First, welcome to OCDO. Second in WA it is a Concealed Pistol Licence, (CPL) not a CCP. Conceal Carry Permit. Although I agree with you, the law does not. In/on the car/bus/motorcycle/ferry when loaded it is considered "concealed", which I somewhat agree since a LEO could not see it if on your hip. Just get a "CPL", so you don't have to worry about it, and can go either way with no worry. I mostly OC, but the CPL reduces a lot of hassle. It would be nice if WA was a Constitutional Carry state, but we have it pretty good compared to other states.
