    Douglas county is pretty easy to get a concealed. Just find somewhere to take a concealed course and pay I believe its still $60.

    I'm from Oregon. Been here my whole life. Oregon has some of the best gun laws in the country. You can open carry outside of the cities, though you rarely see people doing it. (So it might result in police harassment) There's no waiting period or restrictions on purchases beyond federally required stuff. It's effectively a shall-issue state, and most sheriffs issue without much trouble. I'm not sure what Douglas county is like. I'm in Multnomah County and right now the waiting lists are really long here. Many months just to get an appointment with them, and then a long wait afterward.

    I personally find Oregon to be very nice, and full of good natured people. There's quite an anti-California sentiment in many places, but I've never heard anyone give people from other states trouble.

    Portland is pretty leftist culturally. Lots of great, friendly people, but if you pass through Portland often you'll run into anti-war protests, gay pride parades, and so on. If that sort of thing bothers you, better to stay out of Portland.

    Weather is also an issue. The summers are wonderful, and winters are rainy and long. Not so much snow most of the time, but just dark clouds and rain for weeks and months on end. A LOT of people get depressed by that, when they move here. Read up on Seasonal Affective Disorder. Women seem to be more affected by it than guys, from what I've seen.

    Not a very good job market here right now. Any specific issues you're interested in? Feel free to PM me if you want...

    Born and raised in Roseburg. What do you want to know?
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.
