    Gun laws in Oregon

    Does anyone know where to get information on specific gun laws in our state. I checked out the Oregon Government site, but I'm not a lawyer and most of that stuff is gobbledy gook to me. I just had a few questions like:
    Is it legal to carry a loaded rifle in a vehicle?
    or can you keep a round chambered in your open carry pistol?

    Just so happens I answered my own question. It is legal to carry a loaded rifle in a vehicle. And it is legal to have a round chambered in an open carry pistol. Through my searching, I found a website that answers many questions I have.

    I strongly recommend visiting this site, I have it bookmarked now.

    Thank you OFADAN. I'll look into that.
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]In order to rally people, governments need enemies. They want us to be afraid, to hate, so we will rally behind them. And if they don't have a real enemy, they'll invent one in order to mobilize us.

    Good link, Cooter. Took about an hour to read it, but lots of good information.

    Yes, really strange how the "law" doesn't know what the "law" is.

    I have the book and it is really good. Kevin a friend of mine and the Pres. of the OFF wrote the book. Oregon Gun laws are not that hard to understand when you have the book.
    But go right to the source to get it. http://www.oregonfirearms.org/store/uorlbk.html
