    Just as the title says. Been looking through the classifieds and some people want to see a current permit. I let my permit expire when I moved to a different county a few years back and am planning to move again to a different county in the near future so I havent bothered reapplying do to that fact. Can the police do a quick background check to verify to the seller that I'm legitimate? Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Josh J

    You could pay for one.
    Most here would be satisfied with not giving them a reason to suspect you are a prohibited person.
    However a carry permit is a good way to suggest you are legit. But doesn’t prove anything.

    This is the simplest way if you want to appease the seller.

    Exactly, if you want to allay most fears you could just meet at a local gun shop and have them run the gun through their books.

    Well the issue is being the buyer and the seller wanting proof.

    Are you not able to get the same item or a reasonable approximation of it from someone not a jack wagon demanding, as I’m sure they’re referring to it, a CCP?

    I’d look elsewhere.
