I am one of the lucky few in CA to have my ccw. I have family in Or and travel to southern or at least yearly etc. I was going to apply for my CHL in joesephine county but thier site says they no longer process non-res.? the other county sites are silent. Any one know of a souther county still doing non-resi?

Call the Sheriff of county some times the net is slow to update and I would rather talk directly to a person then end up getting a bail bondsman. Oregon has some quirky ways.
I live in Josephine County. Our Sheriff is a great guy, and is pro-carry. In fact he has recommended that citizens obtain a CCP. The problem is he has no staff or funding. We only have a few deputies to patrol the road, and not 24/7. We don't have enough funding to keep the jail operating at/or even close to capacity. It's a problem of not enough staff to process applications. Try Jackson County. They are in better shape financially I think.
The other thing is the Sheriff has been flooded with applications. With no jail to speak of and no deputies to respond to calls, Josephine County is becoming a paradise for low-lifes and criminals. People realize that calling 911 is no more effective than calling McDonald's in an emergency. Folks understand that personal safety is their responsibility. Currently 1 in 15 Oregonians have a CCP
