    And of course my question is: What do I need to do before I can purchase a rifle here in Oregon? I am legal to buy in California and passed multiple back-round checks, but I have officially moved here and have a job as well.

    I also looked for other threads but couldn't find that specific answer.

    Establish your residence and obtain your Oregon Drivers License with your current address.

    Thats it.

    Enjoy your new gun rights!

    Things are much less strict here. In California, all sales, including sales from one private party to another, have to go through a FFL. That isn't true here. You can buy any firearm, even a handgun but not including NFA (full auto) firearms, face to face from another Oregonian with no paperwork. If you buy from a store you have to fill out a Form 4473 but there is no 10-day waiting period. After you pass the instant background check you can take your new purchase home immediately.

    Almost everything you had to put up with in California you no longer have to put up with, and everything you couldn't have in California you can now get.

    Welcome to Free America!

    Hahahahaha! I already have a better job and make more money and now I get to have gun rights too. I already read through the drivers manual I just have to go down and do it. Thank you!

    We escaped in 1991 after fighting the Cali AWB. Please check all libtard tendencies at the Oregon border

    no problem, I couldn't wait to leave. 34 years of California is enough for me. I've been waiting to buy a real rifle for a long time.

    I moved here Feb of last year from CA. I don't miss - a n y t h i n g - My gun collection and trigger time has increased ten fold. I as well have a better job (right off the bat!) than I could find in CA.

    That's actually not correct. 50+ year old long guns can be sold directly in California, at least until January 2013.

    Yes, I know that. I didn't include that one esoteric, narrow exception to avoid needless complexity in my post, especially since the OP no longer lives in California and that narrow, esoteric exception is now irrelevant to him.

    If I started detailing all of the complexity of California gun laws all of my posts would be 5,000 words long. :winkkiss:

    Moved from CA to WA, doing the same work in a home office on the same paycheck. Gave myself a nice payrise. :)

    Did you find many differences in the driver's manuals between the states? It might be worth for me checking it out. :)

    Welcome to America, Glock Jock. Your first order of business should be to get some standard capacity mags for the Glocks you already own. Next, buy a modern sporting rifle with a menacing bayonet lug and an honest to goodness detachable magazine.

    The drivers manual has a couple differences but nothing you can't figure out.

    And I have started an AK-47 fund for myself I honestly can't wait to get one. Luckily I should be getting plenty of OT so picking one up shouldn't be a problem. Anybody know of some good shops that would sell the Century P.A.P. Yugo AK? Would love to see one!

    I got an Arsenal Saiga SGL21-61 from Gun Zone: Firearms Sales in Portland, Oregon :: AK-47 Rifles :: HandGuns at one of the gun shows. You should check one out before deciding what to get.

    Left Cali in 1989, never regretted it, except the five years in which I returned to be near my daughter.

    I will never live in another commie state again if there is ANY choice.

    I moved out of California to Washington State back in 1998 and couldn't be happier. I was able to get a pistol with a magazine that held more than 10 rounds in WA. I had only had a revolver when I lived in California.

    So you're one of those guys huh? Thanks for mucking up our housing and apartment rates and taking our jobs!

    haha, just kidding you.

    The first thing you need to do is go buy yourself a gosh-danged 30 round stick for your Glock! Wooh Boy!

    didn't even think about hi-cap for my Glock? I think I am going to have to do that, thank you.
