    Has the CCW been updated at all?

    I got a CCW four years ago. When i got it I was surprised it was just a piece of paper.

    After four years, it's almost falling apart. Have these been updated yet to be more durable? For example, something similar to a driver's license?

    No it is still a piece of paper. Laminate it!

    In Pierce County/Tacoma, LESA will laminate it for a fee. That is what I choose to do.

    Take it to Kinkos, make a couple of copies, then laminate it in a luggage tag.

    I went to staples today and had my renewal permit I just got laminated. It cost me a whole $1.09.

    Yeah, i might go down and get a replacement, then laminate it. How long does it take to get a replacement?

    A couple decades ago, it was updated to a CPL.

    But what do I know, I don't even have one

    Down in Lewis county, it's only fifty cents to get it laminated....and it took a whole 10 minutes to get it on the renewal.

    Some places, such as Yakima (last I heard) issue the standard "plastic wallet card". Most in this state however still issue the standard paper permit.

    I rec'd an 8.5x11 sheet in the mail from OZ. my license was the "fold and tear" type. Actually says [ State of Washington License to carry a concealed pistol ]. I like the idea of a color copy or three, add fresh ink sigs and laminate the lot.
