Wyoming's statewide population is estimated at 522,830, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. And just over two percent of that population are packing concealed guns.

There are 12,287 valid concealed firearm permits in the state, according to the Wyoming Attorney General's Office.

Wyoming issues concealed firearm permits pursuant to W.S. 6-8-104. This statute authorizes attorney general to issue permits to carry a concealed firearm to persons that qualify. The attorney general was assigned this task as of October 1, 1994.

In 2007, there were 1,716 new application permits issued, along with 1,285 permit renewals. Four permits were revoked in the state, with two cancelled. The number of permitted carriers is up from just over 11,000 in 2006.
