    Depends on state - usually loaded open carry is fine without any safety. In Oregon, state law is fine with open carry loaded; however localities have the power to ban loaded open carry if you do not possess a concealed handgun permit (CHP).

    So basically having a CHP is a safe harbor to local load bans in Oregon.

    Please check out our maps at OpenCarry.org to learn more.

    Have you checked ORS 166.291 to see if your 18 year old misdemeanor is truly a disqualifier? It could be that the Sheriff has improperly denied you and you can appeal that denial.

    Say what? Read ORS 166.291 (1)(h) misdemeaners only prohibit for 4 (yes four) years....you should be elegable for your OR CHL.

    Ok, that said, Unlicensed OC, loaded, anywhere in OR at any time, even in your car (ORS 166.250(3))...except where a local government has restricted per ORS 166.173, or per exemptions in ORS 166.260.

    You live in Springfield...Springfield has a parks restriction on unlicensed carry, as does Bend. Portland, Tigard, Beverton, Independence, Oregon City, Salem, Astoria, and I believe Lincoln City? have town ordinences against unlicensed, loaded, OC, so no loaded OC there.

    I would suggest you read ORS 166.173, ORS 166.250 (pay attention to 3), ORS 166.260,ORS 166.291 and 292, and ORS 166.360-380 very carefully. Most of your questions will be answered.
