That's much better.

IANAL and I'm certainly not familiar with RCW 9.41.060(9). There are a lot of things that I can't explain and I find the list grows daily. Among those inexplicables is why the young CHL was gunned down in the Costco entrance in Las Vegas last week or why the veteran DPD LEO accidentally shot the rookie. I can't explain how I got so old as dumb as I am. I used to know a lot of things, alas.

If you want to carry your gun into a Washington bank in a sack, have at it. It might work for a younger more spry guy but I wouldn't want to try it. Good luck in your travels along life's sometimes rocky road. :tiphat:

Most firearms are not very heavy so I would simply put it in a bag and carry it in, if I did that.

Megs,

If you did that, you would be an immediate candidate for the local hoosegow if not shot dead on the spot. No left coast state recognizes a Texas CHL and you would be toting a concealed weapon into a bank for puposes unknown.

A better approach might be to meet the bank manager, introduce yourself with identification, explain your mission and then come back tomorrow after he has had a chance to check you out through your local bank and let him/her show you to your new safe deposit box with your boxed weapon.

Re: Travel to Canada w/ handgun

Joe, you didn't give us your itinerary. FWIW, neither NV, CA or OR recognize a Texas CHL...either.

Canada's handgun restrictions are a primary reason that we don't take our modest 'lil travel trailer to Alaska while we still have our health and servicable vehicles. Of course, cost of the journey raises its ugly head too.
