    It hasn't been passed, but it's looking very good. Yesterday the Sherrif's office endorsed an amendment that would recognize CCW permits from other states.

    From Oregon Firearms Federation

    How does that work with reciprocity? The amendment would recognize all other's licenses -- but I know that many states have more of a "Partnership" setup -- would they have to add Oregon to a list of approved states, or would it automatically happen once we recognize theirs?

    It would be nice to be able to travel with my CCW -- right now it's hit-and-miss which states recognize us. (Of course, I'm not going to hold my breath for CA.)

    Living in the Couv, I've have to say this is ... nice.

    I think you'd be fine in Indiana.

    Good job on getting that through Oregon!

    It has not passed yet, it was just introduced.

    I am hopeful though, as someone who lives 30 miles from the border and regularly works in OR, it would be a nice change.

    I know WA is pretty good about issuing out-of-state licenses to Oregonians, how are your reciprocity laws?

    I don't know, I only carry a UT license because it has a far higher reciprocity.

    pulled from http://www.handgunlaw.us/

    Washington honors:
    Louisiana
    Michigan
    Mississippi
    Missouri
    Ohio
    Oklahoma
    North Carolina
    Utah

    So that pretty much sucks, most of the west is not accepted except for UT.

    As for other states accepting the WA license, not many do because of the lax requirements, of the western states ID, MT, UT, and AZ accept it. ​

    "we recognize everyone's" does not equate to "reciprocity."

    Missouri recognizes permits from any other state (including those with "may issue" laws like CA, NY, etc.). However, there are states that do not honor ours (mostly those with "may issue" laws...).

    Even though your state recognizes their permits, that doesn't mean their state automatically recognizes yours.

    Thanks, that's what I was asking about. Would we have to submit a request or something?

    In WA is apparently the job of the Attorney General to make a list of who meets the requirements. It does not say how often.

    Never mind -- it got amended to making it easier for out-of-state applications, and even that doesn't look promising at this point.

    My dream is for all states to be like Vermont and Alaska. That is, NO PERMITS NEEDED TO CARRY. If can legaly own the gun, you can pack it.

    But if that won't happen, then the next best thing is for all states to be like Indiana and Missouri.

    While I teach CHL classes, I feel all citizens have the right to arms. They can only loose that right when the break the law in a bad way.
