    Nope. Washington and Oregon do not recognize CHL's from the other. A non-res Utah CHL, however, is recognized by Washington, Nevada, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas, the Dakotas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, most of the southern states, etc.

    If you live in Northern Virginia you have to push the "limits". There is no getting around it. I have to remain constantly vigilant of exactly where I am when I am driving up here.

    It really sucks knowing that if you make a wrong turn you could get arrested (for exercising a constitutional right and something thats completely legal just over that imaginary line)

    This is the EXACT kind of 'crap' I hope the (hopefully) correct Supreme Court ruiling would begin to eliminate...hopefully, this Spring!

    I was under a mile away from commiting a felony!
    Correction: You were under a mile away from the State claiming you a criminal, due to simple circumstance and without any evil or intent.

    What would I have done? Found the first place to turn around and then have done so, never to return.

    And THAT is why I do not believe in automatic bans on ex felons ever possessing firearms.

    Each case is different.

    The only way to become an "ex" felon is to receive a Presidential or Gubernatorial pardon.

    Absent a pardon, once a felon, always a felon.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Nice to live in a "gold star state".

    Mental note.... stay away from DC.
    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!
