I am thinking of OCing on my way home from work at night but where I work is next door to a school. So I would be within the 1000ft. I need to wait til I get 1000ft away to take it out of the locked case and holster it right?


Asking because I am curious if your prohibited by law if you have no choice but to pass the GFSZ.

If you're in Stanislaus County, why not get your CCW and carry a loaded gun through the school zone?

Yea I figured. Thanks.

Need to recover from Xmas and get my CCW class out of the way and get my permit.

Edit: I plan to wildhawker. I just bought me a good holster. Waiting for it to arrive from Boatman and then gonna get signed up for the class the guy from Madison Society (which I am a member of turlock chapter) and get my application going.

You don't need to take the class to apply.

But you do to get the permit right? I would have to get the training out of the way within a certain amount of time from filing right?

You'd need to complete it prior to issuance.

Is there a certain time period between filing and issuance that if expires you have to refile?

There's no statutory deadline, though the informal rule is 90 days from when you submit your app.

Just an opinion but since you plan on getting a permit, I would avoid UOC before you get it.

There is only one good reason for it as far as I'm concerned: if you feel your life is in danger.

Even then LUCC can be a better option because it can give you the element of surprise.

Just don't do anything to jeopardize your CCW license.

I would only be UOCing in my car from work to my door at home.

+1 for getting your CCW. I am waiting to turn in my app here in Sac County. I don't know what it is like down in Stan County, but it takes quite some time just to drop off your app up here. (Thanks to CGF for making that possible!) I would hate for you to start UOCing 950' from the school and lose the ability to CCW.

My 2 cents... Good luck either way.
