indiana residents must obtain a License to Carry Handgun (LCH), while non-residents must have a valid state license to carry. There are no requirements for firearms training for the Indiana LCH which allows for open, concealed and locked-case carry. Applicants must be Indiana residents or have a regular place of business or employment in Indiana.

Indiana Resident Requirements

  • Applicants must be at least 18 years old
  • Must be a citizen of the United States, or not a citizen of the United States but allowed to carry a firearm under federal law
  • Has a proper reason for carrying a handgun (i.e., “for the defense of oneself or the State of Indiana”)
  • Is of good character and reputation
  • Is a “proper person” to be licensed (more information on this definition can be found here)
  • Not convicted of a felony or violent crime

Qualified residents are eligible to receive a lifetime qualified license or a lifetime unlimited license. Qualified licenses are issued for hunting and target practice, whereas unlimited licenses are issued for the purpose of the protection of life and property.
