In California, Los Angeles, all of our permits are overseen by a state agency called BSIS (Burea of Security and Investigative Services) to get an exposed firearm permit you need to take a 14 hours, ( 8 hrs trainging course and 6 hrs quailfing at the range, get live scan fingerprints which run about $115 depending where you go (which includes a $32 DOJ fingerprint processing fee and a $19 FBI fingerprint processing fee, both due at tiem of livescan), and pay $80 application fee for exposed firearm, $ 38 for firearm elegibility application. total is about $283. and its good for 2 years, requiring 4 requlifying in that time period, two a year at least 4 months apart. Then there is exrtra permits that require extra money, ex: guard card, baton permit, tear gas/pepperspray/oc permit.  For more info check out BSIS.CA.GOV
