    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if anyone knew off the top of their head if I can renew my OR CHL through the mail or does it have to be FTF? I was issued a CHL from Sheriff Palmer (Grant County) a few years ago. The caveat is that I'm a WA resident. Sheriff Palmer used to make trips up to WA every so often. I don't know if he does anymore, but I'm trying to avoid a drive down there.

    Also, do I have to renew in Grant County?

    Thanks

    Renewing in MultoCo would require dealing with MultCo, who I believe is still refusing to deal with out of state permits due to the increased number of applications. I only have experience dealing with MultCo, and they have set hours for renewals.

    I believe that they are not processing new apps for WA residents, but renewals are ok. I'll have to confirm though.

    So drive 20 minutes more to Hillsboro and renew in Washington county. The sheriff there is very gun friendly.

    did that about a month and a half ago. the way it was explained, its go in get a new pic then wait a couple weeks for the new card. just make sure it doesn't expire otherwise it's the whole process all over again.
