If you apply for a CCW in Oregon, try Douglas county, they're about as pro-gun rights as they get here.

The sad part is here in California, one must go through the same damn process every 2 years and a DENIAL will cost you 1 year in waiting (no reapplications for 365 days from denial).

Easy. Oregon is a bit on the finnicky side. It really depends which county you apply in. The sheriff may be ccw friendly, or not. And Oregon only issues non-res to neighboring states only (kinda weird). For now, get a UT and FL, best bang for the buck.
Yeah, I hate it out here, yeah man crime is totally going to wait! I'm going to try and apply for mine and use a mixture of the avid shooter/valuables in my car. If you don't mind me asking, what good cause did you use?

Also, where is Evans? Is it a private club?

Thanks Ken. I'll check it out! I don't know where that is but I'll find out, when I'm in Oregon I'm in Portland, Mcminville, Amity, and Newberg. lol.

Douglas County is basically Roseburg. Its along I-5, about 100 miles from the Cali border, so its a good 3 hour drive from Portland...

I too bought a new Sig!

Not brand new, but basically 92% new.

It's a Sig P6. Won't find many them in the states. Got in on a good deal on CalGuns, basically $242 total. Can't beat that.

Mega:
I'd rather not discuss my GC publicly but I'm more than happy to help you out on your application and what they look for. email me at niteqwill (at) gmail dot com

Unfortunately, the recent departure of Sheriff Corona may or may not be a good thing. We'll have to see how Sheriff Anderson plays out with CCWs. I'm praying that the Heller case swings our way for the pro-gunners as it may change many laws of the land concerning handgun ownership. (Knowing California, they'll pass a "legal" law the next day to circumvent the SCOTUS ruling )

Evan's is located off Taft and Main in the city of Orange. Nearest to The Pond. They have a nice range. Up to .50 can be used and they have a tactical range for private use and members.

Thanks again Ken, I'll check it out and start gathering information! I might drive up there when school is coming to an end.

Nite, no problem, I understand about the GC atleast you didn't tell me to screw off like some did when I was just trying to gather basic information, lol!

The good thing is that I am in Orange County, although now with Corona out that probably doesn't matter anymore! Taft and Main? Close to me, lets go!! I'll send you an email and maybe we can figure something out.

Some people are very picky about releasing GC statements. I don't blame them but at the same time, I think helping someone further along a CCW permit can only promote the same side we're all on, right?

To be quite honest I do not know much about the gun. I bought it completely based upon the widespread acceptance kimber has in the world of 1911's. I just registered on 1911forum and im currently reading up on the differences between the Custom II and Pre II models.

If you have any knowledge you would like to share then feel free! I would love to learn something about the gun.

Kimbers are great guns. Their customer service is outstanding. I too am close to buying a full customworked Kimber-based 1911 (just deciding if I want to shell the money out).

The extractors were having problems leading to FTE. Kimber replaced any extractors that were giving problems for free, all customer had to do is send it in. These were more apparent in the version 2 models, not many version 1 models (if any at all) had that problem.

Have fun with it.

yes, that has an internal extractor. if it had an exterenal one, you'd see it to the rear of the ejection port.

NiteQwill, or anybody in the know

I am interested in getting a Para-Ordnance 1911. I want to stick with a single stack, because its one of the big advantages over my Glocks. But I'm thinking DA. Also the P-O's have some improved extractor?

Are you familiar with P-O? Any thoughts on DA vs a true SA 1911?

What is it about the 1911 style you are attracted to? My main reasons are the SA, and the ergonomics, but PO does away with both either by double stacking or the DA trigger group.

There are many options for DA guns, and many options for single stack guns. What appealed about the 1911 style?

Well I am kind of a collector. Most of my handguns are 9mm and very modern style polymer pieces.

This will be my first .45 ACP piece and there's no better way than a 1911 style for that. Plus the 1911 is just such a legendary design.

I like the single stack. That will be a plus for carry. What are the advantages of SA? Just really light trigger?

P-O makes some classic style 1911's, but they look good. If I had the kind of money to sling around, I would get a Wilson Combat. But P-O to me is the next best looking make.

SA triggers appeal to me for the first shot accuracy, as well as 1/2 the hammer travel distance for the first shot (faster, less likely to snag, etc)

I am a huge fan of Springfield and Kimber 1911s. Wilson used to be my fav too, but I think that now you get a better bang for your buck elsewhere. Wilson got too big. If Wilson himself was working my gun, I could see getting one, but... Having said that, I only use Wilson mags...
