Oregon LEOSA (HR 218) Annual Qualification
Are you a retired law enforcement officer in Oregon and need to maintain your annual qualification so you can keep carrying your firearm under LEOSA? The Oregon LEOSA Annual Qualification course is required every year for anyone certified as a retired law enforcement officer in Oregon (the certification itself must be issued by the agency the officer retired from).
Classroom and Range portions of this class are typically done at separate locations (see location information when signing up for the class). The ranges we use are approximately a 30 minute drive from our site in Junction City. Directions available upon request. The class begins at the range (See below for more information).

On July 22, 2004, President George W. Bush signed into legislation a new federal law, which exempts law enforcement officers from state law prohibiting carrying concealed firearms. The law allows “qualified” law enforcement officers, current or retired, to carry a concealed firearm in any state without a concealed handgun permit.
HR 218 DOES NOT specifically supersede state laws regulating possession of firearms in public buildings such as courthouses and schools; the only application is to carrying concealed handguns. Therefore, a retired officer MAY NOT carry a concealed handgun in a public building, as prohibited in ORS 166.370.
Individuals who are retired law enforcement under Title 18 U.S.C, Chapter 44 section 926c must have in their possession, and provide to the instructor, a retired department ID issued to them by the agency they retired from in addition to a current Oregon Driver’s License. Upon successful completion of the qualification you will be issued a signed annual qualification certificate that is valid for one year.
Firearms must be a professional type firearm, either semi-auto or double action revolver. You must also have a holster and a magazine pouch in addition to 100 rounds of factory ammunition.
