    Yes, I washington Resident can get an Oregon CPL. They recommend you go through the county you work, travel, or transport valuables in. You will need to attend a concelaed weapons training class, which is not required for a CPL in Washington. I took the class at Fisherman's for $35 and I applied for my CPL in Multnomah County. I hope this helps.

    I work with a Washington resident who tried to get his Oregon CHL recently. He works in Oregon, so he wanted the right to carry concealed in Oregon. He applied, but was denied. A non-resident, I believe, can get an OR CHL if they're from a state that borders OR but you have to provide something like "compelling evidence of a legitimate need" to carry in OR, and in this guy's case, working here wasn't enough.

    I stated that I traveled through Oregon regularly and that I wanted to have the means to defend myself and family if the need were to arise. I will be granted a permit once the background check passes. I was told that working in Oregon, frequent travel through Oregon, and transporting valuables in Oregon, can be valid reasons to acquire a permit. Just wanting an Oregon permit to want an Oregon permit is not a valid reason. If you work in Oregon and have no issues with the law then you will probably be just fine.

    Out of state residents may need a reason depending on the sheriff in the county they are applying in. The "shall grant" provision in Oregon law does not extend to non-residents.

    I am an OR resident and I got my WA state CPL. Just filled out the paperwork, went to the sheriff's office and go fingerprinted, and paid the fee. No class requirement. Had my WA CPL in a few weeks.

    I live in WA and work in downtown Portland. I took Fisherman's class for the $35 and applied in Multnomah County (because that's where my work is).

    I did have to write a formal letter with a 'compelling reason' why I should be granted my CHL, but I explained I have family I visit in Oregon, and work 40+ hours a week in Mult. County. I also stated that I had my WA CWP for almost a year (I'm only 21) and no problems came to me from that.

    I got my permit with no problem, from Mult. County, as a 21 year-old kid. I don't know if many other people get tossed around, but it was a pretty painless process for me.
