    Hey guys, I just got stationed in Ft.Lewis and I'm dieing to learn more about this beautiful area. Where's the good offroading/ hiking locations? I'd like to attend some meets to. Thanks for the help dudes and I look forward to meeting the Washington tacoma crew.

    P.S feel free to post up some wheelin'/outdoor pictures too.

    Yeah. Just hit us up with questions and we'll answer them!

    We just had a Seattle Area Meet & Greet. Hopefully we can get another one in the works.

    Not real sure about the offroading (a lot of places are shutting down their offroad areas in WA) but Oregon has some good stuff. As for the hiking/outdoors, you can find something different to do on any day of the week.

    Oh -- and soak up the sunshine while it lasts. October-May is the shitty season.

    What are the gun laws like here? In Maryland they sucked ass, just wondering if they are bad here too.

    Welcome to Washington!
    (the good one)

    Not only is it more beautiful than the other Washington, your gun rights are exercisable! Gun purchases are simple and the CPL process is easy. Hunting ain't too bad either.

    Sweet dude thanks. You wouldn't happen to know how old you have to be to buy an assault rifle would you? I know in MD it was 21 for hand gun and assault rifle.

    21 for handgun in WA, 18 for rifle/shotgun - no permit required. Do note RCW 9.41.060, section 8 which allows concealed carry in vehicle/on person without a permit when meeting the specified provisions.

    You can buy a rifle/shotgun in WA without a WA driver's license to my knowledge. Buying a pistol I am less sure of; I believe you can, though checking with a local FFL would be a better source.

    Sweet thanks for the info. Guess my next question is where are the best places to buy guns from in this area? I might need a place that can order stuff in because I'm looking for a specific rifle, an LWRC rifle to be exact lol.
