    I was wondering who all lives in Southern Oregon and has a CHL. I am looking at getting mine, and i was wondering if anyone knows where i can get a quick study for the test, I am also talking my gf into getting one as well as she has a job that has some hazards to it. But if possible I would like to get to know some more people that have them in this area.

    There is no "test". You have to take a class, but they don't test you. The one I took (Deschutes County) was informative as it covered a lot of Oregon specific law regarding legitimate self-defense with lethal force but I do not believe there is a statewide standard.

    Call you local Sheriff and they will have all the info you need.

    As NoNAU stated, there is no 'test'. You just need to take a qualified course.

    (A) Completion of any hunter education or hunter safety course approved by the State Department of Fish and Wildlife or a similar agency of another state if handgun safety was a component of the course;

    (B) Completion of any National Rifle Association firearms safety or training course if handgun safety was a component of the course;

    (C) Completion of any firearms safety or training course or class available to the general public offered by law enforcement, community college, or private or public institution or organization or firearms training school utilizing instructors certified by the National Rifle Association or a law enforcement agency if handgun safety was a component of the course;

    (D) Completion of any law enforcement firearms safety or training course or class offered for security guards, investigators, reserve law enforcement officers or any other law enforcement officers if handgun safety was a component of the course;

    (E) Presents evidence of equivalent experience with a handgun through participation in organized shooting competition or military service;

    (F) Is licensed or has been licensed to carry a firearm in this state, unless the license has been revoked; or

    (G) Completion of any firearms training or safety course or class conducted by a firearms instructor certified by a law enforcement agency or the National Rifle Association if handgun safety was a component of the course;

    Good Guys Guns over on Barnett give the CHL course. No testing involved. Give them a call and catch their next scheduled class.
