I have tried searching everywhere for this and it is very hard to narrow it down to my state, which is WASHINGTON. So if anyone here is from Washington and knows the law please brief me. Was wondering basically what the difference was between concealed and open carry. Is it as simple as not visible vs. visible? I know you have to have a permit for concealed carry, do you have to have one for open carry? I read somewhere that the weapon must be visible from 3 out of the 4 angles of the body...is this true? Is it legal for me to carry my gun on my hostler attached to the right side of my belt and walk around in public (given that firearms are permitted).
