    Does item 6 of RCW 9.41.060 create an exception allowing a person to carry a loaded firearm in their car when going to or from the gun club? Orfor a non licenced person to carry concealed when going to or from the club?

    Why not just pay the 60 bucks and get the CPL? Washington is a shall issue state after all.

    Yes I belive it is an exception. Point blank asked an LEO at an IPSC match that question a couple of years ago, and got that answer.

    My advice on permits...don't waste your time/money on a WA permit. Get the Utah
    permit (for many reasons)

    It does in subsection 6 if it is an organized club for the purpose of target shooting and you are going to or from the target shoot meeting place.

    Keep in mind that it would be up to the person to proove that tothe the officer at the time of the stop or the judge if you are unable to convince the officer. In my opinion it just is not worth it.

    Actually I meant instead of the WA permit. Once you have that, there's no reason whatever for the WA permit.

    For all due purposes you do not need a Wa if you have a Utah permit. It would be easier to obtain a Utah permit though.

    If you are a resident of WA, your UT permit is worthless. As per the RCW on reciprocity, 9.41.073 (1)(b):
    This section applies to a license holder from another state only while the license holder is not a resident of this state.
    So if you are a resident of WA, you certainly do need a WA permit, even if you do have a Utah one.

    This does present a dilemma with moving to WA because as soon as you become a resident (get a drivers license) your UT permit is invalid and you are disarmed until your WA resident permit comes (which is usually pretty quick, thankfully) and you can't apply for a WA license to carry (out of state address is now bad and you aren't a resident), so you are stuck in limbo.

    I must admit I didn't know the RCW had that provision in it.
    I never heard that said once while going through the Utah class,
    and have emailed my instructor for a clarification. It really makes no sence except for the desire to generate revenue, since the permit requirments are so lax in this state.
    I still have a valid WA permit , but had no intention of renewing it
    after 2009. Oh well, only 32 bucks, I'll screw the state out of that somewhere else easily.
    I'll still use it (Utah) in the other states that honor it while traveling.

    Uh, that's not the way it works in this country. The state has the burden of proof in criminal cases.



    The state would have to prove the exception didn't apply to you.

    It's been so long I forget the details, but it's something like this:

    One of my east coast relatives lives in a state with very unfriendly CCW laws.

    Thier administrative code has the same exemption about carrying a loaded firearm to and from a shooting range.

    There are 'shooting clubs' that are open nearly 24 hours. They sell memberships, butin essence they are selling the service of "carry a gun whenever you want, and if you get stopped just tell the cop you are coming here."

    Can't remember the state.

    Dont forget this exception:

    (8) Any person engaging in a lawful outdoor recreational activity such as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, or horseback riding, only if, considering all of the attendant circumstances, including but not limited to whether the person has a valid hunting or fishing license, it is reasonable to conclude that the person is participating in lawful outdoor activities or is traveling to or from a legitimate outdoor recreation area;


    Shoot... unless I'm going to work I'm ALWAYS engaging in a lawfull outdoor activity

    Be careful about using a Non-Resident Permit/License if not a resident of that state, relying on Recirprocity within other states, and being within 1000ft of a school zone.... Please read this....

    "The Gun Control Act of 1968,

    including the Gun-Free School Zones Act, 18 V.S.C.

    § 922(q). The Gun-Free School Zones Act provides that it

    is unlawful for any individual to knowingly possess or

    discharge a firearm in a place that the individual knows or

    has reasonable cause to believe is a school zone, if the

    firearm has moved in or otherwise affects interstate or

    foreign commerce. A school zone is defined to include any

    place in, or on the grounds of, a public, parochial, or

    private elementary or secondary school, or within 1,000

    feet of the school grounds.

    The law provides certain exceptions to the general ban on

    possession of firearms in school zones. One exception is

    where the individual possessing the firearm "is licensed

    to do so by the State in which the school zone is located

    or a political subdivision of the State. . ." See

    18 D.S.C. § 922 (q) (2) (B) (ii). A license qualifies as an

    exception only if the law of the State or political

    subdivision requires law enforcement authorities to verify

    that the individual is qualified under law to receive the

    license.

    The law clearly provides that in order to qualify as an

    exception to the general prohibitions of the Gun-Free

    School Zones Act, the license must be issued by the State

    in which the school zone is located or a political

    subdivision of that State. A concealed weapons license or

    permit from any otper State would not satisfy the criteria

    set forth in the law.

    For purposes of the GFSZA, in order to fall within this

    limited exception, the permit must be issued by the State

    itself.

    Just got this back from a very reputable instructor in Onalaska in regard to whether
    I need to keep my WA permit along with my Utah permit to be legal for WA concealed
    carry:

    [/i]
    "Yes, WA law reads that reciprocity is only for out of staters, that you have to have the license from WA if you are a WA resident."

    I was under the impression that big chunks of the school zone act were tossed by the courts due to little things like roads that run within 1000 ft of schools, houses that people live in that are within... etc.

    Might want to check on the current status of this one. I'm pretty sure they can't bust you for legally carrying within 1000 feet of a school unless you are on school property. AFAIK

    The only thing different is the adding of "Congress Shall/Does Regulate Interstate Commerce" to make it "So-Called" Constitutional, which I say give me a freaking break!:what:

    Uh that is the way it is. The officer is a fact gatherer. The state, as you put it, is the courts system.
