I really hope HCC gets his poo poo together and gets over his hump. I don't wish him ill even tho I called him an rear end in a top hat. My wizened little black heart likes to speak its mind, tho.

I'm glad he's not dead.

I don't actually know off the top of my head. My gut tells me that if you walked into most OR gunshops with a California DL they'd tell you to gently caress off back where you came from, you grass-smoking long-hair mumble mumble etc hey Clem can you believe this fag here wants to buy a gun with a CALIFORNIA DL har har. Either that or they'd assume it was some kind of sting to test if they actually knew the law, and they'd err on the side of caution. If you're going to be here long enough to buy guns, just go get your Oregon license or ID card I guess.

I am think that your ID has show your current physical address and that it is a federal thing.

The way it was explained to me was that there's an Oregon state law that you can't purchase a gun with an ID from any state that has a waiting period (CA has one, OR doesn't). The rationale is to avoid situations where Californians circumvent the waiting period by hopping across the state line.

OK, that's fine for the OR law, but form 4473 instructions (I've just looked it up) state pretty explicitly that you have to have at least one gov't issued ID that has your address of residence on it. I could still be wrong, and I'm no lawyer, but:

Look at 20a in the explicative section.

So if it weren't for OR's thing about CA DLs, it would work. In any event, I'm going to be picking up an OR ID so my DL doesn't even need to come out of my wallet.

No, I don't think it would. At least not with the utility bill, under my reading. The ATF uses the example of a tax document. It has to be government issued in order to count. Again, I'm not a lawyer so municipal utility bills might do the trick.

PGE is a fortune 500 company, huh? I did not know that. That wouldn't work.

I know you already said you're getting the Oregon ID, it's just an interesting question.

edit: Which school in PDX?

I never said it didnt work, I said it can spray in your eyes and disable you, which the article cited happened in a few out of 71 cases. I don't need to take the chance really, one case is enough to be dead and that isnt very good odds to be honest. On top of that, at the very top of the article "Also found spray residue actually attracts bears". So the article just says Bear Spray is an alternative. Great. So is a high powered shotgun which can also scare and kill a potential bear attack, and its odds of misifirng are probably way less then 5 out of 71.


Thanks AFR Nick.

Hey man, no one came to you and started forcing these opinions on you. You're the one who came and started saying wrong poo poo in the question thread, but only after asking some questions that indicate you don't know poo poo about firearms. There's no reason to get snarky with people who are trying to help you see the error of your ways.

Moving on-- the shotgun is not a magic wand. Once, if you even get a chance to ready your weapon, you have engaged the bear there is a pretty good chance that you will not kill the bear before it has a chance to gently caress your dumb rear end up.

Warning shots. Haha.

I'm tempted to drive up there. They have tables at the big gun shows around here, also.
