    I took my class at Wholesale Sports (formerly Sportsman's Warehouse) out on SE 82nd, just south of Johnson Creek BLVD. I know that is not real close to Beaverton, but it was only $35, and it was on a Sunday afternoon. I believe the classes are taught every other Sunday.

    Wholesale Sports also has the UTAH Concealed Carry class, but I am not sure when that one is. Just check their website for scheduling.

    The certificate you get will work just fine in Washington County.

    Just my 2 cents.

    There's a couple posting ads in the supporting vendor section here. Wholesale sports hosts classes. I've seen signs for some at Fishermans. A number of gun stores will have some information too. I know some sheriff offices have them, not sure about Washington county but Multnomah county has them.
    OFF has a list as well. Oregon Firearms Federation - CHL Central

    You could take a hunter safety course if it talks about handgun safety. I wouldn't suggest it because there are number of laws and definitions involved with carrying a firearm and using it for self defense.

    I've heard good things about Oregon Firearms Academy class but they're in Brownsville. They have a live fire component.

    Many offer a class that satisfies the training requirement for OR and UT if that interests you. Some will even do fingerprints and photos for UT.

    Hope this helps some.

    If you want to take a free online class that takes about 30 minutes and is accepted for the Oregon permit: MD Firearms Safety Training

    I have this data, It seemed to easy. Sounds logical. I'm thinking a class would be good for me to update me on current laws, procedures etc. I love crunching logistics.
    Thank you,
    Shawn.

    My only issue is they have you transfer personal identifiable information in the clear. :paranoid: There is no reason they shouldn't use encryption.

    This book is a great resource. Oregon Firearms Federation It does a good job of covering relevant court rulings and how the AG interpreted laws for legislators. If you follow the legislature and courts you can go a while before buying a new copy (maybe not as long with the legislature now meeting annually).
