Oregon gun laws operate on a “Shall Issue” policy handgun license applications being processed at the county level by the local sheriff’s office. Oregon differs slightly from other states in that it has very few restrictions on where a concealed handgun can be carried. Additionally Oregon is an open carry state with local cities and counties authorized to place restrictions on persons who open carry but do not have a concealed handgun license. The Oregon State police also keep records of all gun sales from FFL dealers which are supposed to be destroyed after a period of 5 years.
Oregon will not honor any concealed carry licenses from other states.
