    Traveling to Oregon

    A question regarding open carrying my weapon....I live in Montana and always open carry....I know I can travel through Idaho and open carry no problem however after reading some things on here regarding Oregon I am confused..can I open carryor not...I saw some citys ban carrying a loaded firearm but does that mean I can carry my weapon openly and just not put my clip in my weapon unless deemed necessary or am I not allowed to carry it at all...I guess I should have asked first if they recognize out of state carriers. Thanks for any help

    You can OC in Oregon, but in some cities/counties you cannot have it loaded, Portland, Gresham, Hillsboro, Some coastal cities.
    There is a list of these cities and counties in these forums.

    Oregon recognizes nobody's CC permit. Different areas have different wording on "loaded" some mean no mag some not chambered. In Bend there is a no loaded guns in city parks. I pocket my loaded mag and put in an empty mag. Wet side of Oregon probably wouldn't be advisable.

    Hi Dave,

    Take a look at the loaded ban cities thread (http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...rry-Ban-Cities). It covers major cities and the laws regulating carry. Portland for example has banned loaded carry as well as magazines with ammunition in them. Other large cities like Eugene don't have any specific laws on carrying firearms. Unfortunately this means you have to check municipal and county codes for where you will be visiting.

    Hope you have a good visit to Oregon, Missoula is a lovely city and my open carry experiences there were superb.

    I'm not very good at explaining stuff so I can only recommend you look at this pamphlet as a good place to start, and have one with you while your here in case you need to look something up.

    oregon

    ok clearly Oregon just sucks...I spoke with them out there and basically it seems I will have to keep my firearm in my trunk unloaded or my hotel room...Eugene Oregon says oh its fine up north says nope sorry so better to play it safe..Washington state doesn't seem much better so probably leave it in my trunk and only carry it through Idaho and when I return to montana,,,,government regulations in these matters suck and they aren't written for common people to understand them...oh thanks for the pamphlet I did print that out

    No problem for WA, you just can't have it loaded in the car with out a CPL. Out of the car locked, and loaded except for the usual places: bars, court houses, and federal buildings.

    So what's the regulation or case law regarding open carry on a motorcycle? It is NOT INSIDE a vehicle. I ask because I will be doing a long distance ride and it entails going all the way to Bellingham and back to southern Oregon.

    Picking up on this thread: We're driving from CO to eastern OR (Canyon City, John Day area) in a couple weeks. The unofficial guidance I was given by relatives in the area (including a former LEO) is that "things are very different in Eastern OR than along I-5 corridor" and that we should expect no trouble with sidearm OC loaded or otherwise. One went on to say that the most we could expect is "if anyone is going to look at you funny it would be in Bend otherwise it'll be a non-issue".

    Sound about right for far Eastern OR?

    Who is "them?" Cops?

    Dammit; I responded to a two-year old post. So now my question is why didn't any of you regulars find out who he was talking to?
