    Default California CCW?

    Does anyone have a CA carry permit?

    Are they common?

    This is the resource I've been pointed to when I had questions about CCW. I don't have one, don't think I want to try.

    But good luck to you!

    CCWs in CA are granted by county.

    Generally speaking, for a private citizen (which I assume you are) if you reside in a California county with a population larger than 10,000 it is near impossible to get a CCW. All CCWs are granted by the county sheriff, and chances are if you don't know the sheriff, you aren't getting your CCW.

    Great place to get facts and also for a GREATER disappointment. What ever reason that compels you to seek one now should be the reason you state in your application. You never know.. Best of luck.

    Thanks for the info. The site was helpful.

    Different counties have different requirements - but the CCW permit is good statewide.

    Mendocino County is described by board members as a "shall issue" county.

    Some anti-CCW counties require proof of $1 million of personal liability insurance and a psychological evaluation.

    Thanks for the help!

    Default CCW Permits

    As you have already found out, the county of residence is going to be the biggest determinant of whether or not you can get a permit. Rural counties tend to be a bit easier than urban counties. My wife and I will be renewing a CCW shortly after returning to Central Calif. from the Bay Area. It was next to impossible to get one in the Bay Area but much more reasonable here in the Central Valley.

    You can also have one issued by the Chief of Police in the city of your residence.

    It is definitely worth having a CCW if you intend to carry a loaded and concealed firearm from time to time.

    I have one; you've been referred to calccw.com; I recommend that you apply. Depending on where you live, except for LA county, you have a chance to get one.

    I've got one, and have residency in another state as well. I have a Utah permit, and I'm disappointed how the California permit works. For example, in Utah or any state that honors Utah's permit (about 30) I can carry any handgun I own, or any handgun period such as a friend's gun. In California I can only have 4 handguns on my permit, and each time I add one I have to test with it.
    Arm yourself because no-one else here will save you.

    Forget about LA, Orange and SD counties! We have a bill going through committee to make CA a shall issue state (but I won't hold my breath for that)
