We're considering moving, and CCW will be an important consideration. Is Riverside County more CCW friendly than San Bernardino?

San Bernardino is more friendlier, IIRC.

When you do move, make sure it's in an area/city/town that is under the jurisdiction of the San Bernardino County Sherrif Department.

Many of the city PDs in San Bernardino County do not issue CCW permits.

Currently, the wait time for a CCW interview with the San Bernardino County Sheriff is around 1 year.

Minimal delay, you can still apply to the sheriff once denied by your city.

Currently, the wait time for a CCW interview with the San Bernardino County Sheriff is around 1 year.

They have recently bolstered their staffing, they are getting them out much quicker. Interview times have been bumped substantially, within a couple of weeks instead of many months. Turn around after the interview and the class is in the weeks rather than months category as well.

To the OP:

The Sheriff has a requirement that you live in the county for 1 year prior to application, until recently that meant that you pick up the application and cal for an interview when you move in and by the time your interview was scheduled you would have been there a year, but they went and got all efficient on us.

They physically verify that you live in the county. If they catch you gaming the system by "living" in your buddy's spare bedroom while maintaining your residence outside of the county, you'll find they stop being the congenial folks they were at your interview. Lying on the application is a felony.

San Bernardino is very CCW friendly.
