    Wondering if there is a lot of dramas like needing to sit though the oh so educational training sessions land relearn how to handle my weapons (again), if I can bring in what was a valid California CCW yesterday to the sherif pay my fees and re-shoot a nice tight group to recalibrate each if my three carry weapons to Oregon soil.

    Does Oregon accept a valid (sort of) CCW as proof of completion of training etc?

    Thanks.

    Spend a Saturday taking the CCW course, get your certificate, visit the County Sheriff's office, pay your $60 and get fingerprinted, wait two weeks for your car to arrive in the mail.

    You can call the Sheriff's department and ask, but I would guess that anything you did in California is not valid in Oregon, although I know it is much more intensive.

    Call them, as I have been wrong before.

    Thanks. Yes Cali wants to know a lot. But to be fair I got mine in record time, so I'm not whining.

    Oregon only requires a one hour "handgun safety" class. No tests. Ask you Sheriff if your California CCW is sufficient to prove your firearm proficiency.

    You have to reside here 90 days first.

    There shouldn't be any delay for U.S. citizens.

    So now I'm a bit confused. 90 days or six months... the quote is kind of hard to read with the random editing. I'm relocating from NorCal and believe me it's nearly Oregon where I was living, we used to call it Extremely Northern California, and Upper Northern California - to distinguish it from 'middle' Cali that calls themselves 'northern' when they are in the middle of the dang state. Still, I have indeed crossed the line of no return.

    So, clarification: I have to reside for a specific period, take another weapons for idiots class, and show proof of technique at the range with all three carry weapons, as well as pay X amount in cash to the Sherriff and X amount in check to someone else? Have I got this right?

    See I have this thing about having my weapon on me. I don't feel right anymore when its not with me. So, maybe I'll just turn into a mole or something until I qualify residency wise or something.

    You don't need to show any proof of technique, just take a qualifying course and then apply for your permit.

    The Oregon CCW is not carry piece specific like California. You demonstrate proficiency (you hit the target and demonstrate proper safety techniques) during your CCW Class with the weapon you are most comfortable with. Get the certificate and you can carry any Concealed hand gun you wish.

    Zonkers! Won't that be nice. Since well, sometimes Mr. Sauer goes nice with an outfit and certain days it's Mr. Kimber, and other days I just feel like hanging with those Smith & Wesson guys, and still other days I go a little off the beaten track and take a little import with me.

    Girls, they just can't stick with one thing if given choices huh?

    Actually it's most always a little Sig Sauer .380. But then it will take care of business if business needs taking care of.

    Thanks, and like these laws better than Cali much better.

    I'm from about 30 miles south of where I live in Oregon. Now THAT'S Northern CA!

    Seeing as you are in Grants Pass, where there are very few law enforcement, and almost everyone is armed, you might want to hole up for a while.....;)
