Some mobile devices (especially older models) do not allow all features of the website to be available. This will vary from model to model. The result may be messages indicating that a license type needs to be selected. It is advised that you submit your firearm application from a desktop, laptop, or non-mobile device to prevent this from happening.
You may use your application number and password to check your status at the following site: https://firearms.ariesportal.com/?login. Alternatively, you may bring your driver’s license or state ID to your local law enforcement agency or the Indiana State Police at the following address: 100 North Senate Avenue, 3rd Floor, East Wing, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204. If you have further questions you may contact the Indiana State Police Firearms Unit at: FirearmsQuestions@isp.in.gov
Once you have submitted the firearm application, the license type cannot be changed. When you visit your local agency, you will need to inform them of the mistake. The agency should collect the fee for the license type you actually meant to apply for and contact the State Police and the license will be changed. If you paid online, you will be invoiced for the additional state fee.
Contact your local law enforcement agency. They are able to update all fields on your application. Your other option is to send a notarized letter to the Indiana State Police indicating the mistake and correction that should be made to the application. This letter can be mailed to the following address: ATTN Indiana State Police Firearms Licensing Unit at 100 N. Senate Avenue, Room 302 Indianapolis, Indiana 46204.
If you reside in the city limits, your local law enforcement agency would be the police department or town marshal of the city where you reside. If you reside out of the city limits, your local law enforcement agency would be the sheriff of your county.
If you are a resident of another state and have a regular place of business or employment in Indiana, you qualify for a 4 year personal protection firearm license. Your local agency will be the sheriff of the county in which you have a regular place of business or employment. You will be asked to upload the following documents on your application:
1. Print, complete, sign and notarize the Out-of-State Affidavit form stating you meet out-of-state residence requirements.
2. Provide a proof of employment on company letterhead.
For NEW applications, if there are no mistakes on your application and you have no criminal history, your license should be issued within 60 business days from the time your local authority submitted your application to ISP.
If a balance amount is owed, a money order must be made out to the “Indiana State Police Department.” The payment should be mailed to the Indiana State Police Firearms Licensing Unit at 100 N. Senate Avenue, Room 302 Indianapolis, Indiana 46204.
