Getting fingerprinted in the pandemic

Our local Sheriff's office has been closed over a week due to outbreak of positive covid tests, now they have extended it and suspended outside fingerprints indefinitely.  Local PD is very limited on doing prints anyway, so its getting hard to find anywhere tyget them done. Good business opportunity if that's even allowed for private business to do.

Do it yourself.

Get local cards and change the ORI or order free cards from the atf.

The only fingerprints that have to be done by a LEO are for the FELs

Thats why I tell people a trust is not worth it, its more of a PITA than individual.

One LGS does their own fingerprinting. $50, but a lot of their prices are less than MSRP.

There's no rule that you can't do it yourself.  You just need the fingerprint cards and make sure it's rolled correctly.

Hi OP,

Do it yourself.  I've done mine for 16 years.  Learn to roll correctly.  I purchased the ink and roller.  Found the glass around the house to roll the ink onto.  Be careful.  It can really upset the wife if the ink gets out of control :)

I’ve been rolling my own prints for awhile and not a thing has been said. No difference with that compared to the Silencer Shop Machine that scans you then prints your card...no LEO involved.

As others have said, roll your own.

If you really want to get technical: get a really nice, clear set of prints on an FD-258 card, scan the prints to a hard-drive/thumb-drive as a jpeg, use the Paint application in Windows to get rid of everything but the actual fingerprints on the jpeg file, save the fingerprints, screw with your printer, computer, and jpeg file to get the correct dimensions/margins down, print the new fingerprints to a blank FD-258, sign, seal, and deliver to NFA Branch.

It took me a year to figure out, but I did exactly as I posted above. Once you get the correct margins down so that everything fits within the correct boxes of the FD-258, you can print a card slicker than snake shiite any time you want. As long as your digits remain attached to your hand, you should be able to use the prints forever. 

Why pay somebody to do your prints when you can do it yourself?
