Old shooter getting back in

Gday, Im an Australian, lived in the WA for nearly 16 years on a business visa. I did a fair amount of rifle & some hand gun shooting back in Australia before the government made a hard left turn on gun laws. I recently attained my green card (permanent residency) I'll be eligible to apply for citizenship in about 3 years. I would like to get my CC but Im concerned about whether or not I can get one that will cover WA OR CA NV as I travel through many of for business & what is the process for applying for #A hand gun & #B CC.
Thanks & happy shooting :s0042:

Welcome to NWFA. Since NWFA isn't a legal advice site, I won't offer any.
That said you may want to research getting both an WA & Utah carry permits as it would give you reciprocity in 33 states as I recall.

Congrats on taking steps towards obtaining your citizenship! As much as people like to complain about the U.S. it is still the greatest country that is, and has ever existed on earth.

For firearm/CCW considerations I recommend starting local. Obtain your WA permit and then branch out. Check out Concealed Carry Permit Information By State (Updated Mar. 23, 2019) and build your permits to what suites your needs.

Safe shooting!

    This shop is an extortion racket. It’s the only one in town and charges like a monopoly. He can’t fulfill commitments and he won’t provide estimates.
