Washington State Concealed Carry Reciprocity

According to the Washington State Attorney General's site full reciprocity on concealed carry permits has increased to the following states:

  • Michigan
  • Mississippi
  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • North Carolina

This means my Washington permit is good in those states, and people with permits from those states do not need any additional permits to carry in Washington. Michigan always accepted any state-issued permit, but Washington, until now, did not reciprocate.

In contrast, Oregon has no reciprocity with anyone. You need an Oregon permit to carry in Oregon, and it depends on the sheriff in a particular country on whether they will issue to you or not.

As usual, I recommend using the packing.org license tool to start your research on where your permit is accepted, followed up by checking the applicable state laws.

When it comes to Washington, the wa-ccw Yahoo group is a good resource. There is a corresponding group for Oregon, which I created. I am also an assistant moderator for the wa-ccw list.

Thanks for the cool site. Sometimes there is value in leaving old postings open for further comments.

An updated list of WA reciprocity can be found here... http://www.atg.wa.gov/page.aspx?id=7772
That is the AG's site, so confidence is high of it's accuracy.
