Missouri Attorney General is reporting they have signed an agreement with Washington on Reciprocity. Washington State has not posted info about this agreement on their website as of this afternoon. People in Missouri have informed me (They have some hard working people there who are outside government working on the reciprocity agreements) that the agreement has been signed by Washington and they have a copy of it.
This brings to 34 the number of states Missouri has signed with. I am hoping that this will move Washington forward in signing more agreements. This would be Washington's 8th agreement.
Handgunlaw.us will be updated in the next 24 hours to reflect this change in reciprocity.

Now if Missouri can adopt a "Lifetime Permit" like Indiana!
That would be sweeeeet!
From what I can tell, Mo. has a pretty good ccw law compared to a lot of other states.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
Excellent news. I have contacted the Washington AG asking why Arizona is not yet listed as a recognized reciprocity state since AZ meets all of the Washington requirements:
According to this URL: Concealed Weapons
There are the 3 requirements for CCW permit reciprocity in Washington State:
1. The other state must have a reciprocal statute allowing Washington residents to carry concealed weapons in the other state if the resident has a Washington concealed pistol permit; and
2. The other state does not issue concealed pistol licenses to persons under twenty-one years of age; and
3. The state requires mandatory fingerprint-based background checks of criminal and mental health history for all persons who apply for a concealed pistol license.
If you look here you'll see requirement 1 is met by Arizona:

If you look here you'll see requirements 2 & 3 are met by Arizona:
