How do I obtain a Washington Concealed Pistol License?

To apply for a Washington State CPL (Concealed Pistol License) you must be 21 years old, possess a Washington State drivers license or ID card, not be convicted of a felony or found not guilty of a felony by reason of insanity and do not have any outstanding warrants. The process requires that you fill out the application, be fingerprinted, and pay $60 for the license. This must be done at the police department or local sheriff office that has jurisdiction where you reside. It is best to call and find out when and where the department is offering the CPL application process, some departments are on a walk in basis and others only offer it a few hours during the week. Remember that you cannot carry a concealed gun with or without a permit at schools, courthouses, jails, mental facilities, any areas where people younger than 21 years are not allowed (like liquor stores), and music festivals.
