    Nope. Just go for it. Then you will know what to do if there is a glitch. They can do it it a day if they want to. Some ppl get one in 2-3 days. It takes longer when they are not sure.

Is there any way to run an NCIC check ahead of time so I can get the paperwork together to contest it if I have to? I already have a non-official copy of the order to restore firearms rights in WA.


    No.. there's no way to do the NCIC III ahead of time.. though it takes about 4 seconds total.. there's really no reason to have the info ahead of time.


    Each agency is different when it comes to CPL issuance and the times involved. While the law SAYS we have 30 days.. (60 days in some cases) a dirty little secret of the CPL world is that we CAN turn out a CPL in about 10 minutes.

    *SOME* agencies will take your application and put it on the pile of applications (think: The warehouse at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark) and they work on them and turn them out as time allows..


    whereas *SOME* agencies will have you wait and will have it completed in 20 or so and you're out the door.

    I get through MY pile of applications at about the week and a half rate on average.. depending on things that pop up during a background.

    You hear people all the time with the 'MINE took 30 days' thing..

    Things can pop up from one's past that require detailed investigation to determine the outcomes. Keep in mind that most agencies don't keep general records for more than 6 years or so, so we have to dig through the court system to determine the outcome of an arrest.

    A common example: During the CPL background, we find that someone was arrested 25 years ago for a prohibitive crime. We need to determine if there was a conviction based on this arrest. The arresting agency had long destroyed the paper record and the NCIC III says something like 'Disposition Not Received' .. meaning it's a loose end.. and we don't like loose ends..

    So, we need to query the court system for the disposition of the charges.. often times requiring court staff to do a hand search for the info (again..think the warehouse in the movie)

    This adds a LOT of turnaround time to what would normally be a quick CPL issuance.


    Don't even get me started on out-of-state or federal or military snags.. THAT can add weeks whilst trying to communicate back and forth.. sometimes 30 days is hardly enough time..


    bottom line is that if you have your documents in order, you should be ok. Be sure that you have your court orders signed by the judge or they're just useless paper..

    Just curious how many Cpl apps do you get in a week???^^^^^^

  5. I suppose I average about 50 in a week. That'll spike in the summer, Christmas, after any worldwide natural disaster and presidential election (regardless of the party in office)

    I had some copies emailed to me from the attorney that took over for the attorney I hired to vacate my case so it's not an original certified copy, just a copy of a certified copy.

    This is the second page of the order to vacate/seal and restore firearms rights, would this be acceptable?



    The .pdf version is nice and clear and also does not have that info blacked out, this is just to show the signatures.

    In case anyone is interested this is form NO: 99-8-02700-2

  7. Ya..that should do just fine. My guess is that by now, it wouldn't show on your rap sheet anymore.

    Applied for my CPL today in Edmonds. Even though you have to make an appointment all they do is have you fill out a little paperwork and take your fingerprints electronically. She said it usually takes a week or two. I showed her my court order restoring my firearms rights but she said she didn't need it as long as it's been sealed so we'll see.
