CCP is pretty easy to get... It took me less than a week getting one from Lynnwood. I don't carry but it makes buying a gun much easier and I have the choice if I wanted.
It is easy to get your CPL (conceal pistol license; that's WA ST terminology). If you can pass a background check to buy a firearm, you can pass the CPL background(they are the same, and the questionaire is the same)
I believe in open and conceal carry. I have my CPL.
I only open carry when I have my shirt tucked in.

I have seen too many people get unlawfully detained or arrested because they police overreact to open carriers. The end result of nothing happening to the open carriers, just more of a big inconvenience to them.
I literallty have Chapter 9.41 RCW bookmarked on my phone. This way I keep up to date on the laws, and if needed, it's readily available for referencing.
