    Indian reservations?

    Does anyone know if any of the states reservations prohibit carrying a gun? I often get gas at Indian gas stations such as at the swinomish and Skagit. I would hate to run into any problems.

    I know that much. That's why I was asking if anyone know of any specific tribal restrictions

    I know the Tulalip Tribe recognizes the State's CPL and if you don't have one you can't drive with your gun accessible from the inside of the car, so it has to be in the trunk. That's all I know.

    Beat me to it.

    The above reference is fairly good.

    I carry a spare tire, in case I have a flat. I carry life insurance, in case I die. I carry a gun, in case I need it.

    The Chevron at swinomish is a GREAT place to get gas. Going off what a few people have said before it seems you're fairly safe until verbally told otherwise. If you're super worried you could cover up briefly while at the gas stations etc as well, but it shouldn't be a huge issue.

    The Swinomish Tribal Code regarding firearms:

    http://www.narf.org/nill/Codes/swinomishcode/4_5.pdf

    Bear in mind that Tribal Code only applies to Tribal Members. "Visitors" can be asked to leave or held to State/Local regulations. Many tribal police are also county deputies if the tribe has complied with State Law re: training and insurance.

    The Swinomish code is pretty much like State Law and includes a part very similar to 9.41.270 so Open Carry may well be frowned upon.
    "If I shoot all the ammo I am carrying I either won't need anymore or more won't help"
