    I scored an 80% but either one question is wrong or I read it wrong. I'd tell you but it would tip your score. Lets see if someone else thinks the same thing I do. Here it is... Take the quiz....http://crime.about.com/library/blgunquiz_or.htm

    I scored 90% but I believe one answer is incorrect. Background checks are not required for private gun sales.

    Also, Police limiting CC, you need your sherriff to sign off on it and they have the option not to, right?

    90% for me. Got the same incorrect answer wrong as everyone else.

    Neat quiz! It would be fun to see a longer and more challenging quiz to test your knowledge further.

    No, they do not. Oregon is a "shall-issue" state, you pass all your background checks you get your license.

    Its kinda yes and no...... at a gun show, yes you need to call in a background check as a private seller; but in other locations, probably not.

    :bananadance: -- just because it cracks me up.

    BTW, the book OREGON GUN LAWS, is really good. :thumbup:

    I got same as many others here, 80%... missed the background check one (which is wrong as others have stated -- I called state police department that does the checks on this and they told me no check required on private to private in state sales between citizens) and the lock one.

    A lot of people are missing the lock question because of the fact that all guns in this area come with locks because we are so close to California. Because of California, and some legal deals, distributors just put locks in all the guns they ship to the west coast.
