    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.

    (IIRC)

    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.

    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.
