Washington Gun laws transport

I having trouble finding info on a legal way to transport a gun in Washington state. Lets say you buy it and then come back to take it home or are on your way to the shooting range. Do you have to keep the bullets away from the gun? Does the gun need to be in a box, the glove, under the seat or in the trunk and what if you don't have a trunk?

I found plenty of info on what you need to do to buy and own a gun but nothing on transportation.

Oh yeah we do have to have concealed weapon permits to carry a concealed weapon but does that mean one could carry it in the open without a permit?

You don't have a trunk to transport a gun? Are you on a motorcycle or something?

The laws have to do with ACCESS to the firearm. So, if you put it in a box, and it's locked so no one can just open it, you would be fine. Separating ammunition from the weapon is also an extra step to show you are being cautious.

I'm not a WSPO, so you might call the Washington State Police to get an idea.

You can carry in the open without a permit, except for places like schools, court houses etc. Oddly enough, you can carry in the State Capital. They installed metal detectors after 9/11 but didn't stop anyone from bringing in guns if they wanted to. They just got rid of the metal detectors as well. You can have it on the front seat, if you don't have a concealed weapons permit and be fine. I wouldn't have it loaded, but that is for other reasons.

Yeah a SUV. Trucks, jeeps, and vans also don't have trunks just backseats. Oh and the little area to put groceries which I guess is trunk like but is it a trunk. hmmmm maybe it is.

So, what were the metal detectors doing? Making sure no one brought a knife to a gun fight?
