    I have read plenty over the last month and 1/2 here. I have a great deal of respect for those of you OC'ing here. I am about to go sight see in downtown. What is the reality there for OC? Can I be assured I will not be hasseled at Pike Place / downtown? I am not up for a LEO hassle to be honest as I am on vacation . My wife supports, even appreciates CC but.....this is not AZ.



    Also, just a quck question of car carry. I believe after reading the pamphlet, I can unload / and lock up the sidearm during travel? My lock box is the typical small keyed containerwith a cable looped under the front seat.



    Thanksguys!

    Ok, you should be fine. Someone here should have a link to the NWCDL page on the training bulletin issued by Seattle PD. If you require a CPL as soon as you get here, give a call to the Kitsap County Sheriff's office in Port Orchard. Explain to them that you were visiting from out of town on a frequent basis and need a license as soon as possible. It'll require a ferry trip over to Bremerton and driving/transiting to Port Orchard but well worth it. http://www.kitsapgov.com/sheriff/ The main office in Port Orchard would be the one to contact.

    Why specifically Kitsap County?

    They seem to have the fastest turn around for a CPL and closest for your visit to Seattle. Since you are from out of state you can go to any Sheriff's office to get a non-resident CPL, we however have to go to our local office.

    I've heard of Kitsap issuing on the spot.

    Thank you guys. I did a search and one person mentions Silverdale as one who will issue on the spot. Lonnie specifically mentioned Port Orchard. Any opinions/knowledge on this?



    BTW, I am currently in Maple Valley so it is about an hour drive for me. Living in AZ has thinned my blood! Chilly, but I sure miss it here. Everytime I come to visit, I spend brain energy figuring out how to come back.

    Call them and ask. Silverdale also has a website too.

    Thanks Lonnie. I did call. No commitments as to a turn-around time. I guess it is a toss of the coin. If anybody does have some insight, it would be appreciated.



    OC in Seattle...I will let you all know how it went.

    Midweek is the best time to go. People seem to crowd the places on monday's and friday's. If you go to the Silverdale branch Connie Henron is usually the one that issues permits and is especially nice and helpful with any questions.

    Hey, the never-left-home natives are finding our current weather chilly, too!

    I had a 9-day turnaround on my CPL (I was expecting a month for some reason). Got it through the KCSO in Kingston and they're only open two days a week right now. No muss, no fuss.

    Thanks again guys! I now have my permit. Still going to OC in Seattle but glad I have the option. Seems the OC movement is getting stronger.

    I followed G27's advice, bypassed Port Orchard and went into the Silverdale office. I finished my fingerprints, and went to wash my hands. When I came out of the bathroom they handed me my card. As I looked at her with surprise, she added that my background check came back clear.



    I have always suspected that the background checks are completely computerized and just a matter of a few minutes at most. I also handed them my AZ CCW but have no idea if that was any factor what so ever.

    I can vouch for Silverdale's quickness. I was issued mine on the spot as well, and I find it odd all the departments don't do that.

    Some departments (Port Orchard PD ie) will not issue until the have heard back from the local mental health people. Since Kitsap Mental health is not accessable via internet, they wait for snail mail. Then they will not issue until you turn in your old cpl.

    That couldn't apply to first-time non-resident permits, though.

    A month is the maximum amount of time that they have to get it to you.

    I went for my CPL on my 21st birthday, and got it in about two weeks. (Nine business days) and I had to go to Pierce County.
