    O.k. stupid question but here goes...
    How can you carry (concealed) legally in Oregon and Washington?
    Does it depend on which state you live in?
    I am a Washington resident and have a concealed carry permit, can I get one for oregon? (I have been through the firearms course in Or., but that was 12 or so years ago.)
    Is this where the Utah thing comes in handy?

    You may only carry concealed in Oregon with a CHL issued by a sheriff in the state and, as Oregon does not recognize the CHL from any other state, a Utah CHL would be of no use. If you still have documentation of prior Oregon training, that might work depending on which sheriff you applied to but because of the time elapsed I wouldn't count on it. Besides that, statute and case law may have changed since your last class. So, unless you have some other qualification that meets the state's training requirement you might as well just repeat a class with somebody if only for a legal issues update. Though they fall far short in terms of legal aspects specific to Oregon, taking one of the on-line classes may satisfy the training requirement but I'd call the agency you intend to apply to beforehand to find out.

    As it was stated OR only allows OR carry licenses. As a WA resident you can apply for an OR license. Here is some info on OR firearms law, http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/oregon.pdf

    You can legally open carry in most of OR too if that works for you. That is what me and the GF had to do last year when we took a trip there. No problems at all.

    Call fisherman's they have classes there. Then when you have all the paper work together ( letter from WA saying you are not crazy and birth certificate ) go to Washington County because that the county you frequent the most for work and play ;) Multnomah County I’ve heard frowns on CC'ing :paranoid:

    license in Multnomah Co. earlier this year they no longer required the letter from WA health dept.

    Multnomah Co has a separate setup for processing CPL licenses. Nothing to it now. Don't know where you got your misinformation.

    Multnomah County has a great permit unit. Easy as can be.
    I too want a second CHL but I want one for Washington as I am a Oregon License holder.....ANy advice for me?

    Also...I took my class at Multnomah COunty Sheriff's office. I was a Reserve deputy that gave the class and I think it took a total 3 or 4 hours....You walk out with the document and the next day you go in and fill out their form and get your picture taken and Thumbprint. About a week later it came in the mail.
    Being raised in Kali-Fornia...I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of it all.

    Utah non-resident CHL. Recognized in WA and many other states. There are many places in Oregon to take the Utah class.

    Man,last summer I traveled through Oregon and on the way home I stopped at 4 different Sheriff's offices,from border to border.
    Everyone told me the sheriff didn't issue out of state residences carry permits.
    I took the Utah class and the guy gave us the certificate for Oregon,saying we could find a SO that would issue one.The cert was an extra for that class we were told.

    They all just asked if I owned property in Oregon,then said nope!

    I would really like to know of an office that will indeed issue them.
    Kinda sucks having to stop in the middle of the 5 over the Columbia and unload the guns
    Messes traffic up too:D

    for one. I've had OR permits for almost 20 years now and the new requirements are no where near as stringent as the used to be. Nice change.

    Yes it is. The highest population of liberal goofballs, but quite easy to get a permit. Go figure..:thumbup:

    If you are living in or visiting Washington there is an exemption RCW 9.41.060 for carrying a concealed weapon. Basically if you are engaging in a lawful outdoor activity (camping, fishing, hiking, hunting) you can lawfully carry a concealed weapon loaded on your person, loaded in your vehicle to and from that location.

    As far as Oregon, The Sheriff in grant county will accept a Maryland online training course (MD Firearms Safety Training). If you call his office he visits the Vancouver/Portland area gun shows and issues CHL's.


    RCW 9.41.060: Exceptions to restrictions on carrying firearms.

    (6) Regularly enrolled members of clubs organized for the purpose of target shooting, when those members are at or are going to or from their places of target practice;

    (7) Regularly enrolled members of clubs organized for the purpose of modern and antique firearm collecting, when those members are at or are going to or from their collector's gun shows and exhibits;

    (8) Any person engaging in a lawful outdoor recreational activity such as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, or horseback riding, only if, considering all of the attendant circumstances, including but not limited to whether the person has a valid hunting or fishing license, it is reasonable to conclude that the person is participating in lawful outdoor activities or is traveling to or from a legitimate outdoor recreation area;

    (9) Any person while carrying a pistol unloaded and in a closed opaque case or secure wrapper

    Get your Utah CHL - as an Oregon resident, it's good in WA.

    Check out this guy's training calendar. I took his Utah/Oregon class up here in Vancouver and in one evening was printed/pictured/instructed for both Oregon and Utah. He had a guy there that was deputized by Grant County to sign off for Oregon so I didn't even have to travel. It was very easy.
