How To Choose Shooting Accessories In Oregon
In choosing the right target shooting gloves in Oregon it is an important first step in becoming a competitive shooter. Although shooting gloves are usually used by competitive shooters they are also excellent for anyone shooting on a regular basis or large number of rounds. The proper fitting shooting glove that you choose can directly influence the scores you attain. Some things to consider while choosing your first pair of shooting gloves, the first is to choose between open and closed finder gloves. We prefer the open trigger finger design of shooting glove as it split the difference between the full finger shooting gloves and the all open finger shooting gloves. The trigger finger is the one open finger on these gloves, and the remaining 4 fingers are closed. This allows the shooter to feel the pressure on the trigger, while offering protection to the remaining fingers and thumb.
As part of any shooters list of shooting accessories in Oregon we recommend at a minimum; Shooting glasses, a spotting scope, shooting gloves, a multi-tool, a shooting bag, ear protection, a small first aid kit, target tape, gun cleaning supplies, and hand sanitizer, and a small hand towel.

The Oregon State Constitutional Provision States: “The people shall have the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of themselves and the state, but the military shall be kept in strict subordination to the civil power.”
IN Oregon your gun rights are under direct attack, in February 2013 the Oregon legislature introduced HB 3200 which in essence is the following:
HB 3200 not only bans most modern guns and magazines, it allows warrantless searches of your home, requires background checks and registration for a firearm you already own and as-of-yet undefined storage requirements. We say “a firearm” because even if you comply with the restrictions in this bill you may still only own one.(Of course the bill does not apply to “government employees”.) There has been much chatter about governments confiscating guns, and this law would give the Oregon government that power. Typically, such a law is not retroactive, but this one is applicable to those legally in possession of such “assault” weapons. Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine shall, within 120 days after the effective date of this 2013 Act, without being subject to prosecution: This is tyranny plain and simple. If you believe in the US constitution and the second amendment you need to act, call your legislator, today!
Oregon is a shall-issue concealed-carry state and is notable for having very few restrictions on where a concealed firearm may be carried. Oregon also has statewide preemption for its concealed-carry laws, meaning that, with limited exceptions, counties and cities cannot place limits on concealed carry beyond those provided by state law. There is one possible exception to the "shall issue" statute. The concealed carry (CCW) license is issued by each county's sheriff, and is valid state-wide. The sheriff is given personal discretion if that sheriff "has reasonable grounds to believe that the applicant has been or is reasonably likely to be a danger to self or others." There is no pure definition of what that reason must be. With this the Sheriff can legally deny the issuance of a concealed carry permit.

As for open carry laws in the state of Oregon: The state of Oregon is an open-carry state, yet cities and counties are free to limit public possession of loaded firearms by individuals who do not have a concealed carry permit. The municipalities of Portland, Beaverton, Tigard, Oregon City, Salem, Independence, and Multnomah County have banned loaded firearms in all public places.
Oregon is one of only a very few states that do not have ANY reciprocity agreements with any other states. Many consider Oregon to be somewhat of an anti-gun state and is currently considering several gun banning measures in the state legislature.
Interestingly though there are pro-gun states that will recognize Oregon’s CCW permits within their borders and they are: Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Vermont.
Some Oregon Legislators get it; February 2013 in what some see as a direct response to the HB 3200 authored by the Liberals within the legislature Rep. Tim Freeman (R-Roseburg) filed HB3006. The bill stands among the most ambitious Second Amendment Protection Acts in the U.S. It would essentially nullify all federal gun regulations in the state of Oregon. All federal acts, laws, orders, rules and regulations relating to firearms are invalid and may not be enforced in the State of Oregon. The bill directs the Oregon Legislative Assembly to adopt all measures necessary to block federal enforcement of firearms regulations and makes provisions of the act applicable before, on or after its passage. Nine fellow representatives and six senators joined Freeman in sponsoring HB3006. It will be interesting if either HB 3200 or HB 3206 pass and get vetoed or signed into law.
Two Oregon sheriffs have written Vice President Joe Biden to say their departments won't enforce any new gun laws they consider to be unconstitutional. In one letter, Sheriff Tim Mueller of Linn County said politicians are "attempting to exploit the deaths of innocent victims" by supporting laws that would harm law-abiding Americans. Crook County Sheriff Jim Hensley said later that he also sent the same letter. "We must not allow, nor shall we tolerate, the actions of criminals, no matter how heinous the crimes, to prompt politicians to enact laws that will infringe upon the liberties of responsible citizens who have broken no laws,"
US Precision Defense applauds these Elected Officials for standing up for the rights of the citizens’ of their counties and their belief in the Second Amendment.
Mueller says he took an oath to support the Constitution, and laws preventing citizens from owning certain semi-automatic firearms and ammunition magazines would violate their rights.
