Default hiking with a firearm in washington state

Okay, I like to do a lot of hiking and as much as I can. In the state of washington, it's illegal to discharge a firearm in national parks trails but okay to carry a firearm. For one, I think that's pretty weird, if my life is endangered I am going to to defend myself and ask questions later.

Is this the same for other states?

I'm not sure.

It is illegal to discharge your firearm in a grocery store too, but if in self defense I think it is okay.

National Parks no.
National Forest it's A-ok if you're more than 150yards from a Forest Service Road or designated trail. I have access to a National Forest at the end of our road. I target shoot in there all of the time.

I always carry when in the WA woods. Usually open carry.

I retired from mt rainier nat park after 20 yrs. THE gov changed the law that used to ban the carry of weapons in the park now that has changed you can carry open if you dont have a ccw but if you have your shirt or jacket covering a handgun you need a ccw, ALSO there is NO SHOOTING in the park [AS IN TARGET PRATICE} but in defense of your life that is the reason they changed the law. After 20 years 10 of those working on trail crew I was never in a situation with critters where i needed a firearm. [THAT WOULD BE 4 LEGGED CRITTERS} now the 2 leg kind is a different story On newyears day 2 years ago 1 of our female law enforcement rangers was killed.

Thanks for the insight! There is always different things people say about firearms.

It now makes sense that there is no discharge for target practice

Sort of like being in an area on an ocean beach where swimming isn't allowed, then climbing the rocks and slip, falling in deep water. In that case, well, just go right ahead and swim your way safely to shore.
