Beretta A300 Ultima

Is it Legal in Washington currently to purchase? I see them available for purchase and pickup at cabelas and other gun stores, but was under the impression semi-automatic shotguns were illegal to sell after the ban last year? Looking for insight…

Possibly website error?

Can I still buy a double stack Glock?

With the magazine ban, any shops out there around King/Pierce County sell double stack Glocks? Mainly a Glock 19 MOS double stack since I like running 15+1.

Pre-requisites to handgun purchase?

Hello. I'm still somewhat new to Washington and I know that the states firearm purchase laws are very strict. In fact I've heard I need to take a course prior to purchasing a handgun here in Washington. I'm a first time gun buyer, and this is something I'd rather not do but I am unfortunately in a very vulnerable position in my life and I'd prefer to be able to protect myself if something bad happened. What are all of the pre-requisites to be allowed to make a purchase? Sorry if this is dumb. I'm clueless.

Moving to Washington

Hello, I’m currently in California and moving to Washington soon. Am I able to legally bring over and possess a California compliant AR? And if so, are there any requirements such as fin grips etc?

Has anybody seen any kelTec SU16s in stores?

It's a weird gun that I've been putting off buying for a while but now it seems like one of the few sa rifles that should still be legal.

SBR a pistol?

If I wanted to fill out a form 1 & throw a micro conversion kit on a pistol, is that legal in WA or is it manufacturing an assault weapon?

Any groups in Clark county that shoot or train together?

I usually just shoot by myself at English pit but would like to find some friends and community to train and shoot with. I'm late 30s, been into firearms for over a decade, built my own AR, also into ham radio and other preppy stuff.

How does Mini 14 Get around assault rifle band?

I was in big 5 and they have rugar mini 14, I think technically it is American Rancher .556/.223 on sale for 500 and change. It has releasable magazine….

What is the difference between this and colt AR? The gun counter guy said it’s becouse it doesn’t have a threaded barrel but that makes no sense.

Thanks

On hunt for a CZ 10P S OR and hard to find with 10 round clip. What are options?

Hello- I am on the hunt for a subcompact CZ 10P that is optic ready but when adding in the 10 clip option it’ll there isn’t much out there and if there is it’s full MSRP.

I was wondering if it is possible to get it shipped and then my FLL can pin the clip or just keep it ? Or maybe see if fun store I buy online from can ship it without clip.

Is it clip or magazine. I think technically it’s magazine. I digress and save that for another day. :)

Thanks so much.

Thanks so much

Buying parts: an update

Yesterday I asked about the legality of purchasing parts for a grand fathered "assault weapon" while it is legal it seems it is up to the distributor on whether or not to sell to Washington.

I purchased parts from HKParts but so far the items have not been shipped and the purchase is still pending. I will update this post on whether or not they ship my items or cancel my order when it happens.

PCC Chassis

We can still buy mini 14s and the Ruger PCC. Has anyone had luck with ordering a different chassis online? Does anyone have a recommendation for a good chassis for a ruger PCC?

Owning gun for visiting Canadians: Guidance needed

Hi everyone! I’m a Canadian who’s on a L1A visa, working in WA. I’ve got a concealed carry permit, however was denied a gun at Sportsman’s Wearhouse (it’s not their fault or anything- it’s just how it showed up on paperwork).

I just mean to reconfirm my understanding, and nothing more. If as a Canadian working in WA on L1A visa is prohibited from acquiring a gun, I’d duly respect the law. I just mean to validate my understanding.

Here are the details, if you need:

  • I got myself a gun permit (it was granted)

  • Ordered a gun from Sportsman’s (it wasn’t in stock)

  • It arrived, and while doing the paperwork there was a message on screen that essentially said that I can’t get a gun because I’m on a “non-immigrant visa” (L1A)

My purpose is to just do a target practice, and if this isn’t allowed, I’m good. WA has so much to offer, so I guess I’d be fine with Archary.

Also - my intent wasn’t concealed carry. I asked for a permit from PD, and I was granted a concealed carry permit. My intent is just learning target shooting, and maybe some day - participate in a competition, that’s it.

I believe I must own a gun to go visit a range - is that a right understanding? If not, I don’t really need to buy one.

I’d Appreciate your advice.

SBR "pre-ban" AW?

Hi all. I have a pin and welded 14.5" Daniel defence that I have owned prior to the ban.

Since it was an assault weapon prior to the ban, I am able to convert it into an SBR now?

Thanks!

Clarification required on parts

I am allowed to purchase new parts for an existing "assault weapon" correct?

I want to buy some new furniture for my PTR91 and just checking to make sure I can buy it with no issues.

Updating address on CPL/renewing

I just moved and I'm updating all of my ID stuff. My CPL expires in November of '25 and still has my old address on it. Should/can I update it now, or should I wait until I'm within a year of it expiring? I got my CPL back in '20 (Pepperidge Farms remember when the local PD wasn't accepting CPL applications in violation of state policy for 6+ months) and so all I remember is that the process is much easier if I renew my CPL within a year of it expiring.

Key holes

I just recently bought a case of Winchester 62 green green tips. I have a 1:7 twist I’ve shot PMC green tips never had a problem, but for some reason, it seems like these just will not stabilize as anybody ever had a problem with Winchester I have a 16” barrel

Can I own a gun?

Caught a non strike felony as a minor and took a plea deal that would seal my case if I did everything they asked. I completed everything they asked for and my case is sealed and has been for 4 years. I said fuck it and applied for a SW and sheriffs called me about my application saying they can see my old case but can’t tell if I was found guilty or not and they were just trying to see if they could approve it then and there . I got scared asked for a refund the gun shop told me the application expired and if I wanted them to resubmit the application I told them no but they did it anyway and called me the next day saying it said to proceed what does this mean?
