    Too bad Washington doesn't reciprocate with Oregon. Doesn't make sense at all, but that is the way it is I guess. UT permit class here I come.

    Too bad OR doesn't reciprocate with WA. So I have to get licenses in both states.

    The OR<>WA problem is OR will not recognize WA's permit. Get OR to recognize other states CPL's and it would be there. Or, if WA would just drop the "must recognize ours"...the reason we need the National Reciprocity Act, that basically tells the states to "get allong"
