Hey guys this is really a great thread. Lots of good info here. Thanks everyone.
There is a point that is not really clear for me, and I would appreciate if I could get some clarity on it:
I understood from the many posts here and from reading the documents posted that I could, without a CPL (I applied for one, its taking 2 months in my county), legally have an unloaded pistol in my car. I understood it did not have to be in a case, or locked, or in the trunk.
Say I want to drive out to the range, for example. It is my understanding that I can have my pistol in the console, or the glove compartment, and that as long as it is not loaded, that is perfectly legal in Washington state.
Am I correct? And if not, how am I supposed to get my pistol to the range? Same goes for my shotgun.
Thanks for your help,
PS: And this is the reason I am confused:
Here is RCW 9.41.060 - Exceptions to restrictions on carrying firearms. The provisions of RCW 9.41.050 shall not apply to:
(9) Any person while carrying a pistol unloaded and in a closed opaque case or secure wrapper;
Doesn't that mean if I have my pistol inside a soft case in the glove compartment or wherever in the car it is legal?
