How do I apply for a firearms dealer license?

Applications for firearms dealer licenses are accepted during normal business hours. One set of fingerprints is required for the dealer (fingerprints are processed from 9-10 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays). Dealers must be 21 years old and present the following:

  • Washington driver license or identification card

  • Current federal firearms license

  • Current state business license

  • Current Issaquah business registration license

Dealer licenses are valid for one year from the date of issuance, and normally take two weeks to process. The fee of $125 is collected upon issuance, not upon application. Make out checks to: WA STATE TREASURER

Each year about 30 Washington children are hospitalized and 19 children die from firearm injuries. Since 2000, the LOK-IT-UP program has worked to increase public awareness about the importance of safely storing or locking firearms. Firearm owners, parents, schools, law enforcement agencies, public health officials, health care providers and others have supported LOK-IT-UP.

LOK-IT-UP focuses on family and community safety. It seeks to increase the voluntary safe storage of firearms as a way of preventing firearm-related deaths and injuries, particularly among children. To learn more, go to
