    Contact them. They are either suppose to deny you or give it to you. They gotta have some reason

    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!

    I still highly suspect this wasn't a workload issue. I suspect the actual check just takes a minute to run the search on the computer. My bet is they only process them around once a month, or actually sit on them for almost a month.

    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.

    Depends. Many of us got ours inside a week. May depend on the county.

    But to your point....that's why I call total BS on the long waiting periods in other states.

    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.

    You should always be friendly, but WA is a shall-issue state which requires cause to deny you. Being a jerk isn't listed as a valid cause.
