I finally had my CHL appointment today. Took my Oregon/Utah class way back in April but was told by the Sherrifs Department that they would not accept any application until the actual appointment time. OK when is the next appointment? 20 weeks! So I have been patiently waiting for nearly five months. Got my Utah permit over 9 weeks ago and have been carrying in Washington, especially Spokane, but have to disarm at the border everytime. Heck if I go through Portland I have to take all of the rounds out of my magazines! So I finally had my CHL appointment today. Course certificate, 2 picture IDs, birth certificate, application with "two character references" WTH? I thought Oregon was a Shall Issue State? Got finger printed, picture taken and wrote a check. Because of my unique name my 4473 checks come back clean in 30 seconds so I was hoping to get my CHL in hand within 30 days. The young lady tells me that they usually run 45 days, but because they have been so busy expect to wait 90 days. WTH again? I thought that Oregon State required that Sheriff offices process your application in 60 days? They already cheated by not accepting it for 140 days. Are they really unnecessarily calling two references for every applicant? I am not naming the County until I have my permit in hand. Once that is complete who do I complain to?
