Question out-of-state OR Concealed Handgun License (CHL) update?

I saw an older, dormant similar-themed thread from a couple of years ago, so I thought that I would bring up the topic again.

I saw on a previous posting that Grant County Oregon Sheriff Glenn Palmer has been up to the Puyallup gun show to process OR CHL applications. Has anyone heard of any upcoming plans for the good sheriff to make any repeat appearance(s) in the near future?

Is there any current information on pro-2A Oregon county sheriffs, and out-of-state CHL application processing?

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to another one of those. The last I heard of him coming up was in the Vancouver area.

Oh, and I don't recall which is was for sure, but there's a free online course (Maryland?) that you can do beforehand, to get your requirements done. WA doesn't have anything like that as a requisite...

Oh, I hadn't heard of the free online course. I took a NRA Basic pistol course last year, I think that should suffice.

I wonder if any other Oregon county sheriffs are becoming more pro-2A?

I think this the link for the online coarse MD Firearms Safety Training . You take it online I think it was like 25 - 30 minutes long and when you finish you print and sign the form and mail it to the Police dept.

I'll try and dig up the info. It isn't just any course. It needs to be an official course recognized by OR. They have one (that's paid) but they also accept certain states' versions. MD was the one I recall.

Good find!

Here is some info about course requirements from ORS 166.291(f):

166.291. (1) The sheriff of a county, upon a person’s application for an Oregon concealed handgun license, upon receipt of the appropriate fees and after compliance with the procedures set out in this section, shall issue the person a concealed handgun license if the person:
(a)(A) Is a citizen of the United States; or
(B) Is a legal resident alien who can document continuous residency in the county for at least six months and has declared in writing to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services the intent to acquire citizenship status and can present proof of the written declaration to the sheriff at the time of application for the license;

(n) Has not received a dishonorable discharge from the Armed Forces of the United States; and
(o) Is not required to register as a sex offender in any state.

(Emphasis added.)


Here is the link to the NRA course info:

NRAInstructors.org - Portal for NRA certified Instructors, NRA Education and Training


I am not a lawyer. However, I would have no qualms about presenting my certificate from the NRA Basic Pistol course that I completed. It was taught by NRA-certified instructors at the Tacoma Rifle and Revolver Club (TRRC). It was done over a Saturday and Sunday, at the Tacoma range. I have to tell you it was a reasonablly-priced, great class, with a great group of knowledgeable and personable instructors. I know that I learned a lot about pistol safety and proper pistol etiquette. It is being offered again toward the end of February 2013, class size is limited. (Disclosure: I have no affiliation with TRRC, other than taking the class at their facility last year.)

TRRC link: Tacoma Rifle and Revolver Club, University Place Washington, an NRA affiliate

Still haven't found any info about the possibility of Sheriff Palmer traveling to the Puyallup WAC show in the near future. Perhaps a buddy and I will have to cruise down to Canyon City, Oregon this upcoming spring??

Happy trails.
