Polk County. Fingerprints and application filed Aug 16th. CHL permit arrived Aug 31st! Still waiting on Utah of course.
However, USPS failed again. Apparently permit was mis-delivered or dropped on the ground somewhere nearby. Good Samaritan neighbor (apparently) left on my porch sometime Saturday evening.
It took my Utah permit about 2 months or so .
But I did mine when the Government shut down was happening.
So that could have had something to do with it.

That's still a maybe.

I do not know about ALL Oregon counties, but I know that mine (Wasco) will only issue a permit to a resident of this county. The press release even states it is because of the crush from the north side of the river.

Oregon is a 'may issue' state, so they have that discretion.

Check before you go - wouldn't want you to waste a trip!

Just to clarify, OR is 'shall issue' for residents. May issue is for non-residents although in my experience with Multnomah County they issue to WA residents without any problem.
 
Washington County. Had an appointment for 1:30pm. I arrived at 1:10pm. I was out-the-door, CHL in hand, by 1:33pm.

Absolutely incredible. If only all other government processes were so efficient...

Anyone in Multnomah County done a renewal lately? Mine expires in about 1 year but I'd like to be prepared by maybe getting in for the renewal BEFORE it expires.
