try http://www.packing.org

or do a search on "CCW" + "orange county". or "CCW" + "justification".

all the best.

I have heard that "frequent shooter" is an acceptable reason. Be prepared to show receipts, letters and any documents from a range or shooting match director stating that you compete or shoot on a regular basis and need to trasport a firearm.

Or you can contribute a lot of money to the Sheriff and he will make you an Assistant sheriff.

"Frequent shooter" indeed works in OC, with appropriate documentation as noted above. Handling valuables or cash frequently for business or hobby is generally good as well.

OC Sheriff WANTS people to apply for CCWs; because of various AG and court opinions, he can't accept "self defense" or "personal protection" as 'good cause' unless there's a verifiable threat (previous assaults, reported threats, etc.)

Do apply! When you do your 'good cvause' interview, they will tell you what you need to verify your statement.

The whole process can take less than a month, though if you've never had your prints run before (for another permit or military, etc.) it may take a while to get those reults back from CaDOJ and FBI.

San Bernardino County is almost a given. As long as your residency checks out, and they will check, you'll pretty much get the CCW.

Has anyone in San Bernardino County applied and go their CCW. If so how hard was it?

If you want to anything in San Francisco you first must be a liberal, and bow down in Front of the Socialist group called the"Board of Supervisors.

tcdrennen,
I have a couple of ?'s of your statements.
Specifically
OC Sheriff WANTS people to apply for CCWs; because of various AG and court opinions, he can't accept "self defense" or "personal protection" as 'good cause' unless there's a verifiable threat (previous assaults, reported threats, etc.)
Any specifics on AG and court opinions stopping OC from going shall issue.
I'm just asking becasue I think it's kinda silly that Carona will let us protect our guns or $ with CCW but not our lives from general (non-specific) threats.
I'd like to get a CCW, but don't yet belong to a club or have enuff scratch to make it to Mike's inner circle.

It's just CYA for Carona. After all this is still Kalifornia. How hard is it to a take a membership with the local shooting range? At least in OC there is an option, and not a particularly hard one. Try living in L.A. County. No choice at all other than cronyism.

Exactly, the "i'd like to but..." line sounds pretty weak when you live in OC.

There were some lawsuits a while back ('70's? '80's?) where plaintiffs claimed they needed permits for self defense which got as far as the CA Appeals courts who denied self defense was sufficient good cause - too 'vague' or something. I do not honestly recall. Jim March may have better sources.

It's CYA for Carona, yes; better half a loaf than none, though.

lol I thought they put the gc statement back in until I went back and check the dates of the posts. Had me worried that they changed back to requiring a gc statement again, other than legal self protection

Wow... I didn't notice the dates of the OP and early replies.

I initially thought, wow, who are these people? Seems like the new CCW forum has attracted the attention of the utterly clueless???

When you look back in hindsight at that ... you really get a perspective of how oppressed/repressed we really were then, and how much free-er we are now.

I sure hope the other counties and territories whose Sheriffs/authorities have not come to their senses (yet!!) will soon join those of us who were lucky enough to live in the areas where the grip of on our freedoms has loosened up.
