    a few questions about purchasing

    hey people great forum I've used as a reference quite a few times in the last two weeks.
    now on to my questions, I have no criminal record at all not a speeding ticket or parking ticket nothing at all. I purchased a brand new Taurus pt111 mil pro last Friday but due to renton pd being back up with finger prints i cant get in for my cpl til the 26th of this month so my question is am i still gonna have to wait the 5 days to go pick up my gun or should the background check be back by now? i got my gun at discount gun sales in tukwilla if that helps at all.
    thanks in advance to anyone willing to shed some light on this subject.

    I'm not sure that I completely understand your question, but here's the answer to what I believe you're asking:

    Once you have your carry permit, you will be absolved the waiting period.
    Until the permit is in your hot, sweaty hand, you still gotta do the wait.

    my bad i live in Washington and the guy at the gun store said the wait wasn't mandatory just the allotted time give to the leo's for a background check he said if i had no record they would probably get back to him before them i guess my question is has anyone gotten theirs before the wait is up without a cpl here or is that guy just making my wait harder

    Well, now you're beyond my experience. I never bought a pistol in Washington before I had my carry permit, so I don't know the answer.
