    Thanks to whoever it was that recommended Columbia County for non-resident CHL applications. My CHL arrived today, 25 calendar days after I applied.

    Among other advantages, Columbia County is actually closer to most Puget-Sound area residents than Washington County is (my previous county of choice, and still a good option.) Just get off I-5 at Longview, go across the river, and down US 20 on the OR side of the river for a little ways.

    The application process took a bit longer than they expected (though no big deal) because several other CHL applicants arrived at about the same time, including 2 others from WA.

    SO it is possible for me, whom lives in Tacoma WA to apply for a non-resident CHLpermit to carry in Oregon? What is the cost and and process? I do not travel there much but it will be good to have in case I want to take a trip there sometime.

    Yes; here's a longer thread about it:

    Also, the Washington County sheriff has all the info on their website. Please note that, if you're planning to apply anywhere else, that each county appears to have their own version of the forms, so this will work to give you an idea of the information you need to provide, but you'll have to do it on their forms, not Washington County's.

    Currently the cost is $65; the license is good for 4 years.

    As a non-resident you will need to provide a letter explaining why you need a permit.

    Granted I don't have a license form OR yet, but when I called the WCSO they said if I simply put self defense that is an acceptable answer. Pretty much straight to the point.
