Let's make this brief and to the point. I was arrested back in 1975 and charged with a misdemeanor(trespassing), did my probation of 6 weekends of community service and the records were sealed. 20 years later I bought a handgun and got my CCL in California with no problems at all. I moved to Oregon 11 years ago and have applied for a CHL and still waiting 10 months later for it. In the last month, I bought a handgun and a rifle online and when they came into my FFL dealer, I was immediately put on a 1 1/2 month delay. So now I have $2500 worth of guns sitting there that I can't touch. My question is why is this happening? I thought California laws were more stringent than Oregon . Oh, just in case you ask, I have not had any incidents with the law at all since 1975 and my name is not a common one.
