Hey, everyone. I'm new to this forum and have a somewhat annoying experience to share. Just thought I'd vent a bit and see what others had to say. So, on Thursday, March 1st, I ordered a SIG P2022 from a site called Top Gun Supply. I looked around at nearby FFLs and decided on a pawn shop by the name of Sound Loan here in Everett. Called and made the arrangements, the gun was shipped out on Friday, and on Monday I got a call saying it had arrived at the shop. I went in and filled out my paperwork, paid the transfer fee, etc. The guy at the shop told me it usually takes about a week, that the Everett PD is usually pretty quick but that, as of recently, they're now required to send part of the paperwork out to be done in Olympia, and that that has slowed things down a bit. This was in the afternoon on Monday, March 5th, so he said the paperwork would go out in the mail the next day (Tuesday, March 6th). Now, I've read the WA handgun laws, so I knew that LLE has five business days to either issue a hold or a deny, and if they don't do it within those five days, the gun gets released to the purchaser. So, figuring the paperwork goes out on Tuesday, should arrive at the PD on Wednesday, that puts the five day mark at Wednesday, March 14th... which is today. Well, I called the guy yesterday just to check on things, and he said he hadn't heard anything. Just to be sure, I ran the whole "five days" scenario by him. He proceeded to tell me that, no, that was not correct, and that, pretty much, they could take as long as they wanted and we just had to wait. So, I hung up and called the WA Department of Licensing and talked to a lady who confirmed that, no, I was right, they have five days, etc. So, I called the guy back and told him (politely), he said he'd call and leave a message at the PD and ask about clarifying the rules. Well, I called him today and he told me that, because the PD somehow didn't get the paperwork until Thursday, March 8th, my five days wouldn't be up until tomorrow, but that it sounded like it might not matter because, due to this whole Olympia red tape deal, the PD is moving towards just putting blanket holds on ALL applications that come in. Long story short, I bought a handgun two weeks ago and now have pretty much no idea when I'll be able to pick it up. I'm not outraged or anything, but it's just starting to annoy me a bit... Thoughts?
