    New here may be movin from CA to WA or OR

    hey im new i may be moving to WA or OR in a few years so i figured that id come here to check a few laws out and get advice.

    the Questions i have are as follows for both states

    as a private citizen can i own a SBR?
    What Rifles are legit in each state?

    i know both are CCW issue states but im wondering if there are any that are restrictions to applying for one other than a clean background.

    I would tell you of a state close to both of those that is more gun friendly than either of them, but we have too many people moving here as it is. A little investigation might be worth you while. Sorry for the distraction.

    In Oregon you can own the following items that are regulated the the National Firearms Act:
    • Machine Guns
    • Silencers
    • Any Other Weapon (AOW)
    • Destructive Devices (DD)
    • Short Barreled Shotguns (SBS)
    • Short Barreled Rifles (SBR)

    No permit or license is required to own a firearm and there is no waiting period or goofy 10-round limit for magazine capacity. Concealed Handgun Licenses are "shall-issue". There are no restrictions on "assault weapons". Oregon CHL is no good in Washington, but you can do like me and get a Utah permit which is valid there.

    ------------

    In Washington you can own the following items that are regulated the the National Firearms Act
    • Silencers
    • Any Other Weapon (AOW)
    • Destructive Devices (DD)

    however you cannot own these items
    • Machine Guns*
    • Short Barreled Shotguns (SBS)*
    • Short Barreled Rifles (SBR)*

    No permit or license is required to own a firearm in Washington. Concealed carry licenses are "shall-issue". There are no restrictions on "assault weapons".

    Hope that helps. My reference material is a book called "Traveler's Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States" (2009 edition).
