RSA 159:6 authorizes the Chief of Police of the Derry Police Department to issue a resident of the Town of Derry, upon application, a permit to carry a pistol or revolver. Applications may be obtained at the Derry Police Department. A $10.00 fee must be paid when picking up your permit. It will take approximately 14 days to process the application. You will need a picture identification and proof of residency when you pick-up your permit. No one else can obtain your permit for you. When issued, the permit will be valid for a period of five years and may be renewed during the permit holders birth month. The valid permit authorizes you to carry a firearm concealed while traveling within the State of New Hampshire with certain specific limitations.
