Has this happened to anybody else? I went to renew my CPL at the sheriff's office today. Finished all the paperwork, and gave them my check. The clerk had my CPL, and I asked for it back (sort of like -- um, haven't you forgotten something?) She tried to tell me I couldn't have it back, but I could pick up my new one tomorrow or have it mailed to me. Problem being, I can't get there tomorrow.
I must have looked a bit perplexed -- she asked if it was a problem, and if I was going somewhere . . . I explained, I carry every day.
She seemed to get my point, and relented, if I promised to deliver my old permit to the office when my new one arrives.
Perhaps I should have told her that if I didn't walk out of the office with it in my hand, I would be in violation of RCW?
I've never had to surrender my old permit before -- has anybody else had a similar experience, or is this just one county doing their own thing?
