A Wyoming firearm bill of sale is a proof of purchase of a firearm that has been transferred from a private seller to a buyer. Both parties must enter their own personal information. Once a price has been agreed upon, the seller will record the purchase price as well as the make, model, caliber/gauge, type of action, and serial number of the firearm. The parties must declare they are legally allowed to sell/possess a firearm by signing the buyer’s and seller’s disclosures sections on the document. This bill of sale can be kept for each party’s personal records.

Concealed Carry Laws
Statute – § 6-8-104
Any person over the age of twenty-one (21) may carry a weapon (openly or concealed) without a permit as long as they meet the requirements set forth in § 6-8-104(b) (excluding paragraph (vii) of subsection (b); demonstrating familiarity with a firearm). However, non-residents (anyone who has resided in Wyoming for less than six (6) months) must hold a valid concealed carry permit from another state to be able to carry a concealed weapon in Wyoming. A concealed carry permit can be obtained if an individual wishes to carry a concealed weapon in another state (list of reciprocity states). To apply for the Wyoming Concealed Firearm Permit (CFP), the applicant will have to follow the steps listed below.
- A training course or participation in a firearms competition must be completed by the applicant. The state accepts any of the certifications mentioned in § 6-8-104(b)(vii). A photocopy of the certificate or affidavit from the instructor must be attached to the application.
- Download and complete the Concealed Firearm Permit Application; make three (3) copies.
- Visit the county sheriff’s office and hand over all copies of the application form and the certificate or affidavit of training.
- The sheriff’s office will perform a background check. They will charge a fee for this service as well as an application fee (fees are listed on the first page of the application form).
- A copy of the application will be given back to the applicant so they can visit a DOT Driver’s Services office and have their picture taken for the permit. This must be done within five (5) days of submitting the application.
