    Check your local state laws but until recently CA was the only unloaded carry state(now they basically can't carry without a "may issue" permission slip). I believe WA is an open carry loaded state..as always IANAL and the preceding is not legal advice.

    Hazard, have you fired your weapon yet and have you had any kind of weapons training? Reading the book is good, but you need to go to the range and learn how to use the tool safely.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    If all you have done is read a owners manual for your gun then I suggest you return to post #3. Also get into the washington forum and read previous info and ask new questions. Yes washington is a open carry state and you can have bullets in your gun, but you need to read the laws to know when you can't be with it loaded without a CPL.

    OP, Please watch this. Very good info on talking to police. Or in this case not. Ever. It's a bit long but def worth it.

    Here is a better source of information about what you can do in Washington than your firearm manual, it includes links to Laws as well. http://opencarry.org/wa.html

    When you go for your CPL you will have an opportunity to pick up some of the Firearms Safety, The Law & You pamphlets.. do so.,, is good info for you to carry and when challenged as to the legality of carry... hand out..

    Lets Unite and REMIND our Government that WE are the source of their authority and that WE demand our Rights be returned, Unabridged, Non-infringed, without denial or disparagement. The faults of a few, reflect badly on many, I therefore do not suggest anyone support WAC. My EDC is either a H&K USP .40 or a Taurus 689 .357 filled with Snake Loads

    Trollin’ Trollin’ Trollin’

    Keep movin', movin', movin',
    Though they're disapprovin',
    Keep them doggies movin' Rawhide!
    Don't try to understand 'em,
    Just rope and throw and grab 'em,
    Soon we'll be living high and wide.
    Boy my heart's calculatin'
    My true love will be waitin', be waiting at the end of my ride.

    Move 'em on, head 'em up,
    Head 'em up, move 'em out,
    Move 'em on, head 'em out Rawhide!
    Set 'em out, ride 'em in
    Ride 'em in, let 'em out,
    Cut 'em out, ride 'em in Rawhide.

    Trollin’, Trollin’, Trollin’
    Trollin’, Trollin’, Trollin’
    Trollin’, Trollin’, Trollin’
    Trollin’, Trollin’, Trollin’
    Rawhide!

    Trollin’, Trollin’, Trollin’
    Though the streams are swollen
    Keep them dogies Trollin’
    Rawhide!
    Rain and wind and weather
    Hell-bent for leather
    Wishin' my gal was by my side.
    All the things I'm missin',
    Good vittles, love, and kissin',
    Are waiting at the end of my ride

    CHORUS
    Move 'em on, head 'em up
    Head 'em up, move 'em on
    Move 'em on, head 'em up
    Rawhide
    Count 'em out, ride 'em in,
    Ride 'em in, count 'em out,
    Count 'em out, ride 'em in
    Rawhide!

    Keep movin', movin', movin'
    Though they're disapprovin'
    Keep them dogies movin'
    Rawhide!
    Don't try to understand 'em
    Just rope, throw, and brand 'em
    Soon we'll be living high and wide.
    My hearts calculatin'
    My true love will be waitin',
    Be waitin' at the end of my ride.

    Rawhide!
