I-1639 Firearms Safety Training Immediately Following the NW Preparedness Expo
In 2018, the voters of Washington State approved WA Initiative 1639 which, among other things, requires the successful completion of an approved firearm safety training course by all residents wanting to purchase ANY semi-automatic rifle (including rifles like the Ruger 10/22). If you would like to read a summary of I-1639 prepared by Washington Policy Center please click here, or if you would like to read the full text of the initiative please click here.
Kaery Concealed has designed I-1639 Firearm Safety as a special course to not only meet, but far exceed the requirements. In addition to exceeding the I-1639 firearm safety training requirements, this course also meets the requirements for obtaining an Oregon Concealed Carry Permit.
Course fee with advance registration here is $47/person or $85/buddy pass (2 seats) — at the door course fee is $57/person or $110/buddy pass.
Course Topics Include (as outlined in Initiative-1639):
–Basic firearms safety rules
–Firearms and children including secure gun storage and talking to children about gun safety
–Firearms and suicide prevention
–Secure gun storage to prevent unauthorized access and use
–Safe handling of firearms
–State and federal firearms laws, including prohibited firearms transfers
Additional Topics Include:
–Getting your Oregon CCW
–Getting your Washington CCW
–Traveling with firearms
Classroom only, no live fire and no test required. Upon course completion, attendees will be issued proof of training certificates and wallet cards that satisfy I-1639 requirements.
Why would someone want an Oregon CCW permit? Great question! Oregon accepts only their own concealed carry — they do not honor permits from other states so responsible citizens desiring to travel to or through Oregon with a concealed firearm (on their person or in their vehicle) need the Oregon CCW.
Is I-1639 here to stay or will it be overturned? Although most responsible firearm owners are sickened by the passing of this severely restrictive initiative, the NRA has advised Washington residents to plan to live with I-1639 for a minimum of five years while the most egregious sections are challenged in the courts. The reason behind their advice: although a few sections of the initiative may be thrown out, the majority of the initiative will remain part of WA law — particularly the training requirement (in order to purchase of any semi-automatic rifle) addressed by this course.
Because we are the first training academy in our area to offer this course nearly all of our I-1639 Firearm Safety courses sell out long before the class date — we strongly encourage advance registration so you don’t miss out.
Pay once and train as often as you like for free! As with all Kaery Concealed courses, refresher courses are free, and every course comes with a 100% satisfaction or your money back guarantee. The text of I-1639 states that this training course must be repeated every 5 years — which means if you take the course through Kaery Concealed, you will pay for the course one time and you will be able to repeat the course at no charge (refreshers are always free).
