Moving to WA state, possibly

4040 94
Apologies if this has been asked.
I have done some reading and some search to not find a "correct" answer.
Things are happening in my life, and moving to WA state is a semi-viable option.
For anyone who has done the move from CA, or other state that requires gun registration, what needs to happen? Just take them with me and not do anything?
My understanding from the reading I have done, is that they do not have to be registered, except for buying from dealer, and not PPT?
Thanks.

My wife was born in WA (East side) and we have a lot of family living all over the state. I have a close friend (hired together at my former agency) who left early and lives up there (north of Seattle area). We've made frequent trips to WA over the last 30-odd years, mostly in the greater Seattle and Peninsula areas.

If we ever leave CA, WA is most likely going to be our destination for the rest of our lives. The gun laws still seem a few decades behind the convoluted, restrictive ones here in CA. There are many, many other things to consider than just gun laws when it comes to choosing a state, though, even as a retiree.

I see my contribution as a conservative being helpful to areas which have seen a gradual influx of more liberal thought. CA needs more folks of a conservative inclination, but other states, like WA, could probably use it, too. ;)

The liberals from CA ruined WA. They can have the state now...
You do realize that CA has voted Republican in more presidential elections since 1900 that WA has, right? :p WA's also voted Democrat more times in the last 10 presidential elections that CA (barely, though, since CA has voted Dem in those elections since '92).

Boeing is known as a leftist hotbed?
Well, it is in Seattle. ;)

Known very few, but one of them is family and retired after many, many years of work there. He apparently liked the kindred spirits there, and he's incredibly liberal (even though he once told me he considered himself conservative, but that's probably a subtle nuance among really left leaning liberals that escapes me ;) ).
