    Hi, I'm new to the forums, and relatively new to gun collecting (addiction?). I don't own a car, and so to make transporting my guns to the range, or out to the dump, I feel like a concealed permit is the only real option. Although, I'm not going to say that carrying would not make me feel infinitely safer in a more and more unsafe world. I would go to OFA for the class, but the not having a car is not so convenient in getting to Lebanon. So what I want to know is this: are there any good instructors in the Portland Metro area?

    If this is in the wrong area for this question, let me know and I will gladly move it.

    Thanks,
    Jordan

    The Clackamas County Sheriff's training center will do a full hands on practical. That's a *great* course.

    If you are more in a hurry, the Multnomah Sheriff's station at around 122nd and Glisan does either monthly or weekly evening classes that only require one non-hands-on class ($20).

    So there's the good experience vs. hurry and cheap.

    Thank you very much for your input. I think I will do the Multnomah Sheriff's class just for streamlining this whole process. Once I'm licensed, I can legally take my gun to a real range for a more in depth and thorough class. At least, that seems like a decent plan to me. The OFA class looks like a fun and useful way to spend a day even if I already have the license.
