Unless a firearm is partially visible, it is considered concealed.
A concealed handgun license allows you to carry a loaded or unloaded handgun concealed upon your person or concealed within your control in a car or other means of transportation.
ORS 166.295(C)(2) requires that the "licensee shall report the change of address and the sheriff shall issue a new license as a duplication for a change of address. The license shall expire upon the same date as would the original." Failure to do so may result in revocation of your License. The cost is $15.
If you will be transferring your license to another county, register with that county. They will notify us that you are no longer a CHL holder in Marion County. However, if you do not transfer your license to another Oregon county OR if you move out of state, you must notify the Marion County Sheriff's Office.
You should report the loss of your CHL and make an appointment to have a replacement issued. The cost is $15.
Pursuant to ORS 166.295(1)(a), a concealed handgun license is renewable by repeating the procedures set out in ORS 166.291 and 166.292. You are not required to be fingerprinted or to provide character references again. You must schedule an appointment, complete an application and pay a $50 renewal fee. An otherwise expired concealed handgun license continues to be valid for up to 45 days after the licensee applies for renewal if: (1) The licensee applies for renewal before the original license expires; (2) The licensee has proof of the application for renewal; and (3) The application for renewal has not been denied.
Yes. Contact us to schedule an appointment so we can issue a card in your new name. Bring a marriage license or court documentation as proof of your name change. The cost is $15.
This is a serious offense and can result in arrest and seizure and revocation of your License.
No. It is not the policy of the Marion County Sheriff to issue Concealed Handgun Licenses to anyone who is not a resident of Marion County. Other Oregon counties may have different policies, especially those which border other states. Check with them.
Yes. We are mandated by law to fingerprint new applicants for Concealed Handgun Licenses, regardless of whether they have been fingerprinted before.
It generally takes less than 15 minutes to process renewal applications. Assuming there is nothing in a background check to preclude you from renewing your License, it is printed and issued to you usually at the end of the appointment. To further speed up the renewal process, have the renewal fee of $50 ready--either $50 in cash or your check completed at the time of your appointment. Checks to the Marion County Sheriff can be made to "MCSO."
