    So I live in the Couve and work over in Portland and I am interested in getting an out of state carry permit for Oregon. I work at the Lloyd Center mall, I think you understand why I am particularly set on getting one. If anybody would be kind enough to enlighten me on the process I'd be grateful. I know safety courses are required to get a permit but that's all I know. So who and where are they offered and what order is everything done in? Oh if anybody knows of a Or/Ut/Fl safety course I am looking one of those specifically. My soon to be wife has family in Florida and I think an out of state permit for there would be a good idea for family visits. thanks in advance for all your help.

    Check out www.usacarry.com They have info for all 50 states. Oregon you need a firearms safety course. I am a Washington Res. I live in the Gorge and got my permit in Wasco County. No problems at all. I hear multonomah county isnt a problem either. Some counties require a "business interest" in Oregon to issue a permit. Your work location is a clear business interest (although they have a no firearms policy at the mall I think). I also have heard a certain county sheriff is offering out of state permits at gun shows. You take a simple course and apply. Im not sure on all the details though. Also, if you want to carry in FLA, get your Washington license. FLA will now honor WA licenses.

    You can also take a safety course at the Clackamas County Public Safety Office.

    Usually you need to apply in the county adjacent to your area of residence on WA, but I had also heard about the Grant County Sheriff being willing to issue permits to WA residents w/o having to live adjacent to his county.

    You will also need to provide a notarized statement that you have never been committed or otherwise deemed crazy.

    I still need to get off my butt and get my permit, as with any other permit it allows carry (both OC& CC)where you couldn't w/o one.

    I have never had to do this, and never heard of it before. Is this for Non Res. only?

    who deems you non crazy? I mean what does it matter if I only have to write it on paper and not really prove it and have it notarized? I guess I might feel bad being crazy and lying about it. I might even cry lol.

    It was for non-res only, thinkit had to do with the it being harder for an out of state LE to request confidential info from the Health Dept. I think it had to be from them maybe, but anyhow that was a couple of years ago and when I look now to reference, I can't find that req from either Clack or Mutl counties.

    Who knows, it might have been one of the Sheriff's ways to weasel out of part of the background check, they might have changed the law (to either allow the research or not req'd, something) OR, maybe I was getting it confused with something else. At the time thought it was a little weird and that it just made it a bit of a hassle for the applicant.

    Apply at the Grant County Sheriff's Office in Eastern Oregon. Sheriff Palmer is very pro 2A and will consider personal protection to be a legitimate demonstrated need.
