    I finally got my paperwork straightened out with my reserve unit and got my transfer to active duty. I'll be going to Ft. lewis Washington at the end of July. Is there anyone here that can tell me what the gun laws are like in washington state?
    thanks, Johno

    they also have a good CCW policy there
  4. No machine guns allowed and there is no preemption provision in the state constitution, so municipalities can pass their own laws, IIRC.

    If filing for a CCW, all you gotta put for a reason is "Personal Safety". They can't deny you a CCW unless the NCIC they do on you comes back with a hit, or your on their local roster for ne'er do wells. You can't pack unconcealed unless you are at home, hunting or at a shooting event. You can't keep a loaded gun in your car unless it's on your person and you have a CCW, or it's locked in your glove box or otherwise out of site while you're stationary. An unloaded gun can be transported in a container in the trunk of your car, or in a gun rack if you're driving a truck. The action must be open.

    thanks BenP. what about buying them? any waiting period or anything like. guns are politically incorrect here in the PRK, so I want a FAL as soon as i get to WA.

    No waiting if ya got a CCW, otherwise, it's seven days for anything but muzzleloaders, bows, or airguns.

    CCW costs $60.00 first time, $32.00 for renewal. Good for 5 years. Anyone born before 1972 has to take a hunter safety course or prove that they've had a Washington hunting license before.
