Gun Bans

Washington State Law

In Washington you must be 18 years old to buy a rifle or shotgun. If you want to buy a pistol or revolver you must be 21.

In order to carry a gun concealed in Washington State you need to have Concealed pistol license.

Concealed Pistol License

Concealed pistol licenses are governed at the state level. They are, however, issued by your local law enforcement agency. If you live within city limits you can apply for your cpl at your city police department. If you live in unincorporated county you would go to your county Sheriff's office.

A Washington CPL does not automatically allow you to carry a concealed weapon in every other state. If you wish to travel with your concealed pistol, check with the other states you plan to visit for information on reciprocity and non-resident CPLs. Check this list to get started.
