    Yes, you may open carry. Just not loaded in a vehicle.

    Check out the FAQ.

    Keep it OC at all times. If it is concealed in any way, then it will be concealed...

    Try to get a non resident WA CPL while you are here. See if they can issue it to you within a day. Just bring your own state permit/license to carry concealed with you to show them.

    does the whole gun need to be open or is the handle (butt) enough?

    Keep it OWB to be entirely safe.

    Take a day trip to Silverdale and visit the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office. You will have your Washington CPL before you leave their office.
