• We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.
  • The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Just stumbled upon this site today, and decided to join after reading for a while.
I live in Josephine county, and applied for a ccw permit back in early December. I have yet to receive it, so I began open carrying on the weekends a few weeks ago. Somewhat surprisingly, all of the comments that I have received from strangers have been very positive. I am 53 years old, and clean cut, so I suppose that helps alleviate some of the fears that some people might have of someone younger, and "shaggier" looking. I will continue to open carry part of the time even after I get my ccw, depending on the weather, and other circumstances. Glad that I found this site, as it is very informative. :)
