As far as the fingerprint cards go, if it doesn't have to be done by a LE agency, then why not do them yourself? Problem with getting the ink? Needs to be notarized? What's the deal?
Shouldn't be an issue of using someone else's prints, because many people's prints should already be on record. Especially if you already have a CA CCW. They should be able to verify that the prints match the name on the application..
