    I went to buy a gun today and found out my CPL expired 8 months ago. Now I will have to wait for 5 days :( I plan to be in the Sheriff's office Monday morning to renew but I do not know if I'll get some kind of temporary license or just be out of luck until my new one arrives in the mail.

    BUMMER!!!

    Depending on your sheriff you may get it really fast or they could hold it for a while. When I lived in Renton, King Co., they held one renewal for 10 business days before mailing it out. When I renewed in Clark Co. on a Friday I had it in my mailbox here in Oregon on Monday. I have hear of some in the state walking out the door with their renewal.

    One more reason to love Oregon over Washifornia.

    No waiting period. and NFA weapons.

    Only thing Washifornia has over Oregon is better fireworks. Oregon's are pretty lame.

    Also; Washington doesn't have a lame gun show background check law. The WA CPL is less expensive than an OR CHL.

    I'd say Washington is <lame than Oregon in the issuing of concealed pistol licenses. At least a class isn't required for we in WA to exercise our 2nd amendment rights.

    :p

    AFAIAC they both suck...Only Alaska and Vermont allow residents to carry without a CCL, but they still have the federal laws to contend with. I think my birth certificate should be good enough to exercise my constitutional rights...the bad guys will carry anyway and if we would keep them in jail where they belong and stop prosecuting law abiding folks for self defense we wouldn't have the issues we do...

    Yeah, I walked out of the Deschutes County S.O. with my CCW license. But it took then over 6 weeks to get me in an appointment...

    Took care of my expired CHL this morning and it was like applying for a new one since mine had expired 8 months earlier. Even had to be finger printed again... They told me to expect it in 2-3 weeks.

    This time I'm setting up Yahoo Calendar to email me BEFORE mine expires!

    At least you didn't find out it was expired when a LEO asked to see it. :D

    You know, I have NEVER been asked for my CPL in all the years I've been carrying. I've told a few LEOs I was armed, even ridden in their car when I ran out of gas, and not one has asked to see my license. They had opportunity in Washington, Oregon and Nevada...
