I'm not slow or anything , but I can not find it here. There used to be a link of where to go to renew online. Somebody cleans house too much on this site. I have been to 1 website and there was no mention of such a thing.

Can someone tell me where to go to renew online?

Didn't know you could even renew online. The only thing I could find was this.
http://www.msgunowners.com/general-firearms-discussion-f16/need-to-renew-my-ccw-where-do-i-do-it-t6490.htm

There is a section in this that states:


(12) (a) The licensee must renew his license on or before the expiration date by filing with the department
the renewal form, a notarized affidavit stating that the licensee remains qualified pursuant to the criteria specified
in subsection (2) and (3) of this section, and a full set of fingerprints administered by the Department of Public
Safety or the sheriff of the county of residem~e of the licensee.
The first renewal may be processed by mail and the subsequent renewal must be made in person. Thereafter
every other renewal may be processed by mail to assure that the applicant must appear in person every ten (l0)
years for the purpose of obtaining a new photograph .

You did'nt get your renewal package in the mail?

How much does it cost to get an Individual Firearm Permit?
The fee for a first time Individual Firearm Permit is $132.00. The permit is valid for five (5) years. About 90 days prior to the permit's expiration date, a renewal package is sent to the permit holder. The renewal fee is $82.00. There is a $15 late fee for expired permits. A permit expired for 6 months or more is deemed permanently expired and the permit holder must reapply.

It says you can renew online everyother time, but no direction where to do it. Do you hafta submit new fingerprints as well?
It seems that the best thing to do is just go on to the MHP Substation for DL Renewal in D'Iberville (for you) and renew it before it is expired. They'll probably throw on some kind of "stupid tax " if it gets expired like the drivers license.
If it has to do with State or Govt. its always a PIA you know that.

I called the MS Dept of Public Safety (Firearms Permit Unit) and they said you cannot renew gun permits online. You get your renewal package in the mail and mail it back and don't have to be finger printed but every other time. They said you can go to the office and renew it but you would have to be finger printed every time. Either way the fee is the same $82. There is a $15 late fee for expired permits. A permit expired for 6 months or more is deemed permanently expired and the permit holder must reapply.

What I posted says you can renew by mail but doesn't mention online.

I know: It's an old thread, and there is another thread that mentions it, but there are some recent changes (yesterday):

Mississippi Department of Public Safety’s announces “Skip the Line” program at Driver Service Bureaus - WXXV 25

------------------------
Governor Tate Reeves said, “It just didn’t work right for the people of Mississippi. It was frustrating, confusing, and slow. Today, we’re announcing some new efforts to change that. It will help Mississippians to skip the line and get in-and-out quickly. That helps with COVID-19 safety. It’s also just better. It treats the people of Mississippi the way they deserve to be treated–with respect for your time and wise use of your tax dollars. I’m grateful to Commissioner Tindell and everyone who has worked diligently on this effort.”

Newly appointed Public Safety Commissioner Sean Tindell said, “We are committed to reducing the lines at our Driver Service Bureaus. Shortly after taking office, we identified several redundancies in our processes related to renewals of driver’s licenses and firearm permits. We have worked diligently to remove these redundancies, resulting in reduced processing times for customers.”

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety is excited to offer the “Skip the Line” program to customers.

The program includes several new components to reduce customer wait times.

Online Appointment System: Effective September 14, 2020, customers can schedule an appointment at the location of their choice in the Troop K (Gulf Coast) and Troop C (Jackson Metro) Regions. This feature will be available statewide on October 1, 2020. All appointments will be given priority service over walk-in customers.

Skip the Line Cam: Customers can view the lines at all major Driver License stations prior to arriving by visiting Department of Public Safety Driver Service Bureau. This feature will be available at all troop locations on October 1, 2020.

Online/Mail-In Firearm Renewal: Effective immediately, all firearm permit renewal applications will be mail-in only. Firearm permit renewal applications are available online at Department of Public Safety Driver Service Bureau.

This program will eliminate the need to renew in person and the requirement that customers be fingerprinted for a firearm permit renewal.

Removal of Alphabet Schedule: Effective October 1, 2020, all services (including processing of new firearm permits) will be available every day of the week.

-----------------------

Updated 8 Sep 2020 rules and forms (at my first fast perusal it looks like they deleted the fingerprint form but I don't see how to apply online):

I suppose a public announcement is easier and quicker that having elected legislators change MS law (code) ... JMO.

I'm just glad he did it---rather than waiting on the foot dragging Legislators to pass something.

Not many Governors would have had the fortitude to do it in today's climate.

Agree. Maybe the legislators were "too busy" working on the state flag non-issue ... <sarc>

After digging around on the forum I located the correct place for this question in the CCW area - my apologies.

Sorry for again resurrecting this very old post but I'm new here and can't find what I'm looking for to renew my CC firearms permit. The 17 page "instruction" is almost impossible to understand! I did not receive a renewal package in the mail however I moved 4 months before it expires. Maybe no forwarding?

I have a new DL with the new address which is the one thing I definitely got from the instructions but not much else is clear? Do all those affidavits have to be notarized and included? So from someone who has done this since Tater changed it what exactly goes into the renewal package? TIA
