If you applied at the courthouse downtown Seattle expect it to take the full 30 days. I got mine from them about 15 years ago and it took the full month, that was before this crazy rush so they are probably burried up to their eye balls in applications. I accidentally let that permit expire and never got another one until about a year and a half ago, for that one I went to my local PD (Bellevue) and went through the whole process again and got it in the mail about two weeks later. When you do phone in just be sure to be friendly, if you you say it's been 30 days and you have to make a decision it is easier for them to deny you than rush to approve it. Good luck!
Considering Seattle Mayors as long as I can remember have been very hostile to the concept of CCW, I somewhat doubt this is an accident.
Fortune favors the bold.
Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.
The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)
Applied for mine on a Last Friday, and it was in the mail the following Tuesday......3 business days. That's Kitsap, also have a friend in Snohomish that got his in 2 days. King must have some high volume. Also, My permit looks very different from my buddies. His looks like he typed it on a typewriter, and mine looks more official. Would like to have a photo permit like some states get though....oh well.
There are four boxes to be used in the defense of liberty: soap - ballot - jury - ammo
“The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie: deliberate, continued, and dishonest; but the myth: persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.”
-- John F. Kennedy
The price of liberty is, always has been, and always will be blood: The person who is not willing to die for his liberty has already lost it to the first scoundrel who is willing to risk dying to violate that person's liberty! Are you free?
