    If you're an Oregon resident, then contact the sheriff's department in the county of your residence, for more information.

    As an example, the Washington County sheriff's department maintains a web site (click) that describes the forms and process required.

    Basically, Oregon's a shall-issue state. That means, so long as you're of sufficient age and not a member of an exempt group (ie, a felon), then you fill out a form, submit fingerprints and photos, pay your money and then wait. Several weeks later, you get your CHL.

    Suggestions, for a first-time Oregon CHL:
    • Pick up a copy of Ken Starrett's book, Understanding Oregon's Gun Laws.
    • Read the online laws that apply in Oregon: Oregon Revised Statutes ...
      • Chapter 161 -- General Provisions
      • Chapter 162 -- Offenses Against the State and Public Justice
      • Chapter 163 -- Offenses Against Persons
      • Chapter 164 -- Offenses Against Property
      • Chapter 166 -- Offenses Against Public Order; Firearms and Other Weapons; Racketeering

    If new to concealed carry, I'd recommend Mas Ayoob's book, In The Gravest Extreme.

    Best ammo? Whatever works best in your own specific gun, given the slight variations from gun to gun that you won't know about unless you try it and prove it in your gun. My CZ P-01 9mm semi-auto likes DoubleTap JHP 124gr and Federal Hydrashok Tactical JHP 124gr, specifically, though it will handle most others without batting an eye. It's just that these two are very reliable and smoother cycling.

    Welcome from Virginia. For practice ammo try Walmart, they carry Winchester white box and Remington ammo. I get my carry ammo from Ammunition To GO. You can't go wrong with Speer Gold Dots or Remington Golden Sabers. Use the search forum to help you make your decision.
