Am i missing something here? Does it let you CCW here in CA? (doubt it, but just asking)

no, it does not allow you to CCW in CA. But it does allow you to CCW in something like 30+ states, and is easy to get. So, if you travel out-of-state often, it may be worth it.

Ahhh... i see..

hese are the states in the USA that Utah CCW and Florida CCW will allow you to carry (See Note 1):

* Alabama
* Alaska
* Arizona
* Arkansas
* Colorado
* Delaware
* Florida
* Georgia



* Idaho
* Indiana
* Kentucky
* Louisiana
* Michigan
* Minnesota
* Mississippi
* Missouri



* Montana
* Nevada
* New Hampshire
* New Mexico
* North Carolina
* North Dakota
* Ohio
* Oklahoma
* Pennsylvania



* South Dakota
* Tennessee
* Texas
* Utah
* Vermont
* Virginia
* Washington
* West Virginia
* Wyoming


So a CA resident can take the Utah CCW course and get a permit to carry in those 30 states? Seems wierd to have a CA License and then a Utah CCW card ya know.

Yup, basically. One thing I know is that Florida will not allow you to CCW if you have a non-resident permit from another state. YOu'd need to have a FL non-resident permit to carry in FL as a CA resident.

So, by having both UT and FL non-resident permits, I think you have most of the CCW-friendly state covered.

Yes, if you like in a city or county in which the CLEO is liberal in CCW issuance. LASO is not CCW-friendly, don't know about Santa Clarita. I'd suggest you check out the California CCW forums for more info.

depends... some counties hand them out like holloween candy, and some counties issue NONE. It's all about the politics of the sheriff or mayor of the county or city you apply for it in.

I have a question. If I get a CCW in county X, in California, can I carry in county Y in California? Or is the CCW county specific.

If you get a CA CCW, it is good state-wide unless the issuing authority were to place time/place restrictions on it, such that you claim to do evening bank drops and he limits it so that you can CCW during just that activity. I've heard of that happening, but I think it is pretty rare.
