To get your firearm back, you must complete a Law Enforcement Gun Release (LEGR) Application [PDF 297 kb / 2 pg] and send the application along with the appropriate processing fee to the Department of Justice. Each State will have they're own applcation. Please check with your local enforment for this information. The processing fee for a Law Enforcement Gun Release Application is $20.00 for the first firearm (long gun or handgun), and $3.00 for each additional handgun listed on the application. If the court or agency in possession of your firearm determines that the firearm was reported stolen, the fee for the stolen firearms(s) will be waived. You must send documentation from the court or agency confirming that the firearm was reported stolen along with the Law Enforcement Gun Release Application to qualify for the fee waiver. Once DOJ receives your Law Enforcement Gun Release Application, a firearms eligibility check will be conducted to determine if you are lawfully eligible to possess firearms. You will receive a notice of the results. If this notice states that you are eligible to possess firearms, you then take the notice to the court or agency in possession of your firearm to claim it. The notice must be presented to the court or agency within thirty (30) days of the date of the notice. Failure to do so will result in the need to submit a new application and fees to undergo another firearms eligibility check.
Typical DOJ processing time for a Law Enforcement Gun Release Application is four to six weeks.

This course meets all classroom requirement for most states, nationwide. In most states you do NOT have to have live fire. You do have to have firearm safety training and have knowledge of gun laws, by a certified firearm instructor. If your state is more strict and you need live fire, no problem. You can take our course online, then go shoot live rounds with a instructor. We find that online learning is great for the fundamentals and to build a solid foundation, but we encourage everyone to seek solid training in personal as well.
This is an alternative from the typical live class. Its still faster and cheaper...And much, much better I might add!
