    CCW permit in Bremerton, County Sherrif or P.D.?

    I need to change my address, having moved from Oak Harbor to Bremerton, and don't know who is the issuing authority for the area.
    I would like to do this when I get home in March, can someone help a deployed sailor out?
    My old permit fell apart just before we left, so I need a new one regardless...

    Change of address (within the state) doesn't necessitate the CPL being changed. But since your old one had fallen apart, I would probably do the same.

    Take your new one into Kinkos when you get it and laminate it.

    If you live in Bremerton city limits it would be Bremerton PD. There is A LOT of places that are called "Bremerton" that are actually in the county. The easiest way to figure out where you live is to call 911 and tell them you have a non-emergency and want to verify your address. Then ask them if its County/City. You you can PM me the address or Street and I can let you know. I worked for the Kitsap 911 center for 3 years, and calling 911 is preferred method. As for who the issuing authority, its the jurisdiction where you live. So Bremerton PD in the city, Kitsap SO.

    As for the address change, there is no legal requirement to change the address on your CPL. I moved 2 years ago, and still have my old address on it. I will change it when I renew my CPL in 2013...

    Change your address: Concealed pistol licenseWashington State law doesn’t require you to update the address on your concealed pistol license when you move.
    How to update your address

    The process to change the address on your concealed pistol license is the same as when you first applied, except you won’t be fingerprinted:
    1. Go in person to the Washington law enforcement agency where you live.
    2. Complete a concealed pistol license application, marking the “Replacement license” box.
    3. Submit the application and replacement fee. ($10 for replacement)
    The law enforcement agency will contact you to pick up your license, or they’ll mail it to you.

    That is incorrect info. If you live in the city limits you may absolutely apply/renew with the sheriff. I live in the city limits and never go to the city PD. I always go to the sheriffs department for my CPL.

    Not to hijack because its related but is the same not true for going to city PD? I live in Spokane county, not city, and when I went to the courthouse to get my CPL it says that the issuing authority is Spokane PD even though I don't live in the city. Does it really matter as long as its in Washington?

    Well the state DOL page says this:

    LINK

    How to apply

    • If you live in the unincorporated area of a county apply at your sheriff’s office.
    • If you live in an incorporated city within the county, apply at either the city police department or sheriff’s office.
    • If you aren’t a Washington State resident, apply at any local law enforcement agency in Washington.

    Personally I'd go to KCSO in their main office in Port Orchard. If you catch them early in the AM on a Monday you are likely to walk out the same day with it. Worst case scenario is you get it in the mail a few days latter.

    I live up by #4 Reservoir, on top of the hill off of 3rd Ave. Was fun getting home last year when the streets froze over, let me tell you.

    Port Orchard is closer, I think, so I will head over there and replace my permit. Island County makes you get it from the Sheriff, too, so might as well.

    As to why I want to change my address, well, buying new guns gets kinda hinky if you use three addresses, one on your license, another on your CCW, and yet another for your billing address. So, I'm changing my DL and my CCW permit to match, to make my post deployment spending easier.

    I stand corrected... rereading the RCW you are correct... Not sure why I had the impression that going to the PD was required for a city dweller... Thanks for correcting me on that.

    Another way to determine if your new address will be in the City or not is to go to the Department of Revenue and use their Sales and Use Tax Rate Lookup Tool. Enter Street Address and zip code.

    It will show the "taxing area you are in. Just look down the list and see what "City" you are in. If that area is blank you'll then be in the County.

    When I bought my last gun, the shop said they could not sell me the gun because the address printed on my drivers license was not my current address, even though I did file the address change form with the DOL. Wouldn't the same thing apply to the CPL? Or was this just a rule the shop had, and not a law?

    You mean you didn't respond to the "Is everything current?" question with a simple "Yes"?????

    I never try to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person so I just tell them "everything's current". Unless you're trying to buy as a WA resident and you've moved to California without getting a new D/L then where's the harm? The only reason that the address needs to be current for WA residents is so the handgun purchase form can be sent to the correct Police Department. They think that's an extra level of approval that will keep those recently convicted of disqualifying crimes from getting a handgun.

    Yannow, I had to look that one up. I guess it is just one of those things that is easily overlooked or forgotten because of how trivial it is. Thanks for that info. It is now embedded in my non-volatile memory.

    +1 on great same-day service. I was in and out in 20min as well. My wife got hers in 2 days from them in the mail, at the time they we backed up so they were mailing them. Mine was 3 years ago, hers was 2 so they might be back to same-day again... Great place to get a CPL here in Kitsap.

    When I first got my cpl I had no idea what the laws where or that OC was legal the kitsap county sheriff's office really made me feel conformable in getting my first cpl. The woman I talked to at the counter (not sure if she was a officer or civilian) answered all my questions and really made me feel good about my want to carry a gun. The officer who brought me back to finger print me had a great sense of humor and told me he wished more people took their own safety seriously and thanked me for getting one. I know everyone will have their own experience with kitsap county sheriff's office but I have never had a bad experience with them. I have ran into them a few times while OC and have never had a single bad experience with them, they have been nothing but polite, respectable and professional with me
