    So after I take my handgun class and get the certificate I make an appointment with WCSO and show up with my $65 and paperwork. But the question I haven't been able to find by searching is, what does the testing entail? Written, competency, etc?

    Thanks folks.

    I just assumed there was a test when you went to get your license, I was reading the FAQ on WCSO's website and I thought it alluded to there being a test. Might have been wrong.

    Only one. There's different ways to establish residency.

    I just applied.
    You must bring to appointment;
    A. Two pieces of identification, one must be a photo id showing your current residential address, or residency establishing documentation.
    B. Your handgun safety class certificate card or DD214.
    C. A check, Cash or money order payable to Washington county. Fees are non refundable.
    Proof of citizenship at the time of appointment,IE, Passport, US birth cert or naturalization papers.
    I went to the sheriffs office and you can ask for your time of appointment.
    Be well.

    Not sure how long in OR. It's been a while.

    But in WA the requirement is: Be a United States citizen or a permanent resident alien with permanent resident card (green card).

    Do you guys recommend a live class or internet class? My father is going to teach me how to shoot so I'm not worried, really, about having another instructor. He's a lifetime NRA member, Master Hunter, has his CHL and he stuffs dead animals for a living... he knows his way around a trigger hah!

    There is nothing wrong with overlearning something. I think you'd get more from a live class then the internet. You can ask questions and it's a lot more interactive then just staring at a screen. The internet is faster and easier but just like anything else in life. The more you put into it, the more you'll get out. Do yourself the favor and go to the live class.

    Just my 2 cents.
