    New to the state, I downloaded the CHL application online and was looking to take the online Maryland test which would save me the time/money of taking the CHL course. I found the link on here, which multiple sources said would work for Multnomah County. My question is this, on the application it asks you to give 2 personal references. I truly only know 1 person here in Oregon besides my wife. Do they actually call these people or could I just put one person down and hope for the best? Any input is greatly appreciated.

    I just did an out of state application for Oregon. I didn't even think about it and put two of my close friends who reside in California instead of some of my family who are Oregon residents. I don't think it matters which state your references are from as the gal taking my application didn't even mention it. Today is the 14th days since I was fingerprinted and photographed with my application turned in and none of my friends have mentioned being called by OSP or Josephine county.

    I think there's a lot of counties that don't call. Mine weren't called. I've talked with people from other counties who said their references weren't called either.

    Welcome to the PNW & NWFA :)

    Been a while since I've looked at the application but does the personal reference have to be an Oregonian? I don't know where you came from but my guess is there's a neighbor, a co-worker or family member in there some where that could vouch for you.

    Also keep in mind that OR is shall issue so unless there is a reason to deny you, you will get the permit.

    Looking at the Multnomah application in front of me it says " List 2 local and non-family references"

    I moved to Oregon 9 years ago. WA county. I did not know anyone that I felt comfortable listing that was not family. I listed two out of state friends. I know that at least one was contacted.

    Oregon asked and I believe it was on the utah permit as well but can't remember for sure. I listed our police chief and one of our local judges. Small towns are nice that way. You know everbody.

    Fine! but I choose the restaurant... meh :p lol It's gonna feel really good to be armed in public once you get that license. Just make sure you don't do anything to get it revoked..... I know a guy who got a DUI and they yanked his CHL before he could even feel the shaft lol.

    Just looked at the Josephine and it just says "References" http://jocosheriff.us/images/documents/concealed-handgun-app.pdf

    That seems a little unfair if you're new to the state or an out of state applicant to require two local references.

    I decided to get my out of state first before I get moved up there. I didn't want them making any excuses that I had not been a resident long enough. Spoke with the person taking my permit and she said all I have to do is come in and do a change of address after I get a place up there. Now hopefully it arrives today in the mail :)
