A firearms license is required to possess or carry firearms in Massachusetts. Due to COVID-19 and social distancing considerations, we will only be taking renewals through the mail. Please fill out the application completely. Incomplete or false information may lead to the application being rejected and the loss of the application fee. Enclose a check for $100.00 made out to the Town of Windsor for the permit fee. We will call you to review your application after submission. You do not need a new photo for the permit - it will be taken from the RMV photo on your driver's license. Please mail the application and check to The Windsor Police Department at 1890 Route 9, Suite 3, Windsor, MA 01270.
The application can be found here.
