Good lord! Did they require you to take out a display ad, instead of just a simple ad in the "notices" section of the classifieds?
Just a small text "ad" in the legal notices section. Basically giving my name, address, and telling people my intent to apply for a CCDW License.

It's really stupid to advertise your intent for a CONCEALED carry permit. Sort of defeats the purpose. But, it's one of the requirements.

I can believe that it's required (no matter how stupid the requirement). It was the price that I was shocked at. $73 for a classified? Wow!

Yeah, it was pretty crazy. Part of the price is the ad, and part is an affidavit for the Prothonotary office.

UPDATE:

I got my letter from the AG's Office today. :uhoh:

I was denied. And it was thanks to something that happened in the past (over 4 years ago). It isn't enough to prohibit me from purchasing or possessing firearms, and it's not enough to prohibit me from openly carrying a gun daily, but it is enough to prohibit me from concealing a gun daily.

WTF??? :banghead:

I even told my interviewer that I OC whenever and wherever I can. So, why deny me the option to conceal? It makes no sense.

I guess I'll write an appeal letter, but I have no idea if it'll make a difference.

I'm going to go sulk in my room now, embarrassed and discouraged... :cry: :cry: :cry:

I'm probably the first person in the State to be denied.:quirky

the only bad things about the state is that the judge has discretion to not approve your permit, its expensive, takes a long time, and no OC in dover. other than those we have fewer laws and prohibited places than any other place I know of.

the only place in oregon you can't carry is court houses that a judge has said you can't. basically all of them do it.

other than that just federal buildings.

At least open carry is legal!
We have neighboring states that are way worse.

Md and NJ should secede from the Union.

Yeah, the process for getting a CCDW aren't the best but better then the two states mentioned above.

And Dave got to use his legally open carried gun to stop an armed robbery against himself just this week. Put one in the chest of the two robbers and they ran home crying to mommy.
