1. All guns are ALWAYS loaded.
2. NEVER point a gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target and you are ready to shoot.
4. ALWAYS be sure of your target and what is behind it.
NOTES: Be very selective who you are at the range with. Never let anyone around you violate these rules when at the range...be courteous but firm when reminding those at the range of safety.

to my understanding there is no legal definition on the books for an "unloaded firearm". however as Oregon is one of the more lenient states when it comes to firearm laws and open carry is legal in most areas of the state and there is no loaded or unloaded requirement for open carry. I hope this answers your question but if not with a little more info i am sure i could help you ...

A firearm that has ammunition loaded into it. IMPROVING ANSWER: If you say "a gun is loaded when there is ammo inside it" you are using common sense. If you are asking the question about gun safety and safe gun handling, that's totally accurate. An "unloaded" gun means one that is fully unloaded-- no ammo in any part of it, even the magazine. But from a legal standpoint, if you are carrying a gun in a way that is only legal if the gun is not loaded, watch out for what your state's legal definition of a "loaded" gun is. Not all state and local laws are written with common sense. Sometimes, in some jurisdictions, the law might use the phrase "loaded firearm" to mean a gun that is NOT actually loaded, but for which there is ammunition within easy reach, if the gun and the ammo are not in cases or boxes. And in some jurisdictions, a gun that has rounds in the magazine but none in the chamber might or might not be "loaded" in the eyes of the law. So really, it depends on what state you're in and what the circumstances are.
Loaded or unloaded?
It depends on the locality. In some U.S. states, it's perfectly legal to carry a loaded handgun where you can access it in a vehicle, but in some it isn't. You can, generally speaking, transport and unloaded and inaccessible firearm in a vehicle. Check your local laws.
