    new to open carry in Federal Way

    Hi there, just moved here from Alaska for my job and I am new to open carry. Didn't open carry often in Alaska as it's very cold most of the time I was there, and I worked summers in Texas. Looking forward to it down here. I've read a lot of the literature on this site and you guys have done a good job researching and posting stuff, makes me feel very comfortable! I'll be carrying around Federal Way and Burien quite a bit, so I'll see you all out there!

    IF I read your post correctly is seems you are looking forward to OC'ing in Texas. Hate to break your bubble but DON'T plan on OC'ing a handgun in TEXAS as it is ILLEGAL! And several attempting to OCLG have been cited for Disorderly Conduct NO MATTER how they carry the LG or there apparent demeanor! Permit is required to conceal your HG as well.

    Misread the OP. Understand NOW he is NOT refering to OC in TEXAS but rather Washington state.... OC is good to go in Washington State, but a Permit makes it easier with vehicle carry and the infamous FGFSZ.

    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    Not what he said Joe.

    Welcome to Washington, Osprey!
    This state is beyond OC friendly. Never had a serious issue.

    But, Joe, His location is Federal Way, WA……..and he is posting in the WA forum.

    Now I know the '49 'rs didn't quite know the difference between Federal Way WA, and Seattle WA, what with the huge fiasco with the billboard and such, so I could see how you were also confused and bewildered.

    We'll let it slide, this time

    Osprey……welcome to the area. Hope to see you sometime at one of the meets/coffee etc. Have fun!

    Haha sorry for the confusion, what I meant to say was, having spent most of my time in Alaska in the winter when it's too cold to open carry, and summers in Texas where it's illegal, I never had much of a chance to do it until I moved to Washington.

    Willy, thanks for the invite, where/when are these meets?

    I am in Federal Way.

    Expect extra attention of you decide to go to the Mall in town. The theater there is anti-gun, just a heads up.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

    Welcome to Washington Osprey. Things of an OC nature are well publicized here on the forum. Sometimes so many it becomes a matter of distance during the summers. Again, Welcome.

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.

    Osprey,
    Follow the thread Golddigger pointed you to, and keep track of the threads that are here. There are regular 1st/2nd/3rd/ and 4th saturday coffee meets in the various regions, and some regular sunday ones too. You will start noticing them in that one thread and sometimes in these threads.

    Cheers!
