    Hi all,
    I'll be moving from San Jose, California to Beaverton, OR at the end of the month. It will be a big change for me (using standard capacity magazines i.e., >10 rounds and no more bullet buttons). I plan to get a CHL and I have a question regarding that. I've already taken handgun courses : 1 day basic, 2 day intermediate and 1 day of moving targets, which is ~30hrs of training all together. With the exception of the actual CHL course do I have to enroll in any other courses?

    I'm not aware of any extra requirements for the Washington County CHL classes.
    Just show up and keep your eyes open.

    Do you have the certificate of completion from any of those classes? If so you shouldnt need to take the CHL Class for Oregon. Now to get Utah thats a different story.
