Thread: Any WA residents gotten a Nonresident Oregon concealed weapons permit?

  1. Any WA residents gotten a Nonresident Oregon concealed weapons permit?

    Are there any WA residents who have gone and gotten a Nonresident Oregon concealed weapons permit? If so what county did you apply? I know Oregon individual Sheriff's Depts. can issue nonresident concealed carry permits to surrounding states of Oregon. My question is which counties close to the Washington/ Oregon border issue regularly or have no problems issuing a permit for Oregon to a Washington resident? I ask because it's completely up to the Sheriff and I'd hate to make a trip to OR fill out all the paper work and then have the Sheriff decide to not issue just for the hell of it. I have read Josephine county is very friendly and receptive to nonresident concealed permits but that's one heck of a drive from Snohomish, County in WA. If that's the only one I guess I'll have to suck it up and make a trip but hoping there are other counties just as welling that are closer to me.

    I am an Idaho resident who obtained an Oregon non-resident permit earlier this year.... I went to Grant County.. depending on where you are in Washington, it's a decent drive. I have been told that Umatilla County is pretty good at issuing, but Grant County will issue as long as you meet the criteria, pass the background, etc.

    Since I was looking at a 4 hour drive to Umatilla for a "maybe" or a 7 hour drive to Grant County for a for sure thing, I drove the extra bit

    BTW, all the employees I dealt with in Grant County were very friendly and helpful..the whole process was great and I had the permit in under two weeks.

  4. Well I have a pretty much for sure will issue for Josephine and Grant county then. Both of which are pretty far. Hopefully I'll hear a few others that are closer do as well.

  5. I live in the south eastern washington. I went to Pendleton (Umatilla County)for my Oregon Permit. It was pretty easy. I told them that I transport Cash through their county with my business (which I do) and they had no problem giving me a permit.

    I live in Vancouver(Clark County), WA, and have an Oregon CHL as well as my Washington license.

    Non-residents desiring an Oregon license have to write a letter stating a credible reason as to why they would like one. This would be to the Sheriff of the county where they plan to apply. Also, they must attend an in-Oregon on gun safety and Oregon laws.

    The Multnomah(Portland) County Sheriff's Office web site has a section on the CHL process. That's where I got my CHL. They were quite friendly during the twenty or so minutes I was there for printing and taking a photo. They also hold classes on Tuesday evenings for a fee of $40.00. But any Oregon-recognized class certification is acceptable.

    Oregon is a SHALL ISSUE state but non-resident licenses are at the discretion of the various sheriffs. I believe Marion(Salem) County Sheriff does NOT issue them.

    If anyone has any questions on this matter email me at [email protected] as I don't come to this site very much.

    Oops

    I should have written "...an in-Oregon class..."

    Also, the Multnomah County Sheriff site is Multnomah County Sheriff's Office Portland, Oregon .

    Sheriff Palmer in Grant county will issue a CHL to Washington residents.
    You can take this Maryland online handgun course and it will suffice for the training requirement. MD Firearms Safety Training

    Fill out his forms, pay the fee, provide a copy of the training and in about 2 weeks you will have your license to carry.

    Sheriff Palmer also visits the Vancouver/Portland area to issue licenses. Call his office to check his schedule.

    GRANT COUNTY SHERIFF
    205 S HUMBOLT
    CANYON CITY, OR 97820
    PH1: 541-575-1131

  9. I just did a Utah CCW course today and the instructor mentioned that the Utah Class suffices for Oregon. He gave us a certificate and mentioned that we need to have it and a copy of our Utah curriculum for application.

    I don't know if you need the signed certificate we received, it's probably just course proof that is required.

    Oregon does NOT recognize any carry permit except their own. Follow the advice above and go for the Grant county Sheriff . Oregon does not recognize Utahs permit yet. I`m told there is a reciprocity proposal at this time in the state senate but not yet in committee. Let`s hope it gains support.

  11. I just took the class from Friday Harbor Gun Runners. The class is good for Oregon. Talk to JB and get into a class. He does both Utah and Oregon.
