    I have been lurking here for a few weeks and have really enjoyed the site. I am from Vancouver and have been caring concealed for about 22 years.
    I have always been under the impression that when i have my pistol concealed, that if it is seen in any way i can be charged for displaying, or printing. what are the facts on this issue.?

    Thanks

    Also, please read the RCW 9.41 section, as it is the "wellspring" from wince it all flows, and familiarity with them will get you far, both here and in the real world.

    welcome!

    in a nutshell, you are in no (legal) danger of arrest if you print or inadvertently expose your pistol. there are no such laws regarding either to violate.

    the only part you need to worry about is this part of RCW 9.41.270 which reads:

    (1) It shall be unlawful for any person to carry, exhibit, display, or draw any firearm, dagger, sword, knife or other cutting or stabbing instrument, club, or any other weapon apparently capable of producing bodily harm, in a manner, under circumstances, and at a time and place that either manifests an intent to intimidate another or that warrants alarm for the safety of other persons.
    in other words, don't draw your gun in public unless your life depends on it, don't threaten anyone with it etc. use common sense and all will be well. accidental exposure is often unwanted on your part but can get you in no legal trouble give that you're following all other applicable laws.

    Thanks for the reply's. Answered my questions in full..
    Have never open carried before, but after reading these forum posts, I will. Sure would be more comfortable at times. I have CC for a long time but have never found it very comfortable.
    it's nice to have found a site that relates to my neck of the woods...
