Even though they list them as essential, states have the right to close them. Just thought the article was interesting.

Sound Loan & Pawn in Everett.
They're an FFL that is still open right now.

Just an FYI for anyone trying to find a place to have a firearm shipped to and/or do a transfer.

As of yesterday County Line in Mckenna was open.
As i had it explained to me by a gun shop because they are technically a pawn shop and pawn shops are part of banking they can stay open. Just what I was told.

I just received an email from Low Price Guns in Bellevue that they are open by appointment only:

We are currently Open by Appointment Only-

You can call our store from 11am to 6pm, Monday through Saturday, to arrange an appointment to purchase a firearm or ammunition from the list of inventory below in this email, which is available now at our Bellevue store. (See Bellevue Store Inventory Available Now below in this email)

You can purchase online at www.Lowpriceguns.com - The online inventory on our website is not at our Bellevue location, and upon purchase online, will be shipped to our location from one of our suppliers. It is currently taking up to 10 business days to receive orders placed online from our suppliers at our Bellevue location. Once we receive your online order shipped from our supplier at our store, we will call you to arrange an appointment to come to the store to start paperwork for the background check. Paperwork cannot be done or started offsite, or before we have the firearm at our Bellevue location.




Please call 425-614-4867 to:

Arrange an appointment to purchase a firearm, and to start a background check for a store inventory item in stock at our Bellevue location from the list below in this email.
Arrange an appointment to do the background check paperwork on a transfer firearm purchased elsewhere being shipped to us.
Arrange pickup of a firearm where you have already been into our store to start the paperwork, and wait period is up, or we have received a "proceed" status on your paperwork.




*Background checks / Paperwork must be done at our Bellevue store location by appointment only, and we must have firearm at our Bellevue location to start check.

*We are still accepting firearms transfers, and receive shipments daily. When we receive a transfer firearm, we will contact you to make an appointment to start background check paperwork.

West Coast Armory is open, but they are not accepting transfers from online retailers or doing consumer to consumer transfers.

Not sure but I know your best bet is gonna be a pawn/loan shop because, as already mentioned, they've been deemed essential "financial institutions".

I find it odd that west coast would be open and NOT doing transfers. 🤦🏻‍♂️
So i’m assuming they are selling guns, but why not protect the 2A and do transfers. The only thought is they are taking advantage of this crisis and forcing people buy “their guns” by not doing transfers.

Looking at their website, it seems they had more demand than they were able to satisfy seeing one customer at a time.

Probably trying to protect themselves. A transfer requires 3 people. The store employee, the buyer and the seller.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Does anyone else have a firearm being held hostage at their ffl because Inslee closed gun shops?

Very interesting map from the NRA on which states restrict gun sales. Shocking, lib states are the infringers.
