    Well just discovered this website the other day, and just discovered that you can open carry in Washington. Been CC for the last 3 years.

    Well today after a long day at the hospital (4 year old son broke both bones in his right arm), I decided to try to oc at the local safeway in Smokey Point. Well, went in not too sure of what to expect, but turns out, I don't even think anyone noticed at all. Purchased everything I needed and walked right out, no incident. WOOHOO!



    But on another note, just wanted to say hello to everyone on the board!

    Welcome Justin!

    You'll find it gets even easier the more you do it. Knowing the laws also helps quell any nervousness.

    There's a lot of reading to be had here in the WA forums and I'd say 80% of it is very helpful. :P

    He's better. He is a trooper! I believe the hard part is over, now its just seeing how calm we can keep him until his arm heals! only 4 weeks he has to keep the cast on.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
