If your license should be EXPIRED there is no penalty when renewing. Be aware the State of Ohio only allows you a 30 day grace period to still be able to carry on an EXPIRED LICENSE. It is your responsibility to give yourself ample time to renew your license to avoid a lapse in coverage under Ohio's Concealed Carry Law.

  • We DO NOT accept Cash, Credit/Debit Cards, or Personal/Business Checks
