Question Concealed Handgun License Interview


I live in the Portland Metro area and I just completed the Concealed Handgun License Safety class, got the cert and now I am going to turn in the application.

After I turn in the application there should be a interview.

My question is, What should I ware, formal, business? Also, what should I expect in the interview as far as questions go??

I assume there will be a question like "Why do you need a concealed license"
if so, is there a wrong answer?

any help or information would be greatly appreciated.

Also any tips... thanks

There is no Why do you need question. Wear what ever you wear normally (don't look like your trying to make Customers of Walmarts top 10 weirdest dressed list)

As to an interview all I remember is the finger prints then sitting at a desk while the clerk made sure I had all the paperwork and checks needed and that was pretty much it. She was busy and didn't seam to want to chat.

I have an out of state permit, and there was not even an interview for me.

Although, each county can be different, and if one was going to have some extra wierd requirements, it would be Multnomah.

I recently received my out of state OR CHL. There was no interview, per se. Had to get printed, photographed, and pay the fee. I had to send in a "compelling need" letter with my initial application and paperwork to the county sheriff.
