Default Ors 166.291 law

I kept hearing I needed to take a concealed classes to get my license which would have cost me at least $80. I found out by reading the law I am exempt as a veteran to have to take a course because of my military service (In section E). But everyone in my area says my local Sheriff doesn't allow this and MAKES people take the NRA or Sheriffs class.

IS HE BRAKING STATE LAW?!?

Issuance of concealed handgun license

ORS 166.291

(A) Completion of any hunter education or hunter safety course approved by the State Department of Fish and Wildlife or a similar agency of another state if handgun safety was a component of the course;

(B) Completion of any National Rifle Association firearms safety or training course if handgun safety was a component of the course;

(C) Completion of any firearms safety or training course or class available to the general public offered by law enforcement, community college, or private or public institution or organization or firearms training school utilizing instructors certified by the National Rifle Association or a law enforcement agency if handgun safety was a component of the course;

Ask for clarification, don't go with confrontation.

Many people retire from military service after 30 years and never touched a handgun.

Most combat veterans were never issued, or trained on a handgun. All troopers have rifle training. Damn few have handgun training.

If the class is anything like the ones around here, it will include a lot on state laws regarding the use of firearms. That is useful knowledge that can keep you out of trouble. Well worth it.

I handgun class is always a good investment. I am an army vet. But I have been out too long to be exempt in Colorado. I went into the class thinking they had nothing to teach me. I was wrong. It was a great class. I really enjoyed it. I am now a safety officer with the IDPA club for the same company that taught the class. I have met a bunch or really great people through the club. No matter how good you are, you can get something out of a good class.

I appreciate all the advice but no one has answered my question...

If he refuses to except my military service as an acceptable document is he breaking the law?

Hire a lawyer and ask him.
