Just because you are allowed to conceal does not mean you HAVE to. In fact, if you have a CHL there is no where in the state that you can carry concealed that you cannot carry open. There might be places that it is smarter not to carry open, but with a CHL all open carry is allowed except for a very few prohibited areas, see ORS 166.360/370.Hi to all,
I'm new to this site and I have some questions aboutOC in OR. I have heard that If you have a CHL that you can not OC in OR. Is this as myth? What are some of the other considerations that I need to be aware of before I OC in my state?
Thanks in advance for the help. I'm looking forward to being an active member here.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A CHL there are some places that by municipal ordinance you cannot carry a loaded weapon (or maybe even have a loaded mag/speed clip with you) but even in those places you can still carry the weapon openly. And those provisions do not/can not apply to a person with a CHL.
