    The way I understand it, the Oregon Legislature gave the OSP the right to determine which states' permits Oregon would honor, based on which had "significantly similar requirements."

    The thing is, OSP is overstaffed and underfunded, and has absolutely no incentive to perform the research to determine which states' requirements are "significantly similar".

    OTOH, the Oregon Sheriffs Association supports the idea of reciprocity.

    Basically, the Willamette Valley, and a couple offshoots, like Hood River.

    I live in Colorado. We travel to Washington State quite a bit. With my CO permit and my UT non-resident permit I'm good to go thru Utah, Idaho, and Washington.

    It really bugs me to know that I have to travel thru the eastern part of Oregon unarmed........ Most likely open carry is allowed in eastern Oregon, but you never know. Pull into a small municipality which says no open carry and your screwed......

    I would love to spend significant time in Oregon vacationing, etc... but I wont until I can CCW or OC legally.

    If you want to open carry in Oregon, you have to be REALLY careful-the major cities in the Willamette Valley prohibit the carrying of a loaded firearm in your vehicle. This includes magazines and speed loaders. You may carry a weapon in the car, but it must be unloaded and you CANNOT have a loaded magazine or speedloader in the vehicle.

    The Oregon CC folks have their own website, which I visited before driving out there (I was born and raised in Oregon) to see in-laws--one guy on the Oregon CC site talked about open carrying (in those very restrictive cities you cannot open carry without a CC permit). He got gas, and somebody saw his open carry sidearm and made a 911 man-with-a-gun call. He was pulled over, (and I think cuffed) until it was all sorted out.........

    They are SO LIBERAL that they all freak out at the sight of a firearm.

    I go to Oregon for work Monday thru Thursday. I have a WA CPL but not an OR. So if I were to bring my firearm I understand that I'd have to unload, but what about transporting the unloaded gun? I have a small locking pistol box. Would that work? And would the ammo have to be separated or could I lock it in the box with the pistol?

    You can transport the unloaded pistol across state lines if it is not immediately accessible to you -- for example in the trunk.

    If your work takes you to an area of Oregon that doesn't restrict open carry, you could carry your pistol loaded with you in the car if it is in plain sight -- for example on the seat (but not in the lock box or not glove box). If you're headed for Portland and immediately surrounding areas, this won't work.

    Why not just get an Oregon CHL? It isn't a difficult process. Find a class that satisfies the training requirement, and apply to a sheriff that regularly issues non-resident permits, such as Multnomah County or Columbia County. Cabelas in Lacey is hosting an Oregon CHL class on January 24 (scroll to bottom of page).

    I'll check out the class at Cabela's. They're only 45 min away from where I live. Thanks!

    You should be fine anywhere east of the Cascades and south of Salem. There is not a single municipality outside of the Willamette Valley that has anti-OC ordinances. I've OC'd in Eastern Oregon many times (my in-laws and alma mater are there), and never a problem.

    So I'm signed up for the course at Cabela's tomorrow. If anyone else is and wants to say hi, send me a pm

    I just did my Oregon class today, painless 2 hour safety lecture. I will apply for my permit next week. I live right across the river so it's inconvenient for me to disarm when I go to Oregon.

    Some states unilaterally recognize all other states' permits, including Oregon's. Colorado will recognize any other state's resident permit if that state recognizes the Colorado permit. So I think it's an Oregon problem. Luckily for me, I have no need to travel to Oregon anyway.
