Ranges in Western WA with CZ or PX4 Rentals

Does anyone know of ranges in Western Washington that have CZ P01, P07, 75 or Beretta PX4 to rent? I'm looking for a CCW and have been able to try all the usual suspects P365, Hellcat, Glock 43, M&P Shield, but I'm interested in trying some DA/SA models but my closest range doesn't have any in their rental inventory.

AWB and warranty repair

I read the distribute != transfer post from a while back and I know that SAFE system checks don’t apply to a transfer and back of a firearm to a ffl for repair. But what I’m not entirely sure of is whether an AWB can be sent out of state for warranty work and then returned to me. Anyone know which rcws apply here?

FFL screwed up paperwork

Hello all,

TLDR: FFL incorrectly noted Glock 17 as a 19.

I purchased a standard Glock 17 from my local FFL. Did the whole nine yards of paperwork and was excited. Yesterday I came to the shop to pick up only for the manager to tell me they noted incorrectly on my paperwork it being a Glock 19 and not a 17. I was disappointed beyond belief as I really don’t want to wait another 2 weeks. I was given 50 rounds of 9mm as “compensation”. Should I have been more vocal about my frustration?

Tactical store

Are there any stores West of Snoqualmie pass that sell tactical stuff? I want to touch some plates. It’s just such a big expense for something I know so little about to buy online.

Mailing legal semi-auto rifle to out of state gunsmith?

Got a new mini-30 and was looking to send it to a specialist gunsmith in CO to bed the action, trigger work, etc. Since it’s already my rifle, do I even need to use an FFL to mail it? Any issues with them sending it back to me once the work is done? Would I need to receive it at an FFL and go through a waiting period again, for something I already own? Thanks. Been reading through forums here, but the laws on this seem nebulous…

Ranges to practice draws and draws from concealment?

Fed Way Discount says I have to be certified to practice draws there, just unsure where I can get a certification / the cost and time for one.

Rain City says I have to get their membership to draw there (not a bad membership to get IIRC)

Does anyone know what other ranges I can check out (preferable in King County) I just don't have time anymore to go to my usual outdoor spots.

Applying for CCW

Hi, am a non resident alien who is travelling to Washington and other states. Ill mostly be in rural areas and we figured that we would need protection in case something happens. I applied and was approved to travel with a gun on an ATF form 6NIA, however I dont know whether a ccw permit is required when in nature (forests, etc) and while hunting and hiking.

If a CCW is needed, how do I apply and what is the process?

Purchase Firearm

Recently went to a Gun Store to purchase a handgun. I dont have an in state ID or DL but my vehicle registration shows my current address here. At first they said they would accept my registration but upon going to complete the purchase they said that they no longer would and it was a grey area and basically said come back with a WA ID or DL. Was something changed because as far as i was tracking i was able to use my vehicle registration as proof of residence to purchase.

What does expired background check really mean?

First time buying since the new system is in place and I got a delay. I am coming really close to the 30 day window, I am confident I would eventually get a proceed but am wondering what actually happens at the end of 30 days? Do you get a denial or do they just cancel the check and never complete it?

Anybody on here ever sell on Northwest firearms?

Thinking about selling my Ruger precision rifle. Not sure how transfers work. Do I go to them or do they go to me? Or is that something me and the buyer have to work out? Are there any other good websites for selling locally?

I-2050 petition to repeal AWB

I just learned today that I-2050 signature papers are beginning to make their rounds at some local shops. Call around and see if you can find a petition sheet to sign at whatever LGS is nearest to you.

That being said, I read the initiative text and it is pretty low effort and overly simplistic. I'm not hopeful that this will progess very far.

UPIN FTW!!!

So, I have been procrastinating on getting my.upin number, thinking it was going to be a pain in the ass. After years of delays and BS with the atf with forum 4s I finally did some research and got my upin. It was super easy, just fill out the VAF paperwork online, go to usps and pay 50$ for your fingerprinting and I got my UPIN number 8 days later. That being said, iv had 2 suppressors in jail for 2 months now, I only went out and bought them because of the "quick turnaround times", well I should have known better. After i got my UPIN however, I got both cans released 2 days after getting my UPIN. went out and bought another 9mm can, got approved in 72 hours. Why the fuck did I wait to do this??!!

Mayor Harrell's new wishlist on gun control

ICYMI, Harrell put out a statement on gun control last week after the school shooting. Zero mention of gangs, just those icky violent guns.

Here's his wish list which I'm sure we'll see in Olympia shortly. It includes the usual talking points of ending preemption, as well as carry bans in parks and community centers and a permit to purchase system.

The City will seek partnerships with State legislators and other jurisdictions and will pursue an aggressive state legislative agenda to reduce gun violence by supporting supply-side intervention policies, including, but not limited to:

- establishing a permit-to-purchase system

- restricting bulk purchases of weapons

- requiring the safe storage of firearms, particularly in vehicles

- repealing statewide preemption of local gun laws

- prohibiting weapons in public spaces and other spaces where children are present such as parks and community centers

Is 3D-printing of non-stamped parts legal in WA?

Hey folks,

I know our state has a ghost gun law that makes it illegal to 3D print guns without having them serialized. I was wondering if that also applied to printing single parts to put onto an existing, serialized firearm?

For example, could I print a new buttstock for a serialized, non-printed gun that I already own?

EDIT: To be clear this is all hypothetical. I don't own a 3D printer, it's just something I've been considering as a future purchase, and that I want to understand the laws around.

Barrel Shroud

Shower thought: A "barrel shroud" with spikes on it would be legal since it wouldnt be designed to protect from heat. It would be designed not to be held in the first place.

Gun Purchase Eligibility

I’m 20 right now in WA and want to get a bolt action or lever rifle. However, I am confused in regard to whether my immigration status allows me to purchase a firearm. My asylum was granted and I have been waiting for my green card for the past year, am currently an immigrant status (rather than non-immigrant visa) and am technically a permanent resident. Only issue is I don’t have a physical green card yet, but I do have my alien number and other personal documents. Can anyone tell me if I can purchase a firearm, and if possible specific to WA state?

Where to sell privately?

Disclaimer: this is NOT a for sale post , as that goes against reddits policy. just need advice.

I recently purchased this G48 MOS brand new. Ive put about 250 rounds through it, and realizing im just not a Glock guy. Im not sure how to go about selling it, as ive never sold a firearm before. I have no friends that are interested, and i dont wanna get fucked over selling it to a pawn shop for $200.

So the question is, how can i go about finding a private party to sell to? Or is there a gun shop in snohomish county that takes trade ins? Ive heard selling on gunbroker is a shitty experience so i would like to avoid that if possible. Any suggestions?

Range in Seattle metro to shoot prone and seated?

Trying to practice for my next Appleseed and work on skills, and was looking for a range in Seattle/Eastside area where shooting prone and seated at 25yds is possible. Almost everywhere I’ve found requires shooting from a bench so far? I think the bothell club does, but rather pricy membership only and a 45-60m drive away….so looking at other options.

Thanks!
