Becoming a responsible citizen and firearm owner depends on clearly understanding the gun rights and state laws that apply to you. Oregon is one of America’s fastest-growing states in terms of population and is home to 4.2 million people. The state had distributed around 276,000 concealed carry (CC) licenses as of August 2021. This means that 6.51% of the population is allowed to CC.
Understanding reciprocity – how your gun rights translate across state lines – is also essential to Oregon concealed carry. A concealed weapons license from Oregon is honored in 22 states, but Oregon does not recognize permits or licenses from any other state. The minimum age to CC in Oregon is 21, and the license is valid for four years.
