Thread: Just passing through
Long time lurker, first time poster looking for some information. I will be taking a road trip from Washington to Las Vegas in April and as such, I will be passing through Oregon. I have begun to familiarize myself with applying for a CHL/CPL/CWP specifically so I can cover all grounds for legal carry, but I'm left with a couple of questions.
First one, I understand I need to take a safety course to get a concealed permit. Can a course typically certified for a Utah permit be considered as meeting the requirements for a concealed permit for Oregon?
Oregon is a "may-issue" state? Any idea how long it takes to get the permit after you've applied? Time is slightly of the essence here as I will be traveling through Oregon around April 20th.
Should I not be able to get a concealed permit, are there any restrictions of loaded open carry in the vehicle like Washington (must be unloaded, state CPL allows loaded carry in a vehicle)? Familiarization of the local codes is obvious, so I'll check the cities ban thread up top as the travel date draws near.
Any other tips for an out of state'er applying for a permit and/or legal open carry? Any applicable law codes, or how to find them would be much appreciated.
Thanks for the links.
Looks like I'll be ok as long as I keep in mind the local jurisdiction I will be passing through. Oregon code 166.250 means I'm exempt from concealed carry laws in the vehicle as long as the "Firearms carried openly in belt holsters are not concealed within the meaning of this section."
