Is it legal to trade long rifles with someone in Idaho if I’m from Washington and I go to Idaho to do the trade? I’m just curious if this is even legal?

Generally speaking, any firearms transfers across state lines need to go through an FFL, per federal law. Long guns can go through an FFL in either the buyer's or seller's state.

So, speaking generally again, yes you could do that if you meet at an Idaho FFL.

Now . . . 1639 has really fucked us in WA, and complicated things. I don't believe that an FFL in Idaho will transfer a semi-auto rifle to you. Any other kind of long gun should be fine.

I would talk to the FFL first, and make sure they're good with it.

Ok awesome, thank you for your response. I was really just curious if that scenario would even be possible with all our new laws in our state. Thanks again.

Doesn't that law everyone hates require that any gun sale with one person being in or from Washington have a background check?

If you mean this one: https://app.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=9.41.113
The transfer itself also has to be taking place in Washington.
There's also a handful of cases listed where a background check isn't required.
