***Sorry just noticed this is probably in the wrong section. So i have my CHL class scheduled for the 10th this month but i thought i would ask here ahead of time just because i am curious. (Still gonna ask the instructor of course) Since both Oregon and Washington both permit open carry and i will have my CHL for both states after my upcoming class (and paying the sheriffs fee of course). Is it an issue for my firearm to be exposed at any time (its a full sized 1911 outside the waistband) by accident while i carry? I have read some online horror stories that you can possibly lose your CHL if someone informs the police you have a gun and they have you show them your permit. Is that the case or so long as your in a permitted place to carry you simply show your CHL to the officer and go on your way? EDIT: Took my class and it went very well! I asked my instructor about this and he told me that legally i would be in the green (Oregon) however (He is not an advocate of Open Carry it should be noted) there is always the risk that somebody might notice and notify the police which could needlessly escalate the situation. Being in Portland, i REALLY do not want that attention with the latest events.
