Permit Information


Oregon gun laws operate on a “Shall Issue” policy. Applications for a permit are processed at the county level by the local sheriff’s office. Applicants must be at least 21 or older, complete a firearms training course, and meet other criteria. Non-resident permits are available but only for residents in states that border Oregon. Those states are California, Washington, Idaho, and Nevada. Some counties require non-residents to supply references. Open Carry is legal but local cities and counties can place restrictions on persons who do not have a permit.

Yes you can under current laws firearms can be exchanged between immediate family members. From Oregon gun laws

OFSA exempts specific transfers or sales including transfers or sales:
Between spouses or domestic partners; or
Between immediate relatives including siblings, parents, children, step children, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, first cousins of the transferor.

But you’ll still want to make sure your daughter is legally eligible to own the firearm as well.

Who do I contact about a handgun purchase denial? I’ve never had an arrest, been convicted of anything beyond a traffic ticket for driving under suspended, and even owned a licensed preschool for 3 years. never been in a domestic violence charge. I have been reading up on Oregon licensing and it seems that they have been denying more than for what they legally should.

State courthouses This include the State Capitol building and grounds. Is Open carry allowed there. Also I have been told that if I have my Concealed License I can Open Carry there. Just does not sound right to me.

If you’re looking to acquire a permit to carry a concealed handgun then you can always look to your Sheriff’s Association for assistance here. In Oregon, we have the https://oregonchl.org/ which provides online training that satisfies the Oregon educational requirement for handgun safety training to obtain your concealed handgun license. After completing this course you must make an appointment with your Sheriff, but that’s it!
