I saw the thread about WA, but what about OR? Sometimes I put mine in the center console, is that ok? And at work I leave it in my car, in the center console. I asked the McMinnville PD about a loaded shotgun or AR in a Police style locking gun rack and he a Sargent said with a CHL it was ok. With that, it would not be concealed though, nor a handgun. I hate laws.
