What is the deal on handguns in the state of washington? I usually go down to Pendleton OR, and pick up rifles, but am thinking about a Walther P22 for fun. The dealer said they have to transfer it to a washington state dealer. Is there anything else I need to know?
Thanks

Thats not a WA thing it's a federal thing. Handguns transferred through dealers in your state of residence only.

So is there a waiting period and do I have to do anything else?

WaMag,

Check this guy
East County Guns

He had the best prices I had seen on P22s when I worked there. He does online sales too, just need a local FFL to affect the transfer.

Course, no sales tax in OR.

Five business day waiting period is involved unless you have your CPL. If you have your CPL, it's NICS check, pay your money, and you go out the door.

On a P22 you might pay more for the transfer fee and shipping then you will for the WA state sales tax.

Sportsman Warehouse in the Tri-cities has them for ~$230 and 5" for around $257. Is there a five day waiting period on a transfer?

If you don't have a CPL, then yes there will be a waiting period.
