NEWS FOR 2015-2016

The Oregon 4-H Shooting Sports Program promotes the safe and responsible use of firearms for educational, recreational, and competitive purposes. This includes following all applicable federal and state laws.

Senate Bill 941, the Oregon Firearms Safety Act, was recently signed into law by Governor Kate Brown.  While this law will impact gun transfers generally, it does not affect the temporary provision of firearms from Extension faculty/staff, Extension Volunteers, or 4-H Parents to other Extension faculty/staff, Extension Volunteers, or 4-H Parents as long as it is done in an area designed for target shooting (i.e. a shooting range), for use during target practice, a firearms safety or training course or class or similar lawful activity. 
As a result, Oregon 4-H Shooting Sports program policy is as follows:
  1) All firearms (unless personal property) belong to county 4-H programs and are in the   custody of the county 4-H faculty;

  2) any temporary provision of county 4-H firearms for a period of seven days or less shall use some form of check out that includes the transferee’s name, the date of check out; and the makes, models, and serial numbers of the firearms checked; and

  3) temporary provisions of county 4-H firearms for a period of longer than seven days shall use the Custody/Transfer of Firearms Form (460-200G) and must be returned within six months of checkout.
