Is there a law that says you can only carry (CCW) with the guns listed on your permit or is that just a policy that's not enforceable by law? Thanks.

It is the law. If you do not carry your listed handguns you are out of luck. Your CCW is only good for the listed weapons. There are a few exceptions, retired law enforcement, and such.

It's a fact. I'm not going to go through and quote it for you, but that's how the law is. Why would they bother listing specific guns on the permit if it didn't matter? Some counties will require you to qualify with each individual gun to get it on the permit in fact.

Come and discuss CCW in a forum that's dedicated to that topic: http://californiaccw.org

It's exactly the same as carrying without a permit. That is generally a misdemeanor. I hear people getting short of breath saying how you'll go to jail for packing without a permit, but I have yet to hear of any real-world cases where an ordinary guy, no priors, no gang affiliation, no other problems, gets caught packing, and gets sentenced to time in jail. If someone knows of a case of this happening please post about it.

It is exactly 100% the same as carrying without a permit. The permit entitles you to carry the guns that are listed, nothing else. It isn't a generic permit to carry a generic weapon. Just like your permit wouldn't let me carry, your permit for your 1911 doesn't let you carry your Glock (if the Glock isn't on the permit).

Your question doesn't make sense. It's like asking, "what's the penalty for carrying a gun while using someone else's permit?" Huh? That permit is only valid for one person, for the guns list on the permit. It has no other application.

Does this make sense? Sort of. The reason is that a sheriff could require you to qualify with each of the list guns. It's reasonable that he wouldn't want you packing a gun you haven't qualified with. I believe LEOs have the same type of restriction.

But does it really make sense? No. People who are going to be stupid with guns are going to do it no matter what the law says.

Your arguement doesn't make sense. You are countering my request for written proof of illegality of carrying a non CCW permit gun by comparing it to a second party carry a gun using the first party's permit.

Your CCW lists you (name, age, height etc) and three guns. And when I got my CCW, I never "qualified" with any of the three guns. When I went to pick up my permit, I presented three guns for the Sheriff to type the serial numbers on the Permit and that was it.

Actually up to a couple of years ago, we were only allowed two guns on the permit. Turns out it was a miscommunication between the DOJ and the Sheriff's dept. The DOJ said two guns and the Sheriff's dept decided to limit it to two on the permit. When it was pointed out that the DOJ's 2 gun rule was a "suggestion" the Sheriff's dept moved it to 3 guns as there were three lines on the permit only.

In some other states, the CCW permit allows to you carry any handgun that is legally registered to the permit holder.

Again, can anyone point me out to the written code that specifies only three guns are allowed or the penalties for a CCW holder caught carrying a non permit listed gun.

I'd be interested to see it.

This is interesting; I just looked through all my CCW paperwork from the SO's and the DOJ; the DOJ info doesn't say anything about being restricted to certain firearms, but the actual 'license' itself requires yu to list make/model/caliber/serial #.
The SO's paperwork DOES state under "Procedural Information for Permits for he Carrying of Concealed Weapons" Section 3: Restrictions, Part 3 (snip) 'Only weapons listed on the license may be carried concealed.' But doesn't reference a CPC section.

I was caught packing (before I got my CCW) back when I lived in LA. It was during the riots (reason I was packing). I had got in a car accident and the LE found the gun on the floor when they took my GF to the hospital (I rode along in the ambulance).

While I was waiting in the emergency waiting room the LE came and told me he ran the numbers to see if it was a stolen gun and since nothing came up, he took out the bullets and turned it into the station. And that I can pick it up anytime as long as I brought proof of ownership..

Good LE, good judgement...but I'm a little bias in this case.

Here is a question for those that know

If one has been issued a permit and one is carrying a handgun that is listed on the permit does one have to carry concealed ?

Meaning can the person issued the permit carry open (not concealed)? as without the permit isn't this against the law ?

Thanks for any insight in advance.

packing.org lists a 'de facto' right to carry in CA. I have no personal experience (nor anecdotal for that matter) but they are under the impression that a 1st offense is a misdemeanor slap on the wrist written into the law to keep politicians and their rich (and packing) friends from going to jail, and also saves them the trouble of having to get a permit (impossible in some areas.) If caught committing a crime and also carrying concealed, though, I doubt that this would help much...you'd still be looking at enhancements for using a firearm in the commission of a crime, so you should make damn sure your life is in danger (as seen by a jury and da, no less) before pulling out that illegally-carried firearm.

packing.org lists a 'de facto' right to carry in CA. I have no personal experience (nor anecdotal for that matter) but they are under the impression that a 1st offense is a misdemeanor slap on the wrist written into the law...

Here is an interesting excerpt from John Machtinger in his book, How to Own a Gun & Stay Out of Jail (California 2001 edition).

If you are caught with a concealed, loaded gun in violation of the concealed gun law and the loaded gun law, you can be charged with two crimes. It's common for defendants with a clean record to be charged with misdemeanor violation of both the concealed gun law and the loaded gun law. A plea bargain is often offered where the defendant pleads guilty to one misdemeanor, and the other is dropped.

Any conviction for a crime in the Firearms chapter of Penal Code (Section 12000-12101), however, can have serious implications for your gun rights. Once you have a conviction for violating the concealed gun law, the loaded gun law, or any other Firearms chapter law, if you carry illegally again and are caught you risk being convicted of a felony. As a felon, you would lose your right to have a gun of any kind. This is in addition to a possible prison term! (pg. 65, 66).

Pertinent PC 12025(b)(7), 12031(a)(2)(G)

Looks like packing.org has it right.

Yes. Without meeting him, I only have his demeanor as it's communicated in his post to go by. I'm reasonably sure that most here would characterize his post as adolescent. Therefore it's a logical assumption. His follow up post only validated my assumption of adolescence, maybe not in age, but in attitude.

and then make a generalization that people under 18 have nothing to add to this forum?

Now that's an unfounded assumption. I didn't mention a specific age, and I don't see how you can infer that I do not value the opinion of minors based on a reference to an ambiguous age limit.

Here is an interesting anecdote. When my permit was issued to me by the city I live in, it only had three lines for gun listings. I asked if I could put a 4th on there and they said no problem. They crammed a 4th at the bottom.

So I don't think the exact number of guns listed on the permit is regulated by law. It's probably up to the discretion of the issuing agency.

That is correct (at least in dealing with the SO's). The permit has four lines but currently the FTO that advises the Sheriff has limited the number of firearms to two (2). The explanation being that you become more proficient with the two as opposed to juggling your skill set with four. Sort of a variation on the old "beware the man that carries only one gun; he probably knows how to use it very well". I agree with this philosophy in principle; but would also like to leave my options open.
Currently I have my trusty G30 and an S&W Airweight .38 on my permit and find that those two cover pretty much all my needs, but I wouldn't mind having my K40 or even the NAA .32 on it for deep backup.
Or maybe I'm just paranoid.

Actually, when they still allowed 4 firearms, I tried to get my NAA on the permit but the SO's have a regulation that when you do your range qual, you have to draw and fire from the holster that you intend to carry the piece in and I never bothered to get a holster for the Lil' .32. I always figured I'd just drop it in a pocket. So no holster = no qualification = empty slot on my permit.

I always figured I'd just drop it in a pocket. So no holster = no qualification = empty slot on my permit.

What qualification are you guys talking about??? When I got my permit, we shot some pistols out at the Sheriff's range. Our instructer was the local Swat instructor. He just made sure we were knew the range rules, gun safety handling and that we could proficiently shoot. He then taught us point shooting.

Very informal, some guys there brought stuff we knew they were not going to use as a CCW. We had a guy there with a S&W 44 (oldtimer) and another guy with a CZ-52. Not exactly ideal hideout pistols.

After that was done, he let us break out our carbines (I happened to have a 50 in my car at the time) and we tested penetration on a old caddy parked on the range. That was fun.

On my permit I have a G20 (10mm for those perps that just won't go down). G27 for everyday use and a Seecamp 32 for my tuxedo/speedo gun:eek:

QuarterBoreGunner
06-21-2006, 10:23 AM
Mmm. The SO's qualification course of fire is pretty weak but it's still required to pass in order to get the Sheriff's signature on the bottom line.
Course of fire is:

5 rounds @ 15 yards in 30 (!!!) seconds. Then reload and repeat. 30 seconds is a heck of a long time...
5 rounds @ 7 yards in 15 seconds, reload and repeat.
5 rounds @ 3 yards in 5 seconds, reload and repeat.
85% of the shots must be withing the 8 ring on a standard B27.

The FTO that was running the range was great, said that his personal opinion was that every law abiding citizen should carry and that he was going to make sure that everyone in the class would pass the firing portion. And everyone did, no surprises. Even the rancher from So SJ that was using his SAA. Yee Ha cowboy!

Our training was something like this (been a long time so I don't remember exactly):

5 rounds @ 7 feet (15 secs)
3 rounds @ 7 feet (3 secs) point shooting/no sights
3 rounds @ 7 feet - mag change...and 2 rounds
12-15 rounds @ 10 feet controlled mag dump

I don't think there was any "test", they just watched to make sure you knew what you were doing. No one failed or anything like that.

My training officers were great, they warned me that even though my CCW was good for the whole state, that the "big city cops" (SF/LA) may try to take my piece if I'm ever caught with it in their town.

My questions have been answered.

1. It's listed in the CA PC that guns being carried must be listed on your permit.

2. Carrying a gun not listed on the permit is comparable to carrying a gun without a permit and you can be charged with a misdemeanor given you have no priors.

Thanks to those who contributed to the topic.

With reguards to big city police taking firearms, I had a co-worker run into this problem. He had a ccw, and was carrying a weapon concealed in LA when he was hit by a car. The police tooks his weapon. After he got out of the hospital the LA PD sent him all across town to get his gun back. Finally a older officer took him aside and told him he would never get it back, they would just run him around LA for ever. Go home, and have your Chief of Police request your weapon. He came home, visited our police and had his gun back within three days.

It is clearly stated in the DOJ CCW application form, Section 3. Quote "List below the weapons you desire to carry if granted a CCW. You may carry concealed only the weapon(s) which you list and describe herein, and only for the purpose indicated. Any misuse will cause an automatic revocation and possible arrest."

Python,

Thanks for pointing that out.

Did you happen to have a CCW application handy, or are you blessed with a photographic memory? Thanks again.

God bless,
David

Am I reading this wrong? But where does it say you are limited to 3 weapons?

Here's the part from the Standard Ca form...


************************************************** ********
Section 3 Descriptions of Weapons:
List below the weapons you desire to carry if granted a CCW. You may carry concealed only
the weapon(s) which you list and describe herein, and only for the purpose indicated. Any
misuse will cause an automatic revocation and possible arrest. (Use additional pages if
necessary.)
Make Model Caliber Serial No.
1.
2.
3.
************************************************** ********


I see at the end that it mentions: Use additional pages if necessary.

When I filled out my application, 3 guns fit perfectly. Then only reason for needing additional pages is to put more guns? Am I reading this wrong?

Three guns seems to be the standard, but we pretty much determined that it's up to the issuing agency to ultimately decide how many guns are allowed on the permit.

I had a permit issued to me by a city PD and it only had thee lines for three guns. However, they crammed a 4th in there at the bottom of the permit upon my request.

Evidently it's not stipulated in the law the number of Guns that can be on the permit.

The form simply included three lines...and some agencies decided this "meant something".

On line one of mine, I typed "see attached list" and attached a typed list of six guns. My agency was able to get 5 on the front of the permit and the last one on the back. The officer said they would add as many as they could get on it. I'm adding a 7th next week. I called up and asked what was required to add a new gun and they said just bring it in, sign a form, and they would type it in.

As to "qualifying", my "approved instructor" (who is also a Utah approved instructor) watched my wife and I fire a couple of magazines, yawned, and said something like "heck, we could do this all day...but you guys know what you are doing, so let's have some fun". We spent the rest of the session doing combat drills. Moving and firing. Speed load and shoot. Stuff like that.

And my agency didn't even care what gun we used. Never even asked.

There really are sane parts of this state.....:)

Cool.

One of the several benefits of having more guns on your permit is that it makes transporting guns to the range easier. You don't have to worry about what guns are in a locked container, which aren't, is the ammo separated, etc.

Thanks for sharing.
