    Not all of those guys necessesarily were real "sex offenders". Not all of them were necessarily child molesters either. Think about it.

    That paper designed in the 60s is part of why our permits are so cheap... But ya, they're cheesy.

    If you fold them in the right spot and trim them just right, you can laminate them to the size of a regular driver license, but it's a process.

    It's pretty irksome in a way in the other direction too. The ones you get from Florida have a photo, and are laminated and are thick like a driver's license. Less likely to lose and less likely to get damaged. But the total cost is $117, plus whatever you pay for fingerprints, picture at the drug store, and notary. When you look at that figure compared to what Arizona charges or New Hampshire, it's a big difference!

    i agree with you - on the other hand, i returned to WA from San Francisco, CA., and even King Co. is GREAT by comparison!

    i worked in a Lynnwood WA gunstore (Snohomish County) for about five years in the late 90's - early 2000's. i heard many stories about how long it took to receive the CPL after applying. Snohomish County typically took seven to ten days to arrive. the one time i applied through City of Edmonds, it took about a week. King County applicants nearly always had to wait virtually the entire 30 days that the issuing agency was allowed before receiving their permit. at the time i thought that anti-gun King Co. was just dragging things out as much as could on purpose. my thoughts have shifted, and now i suspect that it was just more applicants/fewer staff that caused the maximum wait. i could be wrong, however.

    and i saw a post on DC reasonably recently that WA was going to a laminated, DL-size permit.

    My first CPL was from Oak Harbor police and took 7 days from applying to picking it up. I will be renewing next year through the king county sheriff.

    A week and two days for a non-res!

    For those still following this thread:

    I guess I can forgive the state of Washington now for no longer recognizing Florida's permit (as of April) since it only took the state and Port Townsend PD less than two weeks to get my permit mailed down to the Republic of Texas. I'm quite pleased I'll be able to carry legally on my next trip to Puget Sound.

    Regards,
    TXCOMT

    The process took 28 days in Bellingham, Whatcom County. The "license" was kind of card board cheesy, weird size, type writer kind of thing; but I wanted to get it laminated. Bellingham is a liberal college town. I went to the local Kinkos, expecting the worst. The counter guy, younger than me but not a kid by any means, says "no problem, I see these all the time. I'll take care of it". And he did! Perfectly trimmed and laminated. So, I guess I'm not alone in this little college town; closer to Canada than anywhere else.

    New form?

    Dog, that's how my first non-res permit, issued by Tukwila PD, looked, too. The one I got yesterday looks much more official; I suppose the state figured it wouldn't kill 'em to make the things a little nicer. Of course, maybe some folks were counterfeiting the old ones...wouldn't be that hard!

    Applied for mine in downtown Seattle September 11th. I was guaranteed 30 days at the most. She said to call if it wasn't there by then. I got it earlier this month on 10/2. Paperwork said it had been approved 9/27 but apparently they use the slowest shipping method possible to actually get it to you after it's approved.

    Was this King County? If so, you'll be shocked at how well the renewal process works. My last renewal took all of 15 minutes.

    The 27th was a Friday, the 2nd was the following Wednesday... if they approved it on Friday, issued on Monday, and it went into the mail truck on Monday afternoon, I'd say that's pretty good...
