    Question Regarding Maine Law (not really OC)

    I will start of by saying that this is not really an OC question, but it js Maine specific so i thought this would be the place to post it (correct me if im wrong). I generally OC, but am putting in my application for a Maine non-resident concealed carry permit for those times when OC isn't practical (Idaho honors a permit from Maine and it would save me the trouble of jumping through the may issue hoops of Idaho because I am not 21). On the application it says that you need to include a color passport photo (2x2). Do I have to file for a passport, wait for that to come, and then send a copy of the photo to the Maine State Police or is there an alternative photo I could use.

    Go to Walgreens/CVS and ask to get a passport photo taken. Its like $10 for 4. It's just a passport sized photo. It's used as a standard size.

    Eta: walmarts do them too

    Both times I've renewed my permit I've taken and printed the photo myself. Just has to be a 2x2 inch photo of your face. It doesn't have to be your passport photo, it just has to be a 2x2 passport "style" photo.

    I've only gotten a resident Maine one at local police stations(Biddeford and then Windham) and Biddeford didn't want my photo and Windham never asked for one. I assume the state police actually require one then? Or maybe they were afraid my ugly mug might damage someone's eyes if they ever saw my pictures in a file and weren't ready for it. Lol.

    It could be something strictly for nonresidents. I won't be able to just walk in and take care of things, so they want something more to identify me. I don't know, though. That's purely speculation.

    State police requires it for sure for both res and non-res.

    The only towns to my knowledge that don't require it are ones with paper permits and no photo.


    Eta: of course that doesn't pertain to NR permits since all NRs go through MSP

    As others have stated you can just take the photo yourself. I took mine and my girlfriends photo, There are specific guidelines you need to follow however which are outlined here:

    and here:

    I touched them up a little in photoshop.. Took out the shadow from the flash and such and just printed them out on a 4x6 sheet of photo paper centered in the middle.
