Job assignment in Everett, Wa.

I'm heading over to Boeing in Everret, for a new job assignment, and I need to ask. Since, I own a Glock G17 Gen4, I want to bring with me. Will there be any issues? Plus, I'll need a place to stay. I was going to Ontario California. It dried up. So, I'm heading to Everett Washington instead.

No issues. WA does not honor Texas CC permits. Keep your pistol mag unloaded and ammo seperate and out of reach from pistol(auto). I'd try and stay in or close to Everett as the I-5 corridor sucks depending on work hours. Lots to see in the Puget Sound area. I'd stop by a Police station or city hall or check online to see if they will issue you a CPL.

Get a gun safe right away as a sweeping, onerous gun law was just passed in there.
Washington is a shall issue state for concealed carry permits.

Don't carry that pistol loaded in your vehicle until you get a CPL which is easy to get. Obviously a WA DL will help you get a permit in a shorter period of time.

This should cover it.

Traffic sucks in the Everett area. Get as close as you can to your job or you might be spending a lot of time commuting. My neighbor works at Paine Field (Boeing) and he spends many hours a week commuting.

Job assignment in Everett, Wa.

The cost of housing stinks. Traffic stinks. Commuting stinks. I was visiting my mother and sister last week. The real estate sign reads," starting at $900,000.

Good luck in your new position. IMHO, a move anywhere along I-5 isn't worth the quality of life issues you'll face.

According to the new law a trigger lock or cable is sufficient. It won't go into effect until next July anyway, assuming it isn't struck down in the courts. Despite the huge number of liberals living here WA state was extremely gun-friendly up until I-1639 passed this month. About all that's banned completely are full-auto weapons and bump stocks. As a matter of fact WA goes after anyone trying to skirt its machine gun laws with a passion. Just avoid that little problem and you're okay. CPLs are shall-issue to WA residents (I think you have to be here at least 90 days) and so far we've managed to avoid a ban on semi-autos and full-cap mags. However next year will prove interesting as the Democrats increased their grip on power in Olympia. No loaded handguns in a vehicle unless you have a CPL, and no loaded long guns at all (an old anti-poaching law that was never rescinded).

For living space, you'll quickly find that the closer you get to Seattle the worse it gets price-wise. If you can find something in the outlying areas around Everett (like Marysville, Snohomish or even Monroe) the cost of living will be cheaper, but you'll likely deal with a bruising commute no matter where you go. Probably the hardest adjustment will be the difference in climate between Texas and Washington. We basically have four seasons here... cool and wet, cold and wet, still cool and wet, and road construction.

You're going to want to write this down because it's the single most important piece of information you're going to get...

Ready?

Exit 186 in Lynwood...off the 5. The official address is 233 128th St SW. Get off the freeway and head west. Immediately off the freeway you will see a Shell station on the north side of the road. And tucked in behind that Shell Station is your saving grace.

Ralibertos.

HERE is where the Carne Asada burritos live!

And this ain't Tex Mex. So if Tex Mex is your thing, you're gonna be disappointed. Nope...THIS is an authentic Taco Shop. Now it isn't the best Taco Shop on earth. But it's a decent one. And you damn sure ain't in Kansas anymore. I haven't explored all of Washington State. But so far, this is the only real taco shop I've found in this godforsaken taco shop wasteland.

You're welcome.

Now as for the gun stuff, Washington is ok. But liberals are doing their best to change that. CCW's are easily obtainable. Suppressors are legal. At the moment you can take a pistol home same day if you have your CCW. But Washington liberal douches just passed a law that will change that at the beginning of the year, I believe. The Californication of WA has already begun. And it's anyone's guess how long the patriots can keep liberals at bay. My bet is that in five years you won't notice much difference in gun laws between CA and WA. I truly hope I'm wrong.

You should seriously study CA a bit to understand where WA is headed. If there is anything you want from AR's to 30 round magazines to suppressors, do not wait. Buy them sooner than later. Because it's only a matter of time.

God speed!

From the Dryside i.e. Eastern Washington
Yeah 4 seasons, Fall, WInter Spring & Construction

WA State as has been said is a Will or Shall Issue
for the Concealed Pistol License (CPL) Establish
residence, apply and pass all of the background
checks and they issue the CPL thru the local LEO
office. No required written or practical skills tests

Oregon does not recognize the WA State CPL but
you can get a Non-Rez OR CPL Idaho recognizes
the WA state CPL which I like since Idaho is only
8 miles east

If you read the sports section don't be surprized with
reports on Salmon runs.

FYI - starting in February Paine Field Everett will have
airline passenger service to 8 cities Alaskan Air Lines
and Delta?

House prices I guess have leveled out in Seattle a bit
but still high

Plenty of shooting ranges in Pugetopolis

Welcome

Speaking of CPLs I just got my renewed one in the mail today. Good grief, I thought for a moment it wasn't even a real permit because they'd made it extremely plain-jane now. Just your info typed on a plain greenish-white card. I literally could make a more convincing-looking permit on my home PC in a matter of minutes.

I work in Everett and live in Edmonds. It's a 25-minute commute. That said, Everett is an absolute cesspool of tweakers. Needles everywhere. Property crime everywhere. I'm leaving soon. I'm done.

Recently a conservative Washington State political candidate dropped out of a race - due to threats to him & his family.
I wouldn't be happy even going there. No matter how good the Job - you've got to live there 24/7.

Close to the Everett plant, Harbour Pointe and Mukilteo are nice places to live and just a few miles away, you won't have to deal with the I-5 mess.

No guns allowed in vehicles on company parking lots.

In five years? I sure hope you're wrong.

BTW, the burritos sound great. Will stop by if in the area sometime.

Sorry, was just making fun of "the 5"; nobody born or raised in the Seattle area calls it anything but "I-5".
