Who is eligible to apply for an Oregon Concealed Handgun License (CHL)?

An individual must be at least 21 years old with no felony, domestic violence or alchohol related criminal convictions and be able to legally own a firearm to attend this class.  Part of the application process in Oregon is that you are required to take a handgun safety class and pass the background check performed by the Sheriff in the Oregon county in which the individual resides.  Oregon law allows the issuance of a CHL to residents of adjoining states (WA, ID, NV and CA).  If you desire to carry a concealed handgun in Oregon you must have this license.  Oregon is one of the few states that does not recognize any orther state's license.
