    WA State CPL - Still just 30 days

    I took my paperwork down the the local sheriff's office this morning. Our CPL form is 3 pages, not front and back. Normally one has to make an appointment, but I went at a good time. I wrote a check and did the fingerprinting. That's it. The clerk told me that I would probably pick up the license in three weeks, but that it won't be valid until the full 30 days.

    It's my first CPL, so I don't know much about what others have to go through in other states.

    All I need now is a decent AIWB holster for my SP101 (I'm thinking a Remora or a Mr. Softy) and I'm golden.


    Cheers

    I went to the place that's in front of the County City building, I forgot the name I had it now for about a year and a half. They sent mine in about three weeks but they didn't say nothing about full 30 days. So what kind of gun are you carrying if you don't mind me asking?

    Will be carrying a Ruger sp101, and I am very much looking forward to it.
    I just picked the revolver up the other day from DJ's in Bothell. I have yet to look for ammunition. Hopefully that won't be a problem.

    You have any trouble finding rounds for your pistols?

    I'm glad you think 30 days is great to get "permission".

    I think that 0 days i.e. no permission required, is far better.

    We need to raise our sights a bit here.

    No offense.

    I'm glad you shared your helpful opinion.

    Actually I think 30 days is an awesome amount of time given what some have to go through for theirs.
    Do I wish it were shorter? I honestly don't care.

    Preacher, nice to live in a "must" issue state ( not that we don't have our problems). Headed in tomorrow to the sheriff's office for my third renewal . Welcome from the dry side.

    Here in FL, the times for original permits and renewals changes depending upon the number being processed (obviously)...could be a few months or a few weeks. My last renewal was only 10 days door to door.

    The average down here is the full 90 days. Gives one lots of time to find a holster, safe, ammo, etc.

    Last year my wife and son applied (not renewals) at around 9-10am at our local Sheriff's Office, they picked up their CPL's the next day about the same time....so ~24hrs turn around. This was in Eastern Washington.

    LuvMyPX4, this is how I'm thinking too. I have thirty days to choose a holster (Not an easy feat!) and ammo.

    I applied and received my permit recently , 21 days from doing paper work to my mail box.
    The clerk that did my paper work and finger prints, did reminded me,not to carry until I had the permit in hand.
