They have to "schedule" appointments for a CCW application.

The Redmond, WA PD only does it 9am to 11am...Tuesday and Thursday. The local PD only does it on APPT.

As far as I know, this is a "take fingerprints, fill out form" ordeal....why the appointment requirement? Im going in tommorow to fill out some paperwork and take prints??....WA is a "will issue" state...but it seems more like "will issue....with loopholes" state to me....wtf?

The "chick" (overweight hag) that was at the front desk when I originally went into the department made me make an appointment....seems like a load of fluff/LEO BS to me....

is this everyone elses experience?

Same here in CT when I did mine.
It's painless and quick in and out.

I just walked in to our local P.D. and told them I needed prints for a CCW.
If the P.D.s are being that much of a pain, try a walk in at the county cop shop.

Just lame that they cant take it right there and then...if the point is weeding out criminals AND making some money....shouldn't they be ecstatic?

Imagine if everyone showed up at the same time to do their prints and paperwork. They probably, like us, have one person ( and with those hours, one PART TIME PERSON ) assigned to this duty, and it prevents having a rush of people at any given time.

I have found that it all depends on the head honchos attitide toward people owning firearms. If they support freedom, they generally make it as easy as possible, if they do not they use their power and the cops who work for them to make it a PITA for anyone to get anything done.

For example, NC law says to buy a pistol I must have a purchase permit for each one. In my county I walk in, pay my $5, and walk out in 5 minutes with up to 8 (they do eliminate the waiting for the NICS, and are good for 2 years). In some others, they have 5 day waiting periods, limited access time, and some even require letters of reference from prominant business owners or citizens of the county.

Generally, the harder the agenmcy make sit the more anti gun the chief or sheriff and generally that attitude will carry throughout the department.
