Has anybody purchased a rifle or shotgun in Wa. State in the past 3 months ? Reason for asking, I was told by 2 different people that they purchased a shotgun recently.. BUT,.. They had to wait 5 days to pick it up.. As far as I know, a shotgun or rifle can be purchased by anyone over 18 and you can take it home right then and there.. Pistols require a waiting period unless the buyer has a concealed weapons permit. If you have a permit, you can take it home right then and there.. ?? Confused ?? Having to wait for a rifle or shotgun ? Something is fishy here..
