I am hoping some of you can give me a bit of guidance.
I am planning on traveling to WA here in a couple of weeks to visit my parents for about a week and thought this would be a good opportunity to learn how to travel through the airports and in another state that recognizes my new UT permit.

Here is the info I am seeking:

1) I found a link a while back here at UCC (but can't find it now) that let you click on a specific state and it would give you a birds-eye-view of their gun laws. I did utilize both Handgunlaw.us and usacarry.com and saw that WA honors UT permits as do all surrounding states except OR -- but the site I am trying to find is the one that actually lists a brief overview of where you can legally CC and where you can't. Anyone off-hand know which site I am referring to???

2) I have read the previous posts and basic information regarding packing at the SLC airport as well as how to pack the weapon for travel. I still have a few "?"s to this regard:
a) When you travel do you CC the weapon to the airport and then remove it, unload it, and store it just prior to checking-in or do you pack it all up at home and just travel to the airport unarmed? (I assume the latter)
b) My weapon is an SD9sub. It came in a hard PLASTIC box that can be locked. Is this a sufficient case for transport in a plane (I only ask b/c I'm so used to seeing people transporting their weapons in the metallic cases).

3) If any of you have travelled to WA, any info. regarding the same would be appreciated.

4) Any other info. you might think will help me would be great also!

Thank You!

That is a very interesting site. It looks like it has a lot of useful information on it. I did notice something that has me puzzled. In Oregon the Utah permit is not recognized but Utah recognizes the Oregon permit. That doesn't sound very fair to me. Does anyone know why it is that way?

In a nutshell, the people of Utah are more gun friendly (as evidenced by our elected officials and their actions). We will honor any permit regardless of whether or not the other state recognizes our permit.

So is there anything that we as CCW holders can do to convince Oregon to recognize us?

Ruger -- Thanks for the link! This wasn't the site I had in mind, but it's an equally, if not better, reference than the one I was thinking of. Plus it has the added benefit of being compiled by the NRA which is a plus.

Life isn't fair.

Utah recognizes, by statute, all permits from any other state. Many states do not return the favor. That's just the way it is.

That was undoubtedly a link to packing.org, which is now defunct.

I typically just pack it in the case in my luggage at home, but that's for convenience. You can carry it, then put it into the locked case when you arrive, BUT do it in your car -- don't do it in the terminal. :shock: You might get tackled by police.

I use my plastic box all the time. It has a hole in the handle designed to take a padlock.

Laws change. I carried there once, but that was about two years ago. Better check the link Ruger Collector provided.

Flying with your firearm
Carry safe! I would certainly keep it concealed there. Some of us often OC here, but don't assume it's the same there.

I used to live in Washington when I worked for the evil empire in Redmond. If you have a raincoat with a hood, be sure to take it along with you.

If you look at page 24 on http://www.handgunlaw.us/documents/USOffLimitsN-W.pdf, you'll see a summary of where you can't carry.

Dr. Dave: Great link, thank you for bringing it to my attention! I'm printing it out also.

I noticed one thing in that link, though; it mentions Indian Territories and says "you must have written permission of the tribal judge". The area where my dad lives almost requires him to drive through Indian territory to get anywhere. Do you know what WA law is for merely driving through the territory with a CCW???

Dr. Dave... as a follow-up to my last post... I would still like your general impression of how WA-state Indian governments view CC'ing while transiting through their lands... however, I looked up the regs for the 3 tribes nearest where I'll be visiting (Lummis, Swinomish, and Tulalip tribes) and all 3 basically said that if you have a permit issued by a state entity then CC'ing is legal.

Was this your impression of other WA-state Indian gov'ts, in general???

Actually, I never came across the subject when I lived there. Usually, if you were hearing a story about Indian governments, it had something to do with governing, casinos, or the like. WA overall struck me as being quite comfortable with the idea of CCW citizens carrying firearms.
