martmann Posted June 13, 2003 Share Posted June 13, 2003 Fortunately here in Washington state, Per RCW 9.41.060 (8) you can carry concealed, while hiking (or doing any other lawful outdoor recreational activity, or going to, or coming from, that activity) without a permit. Few people know about this though, and I doubt many police know of it, so I'll carry a copy of the law, just so they know I'm not totally full of crap. Still, I'll only carry in extreme areas. So my Question is: Have any of you carried concealed without a permit (under the circumstances stated above, making it legal) while geocaching in Washington state? The reason I ask is that some nice weekday I want to go up to Snoqualmie summit, and hike along the Iron Horse trail, and through the Tunnel. This area seems just extreme enough to justify carrying. I have yet to geocache while carrying a concealed weapon. And don't plan on making a habit of it. But I am interested in any experience/anecdotes you may have. Please though, if you are an anti-gun fanatic, I'll thank you to keep the anti-gun rhetoric to yourself, I'm looking for useful info, not ramblings from somebody who doesn't know a semi-automatic from an automatic. TIA _________________________________________________________ If trees could scream, would we still cut them down? Well, maybe if they screamed all the time, for no reason.
