Can't hurt, but likely won't make much difference to the local Sheriff if he/she is adament against guns.

Not impossible, but very unlikely.

But, depending how influential your potential employer may be, it might work.

Go ahead and drop by the Sheriff's office in Martinez and ask for an app. 651 Pine Street, 7th Floor, tell the person at the left reception desk what you want.

Yes, I have to agree with everyone here :( I live near to there and I have some friends with a similar situation. the best of best you might hope for is permission to carry if it is during your line of duty, but not in your personal life. :mad:

There is one way ppl have told me that you might have a chance with sheriff livingston's ccw policy if you decide to be a private investigator. I am not 100% sure if this is still true, because I havent asked for almost 2 years. I remember it was worse when i just graduated HS and sheriff Rupf was there because he was like totally ANTI ccw....but then when he left, i had a friend who was getting his as a PI :) good luck!!!

My neighbor is a former special forces dude, he's done body guard work for some high profile Silicon Valley billionaires. He said all the bodyguards are former LEOs, mostly Fed. He said they don't like working with high speed low drag guys, they're a little unhinged.
