No a Washington state law was changed. Before that if you were LEO or military either full time or reserve. You could legally tranfer pre 86 guns in. Senator Adam Smith from Kent had a vote to change the law to read that LEO and military could posses in official duty only. The guns that were in were grandfathered in. That was done in 1996. There is a little over 1,200 legal tranferables in this state. But they can only be sold out of state. The guy that I know has a Thomspon is retire Army National Gaurd from Camp Murry next to JBLM. My friend has more than just a Thompson. He has a dozen legal guns in this state. I have known him since the early 90s. He is also a retired Seatle Fireman.
