    So I have a Honda Civic 01 and would like to know how I can carry concealed while in the vehicle with a CHL? The glove box has no lock/key and there are no other storage compartments inside the vehicle.

    A NanoVault200 slips under the driver seat.
    Comes with a cable to loop around a seat leg.

    With an Oregon CHL carry a pistol however you want, as long as it is safe from a negligent discharge. However, long guns must always be transported unloaded in a vehicle in Washington State.

    Where is the law that states this? Please cite the ORS.

    Actually, ORS 166.173 specifically allows for long guns to be carried loaded in a vehicle or on your person while in Communist jurisdictions such as MulTCo.

    Yup... as someone who ALWAYS traveled with a loaded "long gun" (SBR, even) in the truck, and pretty thoroughly versed in the ORS, especially as it pertains to firearms... I'd be very interested to know if there's some hidden law out there....

    I maybe wrong { just ask my wife}, but isn't a non CHL passenger in violation if a CHL leaves a handgun not secured in a car and CHL is not also in the car.?

    166.250 Unlawful possession of firearms. (1) Except as otherwise provided in this section or ORS 166.260, 166.270, 166.274, 166.291, 166.292 or 166.410 to 166.470 or section 5, chapter 826, Oregon Laws 2009, a person commits the crime of unlawful possession of a firearm if the person knowingly


    Keyword is "knowingly" how a police officer or DA interprets if you "knew" or not is up to you and your attorney.

    see 166.260(1)(h) specifically

    Correct me if Im wrong, the OP stated 'with' a CHL (in Oregon) where technically, even in "communist" Mult Co. you can legally carry any way you want in a car with a CHL.

    sorry about that, got it now...

    The OP should clarify if he means rifle or handgun as CHL implies.

    The OP mentions a glove box (I would assume that doesn't mean rifle) and then some other guy chimed in with misinformation about loaded long guns.

    I have always been told by my elders that the "No loaded long guns" law applied to both Washington and Oregon. Since most of my hunter friends are across the river, that is where I got my "misinformation". Since half my travel is in Washington, I keep my long "truck gun" unloaded so as not to run afoul of the law.

    A person should NEVER, EVER accept word of mouth when it comes to knowing the law. There is no substitute for looking it up yourself.

    Here is section of Oregon law that explains this issue: ORS 166.250:

    The only thing I can see to add are these "understandings"..

    The only vehicle that oregon occupants cannot have a chambered round in their firearm (s) is an off highway vehicle (ohv) when hunting. The next cylinder on a revolver must also be empty, and arrows cannot be nocked; must be in quiver. Rounds in the clips, or mags are ok.

    Any person licensed to hunt or fish are equally allowed to carry a loaded and concealed firearm; to and from, and during the expedition(s).

    A consealed hg or rifle can be kept anywhere in a vehicle occupied by a CHL holder. Portland area=crossdraw and every nook and cranny :D, rural areas=strongside.

    It isn't legal for a non CHL person to be alone in a vehicle with knowledge of someone else's F/A in that vehicle.
