    Oregon Open Carry?

    Going from Spokane to visit brother in Oregon. Visited Packing.org, read OR laws, still unclear on open carry. My permit is not recognized in OR so I can not CC, that I know. I will be traveling in an RV, can I open carry in my RV / in brothers home? Thanks in advance.

    Oregon is an open carry state, except certain cities which don't allow it. Portland and Beaverton I know for sure don't, but there may be others. Mostly bigger cities, I believe - rural Oregon is pretty gun friendly. Not sure if a RV changes anything, but inside a normall vehicle is fine so long as the gun is in plain sight, ie sitting on the passenger seat, hung up on a rifle rack, etc, or unloaded and locked away "not readily available", basically in the trunk or toolbox. A locking case doesn't count. In your brother's home would be fine.
    .40 is fine.

    Thanks. Not trying to be a smart alec but...is it open carry but unloaded? Isnt open carry "readily available"? My hope is that I can open carry (on my hip)/ loaded in RV while on the road. Again, thanks.

    Again, I'm not certain what an RV might change, but in a standard vehicle, as long as it's not concealed, it doesn't have to be unloaded. As far as wearing it on your hip, however, while not technically concealed, I've been told by an Oregon LEO that they want to be able to walk up to your window and see the gun in plain sight - otherwise it may be considered to be concealed. Not sure if that's an enforcable law, or just the LEO's preference, but either way, wouldn't want to test it. Also, keep in mind that if you're wearing on your hip while driving through Portland or other non-open carry cities, they won't think too highly of that, either. Are you going somewhere where you can steer clear of the bigger cities?
