    I started this thread to document my path to carrying concealed in Oregon.

    I completed a CHL class at Douglas Ridge Rifle Club a few years back, but didn't apply for one.
    Crosstrackers of Sandy OR sponsored a CHL class taught by Greg Willis of Oregon Trail Arms
    and I was fortunate to get a seat, attend, and pass Greg's course.

    Tonite (Sunday) I applied and paid ($65) for a Concealed Handgun License and tomorrow will call for an appointment.

    When I got mine from Clackamas County a couple years ago I went in on a day they were taking walk ins. 30 minutes later I was walking out with my CHL in hand. Sadly I don't think they do walk ins anymore.

    I did the same in February. I went in one day to set an appointment and was told to just come in the next day. My CHL was expired though, so I just needed to renew my license. I think it was expired for like 10 years.

    A friend of mine just got her CHL in Clackamas. Took 60 days.

    Why did you retake the class?

    CC accepted mine, and it was 4 years old or something.

    Nice thing about CC is when you show up - you get your card that day.

    Called, reached the answering machine. It said they were overloaded with permit requests and to leave name and number, would receive a call from them.
    Left name and number, we'll see how it goes.

    The Clackamas people are just as good as it gets for the LE crowd. They were nice, helpful, and even promoted their range out there on SE 82nd.

    This afternoon, antsy for action.
    Went to the SE 82nd office to maybe get an appointment.
    Was escorted into the Clackamas Co CCL Command n Control Appointment Center.
    Looking up from pages n pages of names and phone numbers to call back, Bea says "hi Rick, I thought that was your voice on the machine"
    An old friend, hadn't seen in a while, now working in the 82nd office.
    "Whole month of April is filled, but had a cancellation in May, want it?" Wednesday 15 May is my day.
    All in all, a fine way to celebrate "Tuesday after Taxes".
    Swung into Bimart sporting goods, asked for my usual.
    The manager said "none fer you, squirrled it ALL away in THE BUNKER"
    Nice to know folks, even if it doesn't get you far.

    Yeah, last year in April I got my CC permit on a whim. I just took a quick online course, filled everything out online, and scheduled an appointment online right then and there!

    Later my girlfriend wanted hers, so she took the Maryland CC course online (FREE!) and used that to get her permit in Clackamas county. Easy as pie!


    Obviously train diligently and know your responsibilities and how to operate a gun safely before getting your CC, don't just rely on an online class, but I must say prior to the gun craze Clackamas county was all about getting concealed carry permits out to the public! At the same time my friend went to get his Multnomah county permit, and it took him MONTHS!

    Today's the day, My CHL is in hand!
    Finger printed, photoed.
    I had to go back home to get my course completion certificate.
    Good experience.
    Wife took me out to lunch, very interested in the process.
    Maybe she wants her own CHL?
    Hope springs anew that she would show interest in shooting.

    Congrats! I was worried when I got mine that people would notice, but either no one does or they don't care. No one has said anything and I carry a not so small handgun with just a t-shirt and shorts. Sometimes it's very noticeable, maybe it's just to me.

    Hope your wife decides to get her's as well.

    You will quickly learn that 99.99% of people do not observe a person that thoroughly, even firearms owners towards other firearms owners.
