Is it legal to carry concealed in an airport (PDX)?
I believe that you are fine up until the scanners and ticket checkers. That got passed/changed fairly recently from what I recall.
BUT! If you do accidentally flash your sidearm, be prepared for a lot of men with guns and badges ordering you on the ground until they properly sort things out.
I remember reading that the port authority tried to stop it but OFF fought them and won. Details are fuzzy though so don't quote me on that.
If a boarding pass is needed to get into the area then you cannot take it.
Anywhere else is public space/fair game.
You are all correct.
Yep, right up till you get to the TSA checkpoints.
Even so, I leave mine in the car, I'm too old and broke to be a test case!
Yes, I work at PDX and noticed months ago (maybe more) that all the signs that were on the doors stating no firearms as you enter are now gone.
An explanation is on this page. This is a good reference for Oregon gun owners, imo.

I provide a private consier service (driver and bag boy) to a wealthy individual and his employees who are in and out of PDX all the time. I carry in and out of the airport and it's shops and restaurants every time. I am discrete and have never been made, but it is legal.
Ditto what ? I sometimes don't understand people around here. Some say "stick it to the man" when it would clearly be a ticket to jail, others "play it safe" when the act or activity is well established and legal.
C'mon FD, he's speakin' hippie, man! You know, Tommy Chong style hippie, man. You said you're a hippie, right, man?
