Requests for Concealed Permits Declining in 2017

Fewer South Dakotans are requesting concealed carry permits, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. According to the South Dakota Secretary of State’s office, while there were 5,833 applications for concealed carry permits in February 2017, there were just 1,331 in July. As of July 2017, there was a combined total of over 95,000 concealed pistol permits, enhanced permits, and Gold Cards.

An enhanced permit allows the gun owner to also carry in five reciprocating states and requires classroom and gun range training. Traditional concealed carry permits are valid for five years.
