What is the legal way to travel through Oregon with a handgun? I will mainly be on highways so I meaning care about being pulled over by the staters.

I do not have a valid Oregon permit to carry.

TIA

Straight from the horse's mouth:

https://www.oregonlegislature.gov/bills_laws/ors/ors166.html

Scroll down to ORS 166.250

Condensed version here (note, this isn't an actual OR.gov website):

https://oregon.public.law/statutes/ors_166.250

Basically, a handgun can't be readily accessible.  So either in the trunk, or if in the passenger compartment, in some sort of "locked" container, which could include the glove box or center console if it can be "locked".  No mention of the ammo?

If the handgun is in your trunk, does it have to be in a locked container?

Also, is Oregon open carry for an out of state resident?

My read on the ORS section linked above is no, it does not.

Oregon state law does not prohibit open carry, regardless of residency (it simply isn't mentioned).  However be aware that certain municipalities have local ordinances against open carry.
