    Travel cross country to NW from Fla

    Was not sure were to post this. I will be traveling from Florida to Washington state in coming weeks. Looking at
    Reciprocity Maps it looks like my Florida permit is good until I hit the west coast. I will not be going thru California, but want visit Oregon and destination Washington. Any advise appreciated. Guess I could just lock up in a lock box if needed.

    Both of those States are becoming Calif 1&2. Too bad do not know someone could leave it with. Being out of state probably less lenient. (if they are even lenient to anyone). Couple of members are from Oregon and Wash. Maybe PM them.

    Oregon does not reciprocate with anybody for concealed carry. My Utah concealed permit is good in Washington.

    Oregon is an open carry state for anyone eighteen or older. Oregon allows local governments to regulate open carry. Multnomah County (Portland) bans loaded open carry. Several cities either ban loaded open carry or ban loaded open carry in parks or other locations within the city limits.

    Oregon Firearms Federation has good information. https://www.oregonfirearms.org/

    Remember that the concealed carry laws are different in every state that you pass through, and you have to follow the local law within each state.

    Get the regulations from each state you'll travel through and keep a copy on your computer. Some sites like NRA and USA Carry have summaries that are useful, but not complete. There can be some subtle differences that will get you into felony trouble.

    Be particularly careful of the Federal "Gun Free School Zones Act". Many states, including mine, do not recognize out of state permits for overriding this act within their state. This means that the Federal 1,000 foot no-guns "bubble" around school property applies. It is very difficult to drive anywhere in an urban environment without driving on a street within 1,000 feet of a school boundary. Get caught speeding in their special "School Zone" speed traps and you could end up in trouble.

    Also note that land managed by the Army Corps of Engineers continues to prohibit firearms possession. This is more important in Western states with large tracts of Corps managed land. There has been a lawsuit active for years trying to resolve this. Many states now permit carry in their park systems and so does the Federal government, but the Corps can manage state owned land as well as Federal land.

    I have an app on my iPhone called CCW. It gives great information on your state’s carry info and other states where you can carry. I think it is .99 in the App Store. I like it because the info is always with me.

    Be very careful with reading the states as you pass through. Especially, if you have a multi-state permit (similar to Florida and Utah's) because you have to beware of the "non-resident" portion of the state you're traveling through. A specific example, which applies directly to me because of my grown children living in Colorado and I'm a resident of Washington State with a Utah permit. Colorado recognizes the Utah permit BUT only for Utah resident's, not non-resident. I'm sure there are plenty of other "land mines" out there waiting for the unwary traveler. If I may ask, where in Washington will you be visiting? A lot of the advice we can give you depends on where you'll be stopping.

    I'm meeting some friends in East Port Orchard, and staying in Bremerton. I can leave my piece at my friends in E. Port Orchard while there.

    I will get that app!

    But then "by leaving it" you have transferred it and will require a FFL to do so, and then when you want it back you need a FFL to transfer it back to a FFL in Florida as you are not a resident and Fed Law does not allow a transfer to a out of State person.

    Transfer does not mean "selling" it means possession.

    If you want more info on this I can give you a link to a thread on another forum. Yes, it is all convoluted and probably ignored but just saying

    You cannot legally transfer possession of a firearm to another individual across state lines without the services of an FFL.

    ABSOLUTELY TRUE for Washington State. A few years ago, the idiots passed an initiative called 594 that did this trick on a state level.

    Fortunately, you're not in hostile country, such as Seattle and it's burbs. Remember, Bremerton has a large military population and many military/military support bases.

    Get your hosts to take you around to the Olympic Peninsula and the largest Rain Forest in the US. Average of 300 inches annually.
