    Picking up the family and moving to Washington. However, I just wanted to make sure I got a few things right.

    No registration, so there's no need to tell them I'm moving in with guns.

    No AWB, so I can configure my AR into a usable rifle.

    No magazine capacity limits.

    CPLs are issued by the state, and it's shall issue.

    State preemption, so no local BS to deal with.

    Suppressors are legal to own, and shoot as of 2011.

    SBR/SBS are not legal, however AOW is.

    Can not carry a loaded rifle in your vehicle, even with a CPL.

    Did I miss anything? How are the knife laws there? California is pretty good on knives, we can carry any sized folder concealed, and any sized fixed openly. However there is no knife preemption, so locals can make further restrictions but that's not usually an issue.

    All are correct.

    No loaded long guns not just rifles in vehicles.

    In NFA DD is also legal but Full Auto is not.

    Here are all the WA laws, Chapter 9.41 RCW: FIREARMS AND DANGEROUS WEAPONS They are WAY shorter then CA and for the most part pretty straight forward.

    Yes, I did read the law but I like to make sure there's no "gotchas" that I missed. :)

    As for knives, it seems there's no law against them so long as your intent is not malice, correct?
