The director of state police is hereby authorized and directed to prepare forms for the licenses required under this chapter and forms for the application for such licenses and to supply the same to officials of the cities and towns authorized to issue the licenses.  The form shall require no more information than was required on the state of New Hampshire application for pistol/revolver license, form DSSP 85, as revised in December 2009.  No other forms shall be used by officials of cities and towns.  The cost of the forms shall be paid out of the fees received from nonresident licenses.
