    where are the gun shows in washington? i live in seattle, so I dont want to venture out TOO far. I know their are some at the puyallup fair grounds, but you need to be a member to purchase. any other shows that go on?

    Washington Arms Collectors (WAC) runs the two big ones around Seattle. Puyallup and Monroe are the locations. Membership is required to purchase.

    http://www.washingtonarmscollectors.org/shows.asp

    If there are others, I am unaware of them.

    In addendum to PaulBK's post, you have to pay to get into the show, but if you purchase your membership, the entry fee is credited towards membership. All shows held by WAC are free entry to members. You must also be a member to sell, in addition to purchase firearms.

    There is also one in Chehalis but I've never been to it. Pick up a Little Nickle. They are usually posted in there.

    Was this application online? I've never heard of that. Just go to any WAC show and look for the membership table. They'll process you and get you a membership badge that day.

    I'm gonna be their (Puyallup) on the 14th if my paycheck show up early instead of late (I get paid the 15th, so either Friday or Monday). So cross your fingers for me. :)
