In reading about the California Public Records Act here, it would seem that they must immediately provide access to CCW records if I appear at their office in person during normal business hours. I could then manually parse the records for those which have a good cause statement that closely mirrors my own statement. At that point, I could make a note of the person's name on the applications and submit a request for a hard copy. I fully realize that they don't have to provide times and addresses of vulnerability per 6254:

Quote:
(u) (1) Information contained in applications for licenses to
carry firearms issued pursuant to Section 12050 of the Penal Code by
the sheriff of a county or the chief or other head of a municipal
police department that indicates when or where the applicant is
vulnerable to attack or that concerns the applicant's medical or
psychological history or that of members of his or her family.
(2) The home address and telephone number of peace officers,
judges, court commissioners, and magistrates that are set forth in
applications for licenses to carry firearms issued pursuant to
Section 12050 of the Penal Code by the sheriff of a county or the
chief or other head of a municipal police department.

municipal police department.
Where am I off base in the process? I would like to know how many CCW permits are being reported by SLO county to CA DOJ and cross reference that number to what I am given access to by their staff.

If I could get 5 or 6 other CalGun'rs from the area to go with me, I would think that we could parse the records in a very short time. We would come away with a list of names that we want hard copies of good cause statements.
