PS - Glad I live in Washington State so far when it comes to gun laws, concealed carry and home, personal and property defense.

Washington State Law: RCW 9A.16.110: Defending against violent crime
Here's a few links that I found on another forum, hopefully this will help.

Oregon Law links:

Oregon Statutes - Chapter 161 - General Provisions - Section 161.225 - Use of physical force in defense of premises. - Oregon Attorney Resources - Oregon Laws
Premises vs. Property: ORS 161.225 & .229 - Oregon Concealed Carry

Go to the third post down on this link, see "Old Hick's Post"
Heads Up! Castle Doctrine, Self Defense Dan Rather Reports - Page 2 - XDTalk Forums - Your XD/XD(m) Information Source!

That should keep you busy, and hopefully explain some things. I highly recommend Oregon Firearms Federation's book on Understanding Oregon Gun Laws by, Kevin Starrett: Oregon Firearms Federation
