New Permits:

Please contact the Columbia County Sheriff's Office for an application.

Existing Permits:

The Columbia County Clerk's Office has just implemented their new pistol permit software. Paper permits have become a thing of the past. Our new system issues durable plastic card permits.This change will make carrying your information easy and convenient. The card easily fits into your wallet as it is about the size of a standard credit card. Photo, signature, and fingerprint requirements are obtained through the state of the art software and then printed onto your new permit. The durability of the plastic cards will increase the life of your permit and make the information readily available and easy to read and understand.

We are currently in the process of adding information to the new system. If you would like to have a new card issued, please call the office(518) 828-3339 for an appointment. You can also download the necessary application for a replacement card here.
