    Would like to get myself a WA CCP. Is the process difficult at all, or similar to the OR process? I do have an OR CCP presently. Not really needing a UT permit as I don't travel much beyond the West Coast. Tried a search for previous threads, but as usual, I have no luck with the search on here.
    Thanks.

    I was told all you have to do is go to the court house and show your Oregon CCP and right them a check.

    You need to go to any Police Department, Sheriff's usually work better, fill out an application, get your prints taken, pay the money, and then wait up to 60 days for it to come in the mail.

    Departments may issue on the spot but if memory serves me correct it is only the Kitsap County Sheriff that does it.

    Yeah, if I remember right, this is what I did. I went to the Sheriff's dept by Ester Short Park.

    I just renewed my non-resident license in Washington this past week. You have to appear in person... no mail orders. The Clark County Sheriff's Office website has all the particulars including the application form you can fill out and print before going in...and a link to the related state of Washington pages. Check the Sheriff's Office website where you plan on going and avoid any surprises. First timers get fingerprinted and pay a little more. Your drivers license will suffice for ID. They don't care about your Oregon CHL because they don't recognize it, although they may accept it as a form of ID. It's a simple and easy process.

    Another idea would be to get a Utah permit. It's good in WA and you can renew via mail (and it's cheap to renew).

    I have been meaning to do the same thing. I have my Utah but would also like to have the Washington to spare myself an argument with an officer who is not familiar with the Utah reciprocity. My buddy did the Washington, pretty quick and easy. Walked into the office in Vancouver, filled out a small bit of paperwork, paid his money, got his fingerprints, and was out the door. Three weeks later had the Washington Permit in his hands.

    If you have a reason to be in a hurry, it might be worth your while to drive up to Kitsap Co. If there is no rush, any Sheriff's office on the OR/WA border would work. Cost is $55.25 for the first time app. It's good for 5 years. May take up to 60 days.

    This is best, as the UT permit covers you in 33 other states. Great "bang for the buck"...pun intended.

    I was recently was working on a construction site in Hood River and stayed on the WA side. As a long time CC from OR, my wife and I went to the local sherriff office in Stevenson, paid them $55.25/e, without photos only prints. Took two weeks in the mail. You can find the fill-in-form on their web site as a pdf and bring it along.

    As I mentioned above, I don't need a UT permit, or the additional expense, as I only travel on the west coast, and it wouldn't help in CA . If I travel elsewhere, I fly and choose not to take my weapons with me. Thanks for the info on the WA process everyone.

    9mm Mike,
    checkout this link and you'll see the advantage in having a WA permit, besides if one chooses to go to Calif., one needs more fire-power than will fit in most vehicles.
