    I used to live about five miles from this place and I shot there frequently. Its a well stocked store & indoor range with a good staff and a knowledgeable gunsmith on site. The only detractor during my time there was that some of their clientelle are a tad ghetto.

    Well as someone else said before - you may have passed once and got the CPL but you just never know what has happened since then...

    I guess they are just covering the basics - CYA before you hire.

    Cuts down on those that are not eligible before running the background check and then run it again to ensure it is up todate.
    • Being prepared is to prepare, this is our responsibility.
    • I am not your Mommy or Daddy and do not sugar coat it but I will tell you simply as how I see it, it is up to you on how you will or will not use it.
    • IANAL, all information I present is for your review, do your own homework.

    You'd think that with all the "record keeping" that government does now, they would be recalling the CPL's from those who were no longer eligible. At least flagging them as "invalid due to disqualifying conviction" or the like.

    Just doing a little "government bashing" here.

    Well, they probably don't have any means of running the CPL number at Champion Arms unless it's for a pistol sale. If they could run the number, I can see them not needing the additional check. However, I think it's more likely that to them, seeing a "good guy card" makes it worth spending money on a background check, since they may feel the person is more likely to pass. If they let any average Joe apply that didn't have a CPL, they may get more applicants who are unable to pass the background check, thus wasting money, and in this economy it's the last thing a business wants to do.

    I do not recall for certain if it is an RCW or a WAC that requires retail FFL dealers have on file is the store, a fingerprint card of all employees that handle and / or sell firearms.

    It's an FFL requirement that all employees that handle firearms have a background check performed. Since there is an annual inspection requirement for an FFL, the records will definitely have to be on file and ready for BATFE to inspect when they show up.

    Whenever someone gets convicted of such, the presiding Judge will take away your gun rights as part of sentencing effective immediately.

    Yup. I had a friend who thought it'd be smart to threaten someone with an airsoft gun.

    His CPL rights were immediately revoked. I don't know if he ever got them back.
