Concealed carry is legal for residents with a Washington Concealed Pistol License (CPL) and for non-residents with a license/permit from a state that Washington honors. CPLs are issued to residents and non-residents that are at least 21 years old. There is no current requirement to attend a firearms training course. Washington prohibits the carrying of a concealed handgun without a license except in a persons abode or fixed place of business. In terms of reciprocity, Washington recognizes permits from other states that meet specific requirements.
Although Washington doesnt have a specific castle law, the Washington State Supreme Court has ruled that there is no duty to retreat if a person is in a place they have the lawful right to occupy and they are being assaulted. No person in the state shall be placed in legal jeopardy of any kind whatsoever for protecting by any reasonable means necessary, himself or herself, his or her family, or his or her real or personal property, or for coming to the aid of another who is in imminent danger of or the victim of assault, robbery, kidnapping, arson, burglary, rape, murder, or any other violent crime.
