What hoops does a Oregon CHL jump though to carry in Washington?

    I'd really like to be able to travel to the lovely state to my north and keep my firearm at my side. I did a search for the rules and what not here on the forums but can't seem to find a easy summary. So -1 for my lack of search skills.

    What would I need to do in order to get a CHL for Washington if I am a Oregon resident?

    Check this site. http://www.usacarry.com/

    Easiest route is to get a Utah CFP. Contact MKTactical.com to get yours. Mike is a swell guy.

    Download the application off the net, go to Washington police precinct, turn in application, pay money, wait for CHL in mail.

    I would suggest getting a Utah non-resident CHL. It is accepted by about 29 other states including Washington.

    Try going to this site:

    http://www.handgunlaw.us/

    It will allow you to click on any state to see the requirements for getting a CHL in that state as well as lot of other information. If you are near the Salem area I would suggest going to see Jim Jacobe:

    http://www.jimjacobe.com

    He has a class that will take care of all the requirements to complete the application, including your photo and your fingerprint card. When you are finnished with the class you are ready to send off the application.

    I think it's a bit unfair how easily an OR resident can get a CPL from WA, compared with vice versa.

    Its easier to get a WA license (and cheaper) then a UT license. I just talked to a county Sheriff yesterday and they do not even require a safety class in WA. Just walk in, get the picture and prints taken and pay your fees.

    As long as you pass the background check, you'll get your license. For Ferry county, it was $55.25 for 5 years.

    Yes, a UT license does have reciprocity with more states, but I just don't imagine I would be even going that far to justify the added expense. As long as I have Oregon, Washington, Idaho & Montana, I'm good. UT also gives you Wyoming, North Dakota, New Mexico and a couple of more states out east, but it won't give you Nevada or California.

    It's some kind of stupid feud between the two states, IMO. However there is a thread here about an Oregon sheriff who has his head set properly and he comes to WA gun shows to help us get OR permits. Kudos to him!

    For Oregon, it's a matter of mental health record checks and "training" that Washington doesn't require. Washington's system is a "purer" permit system, constitutionaly.

    To help those out who want more information on this guy, he is the Sheriff in Grant County in Eastern Oregon. He seems to have a great attitude.

    Utah requires a class, WA doesn't.
