    I am going back to Washington Burlington to be exact. Work is kinda suckn' down here in Oregon for us sales guys that are trying to sell stuff that know body needs at this time.

    How long will it take to get a CWP up in Washington I know my CHL will not transfer.

    And is there a 7-10 wait8) up in Washington still on handguns I think that is what it was when I left.

    One huge part I miss is the walk in and walk out with the toy it makes convincing the wife easy on a spur of the moment

    Thanks guys

    60 bucks, a fingerprinting, and no longer than a couple week wait, will get your license in hand.

    Once you have that, there is NO wait to buy a handgun.. You walk in, walk out with any firearm, assuming you PAY!:thumbup:

    Welcome back!

    You may have to wiat a short period IM thinking 6 months to prove your a WA. resident , dam I wish I could find the cpl book anyways Im not 100% sure on that double check with the Burlington police department. If they are like my police dept. they only do the finger printing stuff one day a month for a few hours. Once you have have it there is no waiting period to get a pistol from a dealer just a call NCIC and your good to go.

    Are you moving there to sell stuff up at the outlet malls????

    Sometimes, you can get better service from the Sheriff's office, so check with them also.

    Not many NFA fun toys up here, so you're leaving that behind...

    Somewheree, I read recently that fingerprint service must be available during all regular business hours, but I can't find that reference just now. I notice that some offices are open for fingerprints only an hour or two a week.

    The law is pretty specific that you apply to the local police office if you live in town and to the Sheriff only if you live out of town.

    Would it be easier to get a non resident license before you move, then change over to resident once established here?

    My experience in Skagit County 3 years ago......11 days from the time the nice young lady did my finger prints to the day my CPL showed up in the mail box. But then they have had two or three sets of my finger prints nigh 40 years now. Unlike Ms. Clinton a Top Secret SBI security clearance meant something back in the day....

    I live in Burlington, you'll get good service from either the Municipal Police or Skagit County, depending on which side of the City Limits sign you end up on.

    Approval is within 30 days. Bring proof of residency, generally, a new Driver's License will do.

    No waiting periods in WA for gun buys anymore, the NICS check ended all that, unless you get a NICS delay for some reason or other.

    The best gun shop is Skagit Arms on the west side of the freeway, but Kesselring's is still the best shop for ammo, reloading, scopes, and smith work, even though they don't do guns anymore. If you want an FFL for transfers, Bob Barnes in Woolley is your man.
