The cost of a concealed pistol license from the Issaquah Police Department has dropped by $2.75 due to a federal rule change.
Starting Monday, fingerprint checks cost $16.50 — down from $19.25 — and, therefore, the cost of a concealed pistol license drops from $55.25 to $52.50.
Issaquah residents can apply for the license at the Issaquah Police Department, 130 E. Sunset Way. The department processes fingerprints on Tuesdays and Thursday from 9-10 a.m.
In Issaquah, applicants for a concealed pistol license must be at least 21 years old, a U.S. citizen or possess a valid alien firearms license. The applicant cannot have a pending trial, appeal or sentencing on certain charges.
The applicant cannot have any outstanding warrants for any charge from any court, any court order or injunction against possessing a firearm, or any felony convictions.
The state also prohibits license for people determined to be mentally defective or incompetent to manage their affairs. The applicant must have never been committed to a mental institution.
Unincorporated King County residents must apply for a concealed pistol license at the King County Courthouse.
