Default Total Cost (on average) for CCW?

I plan on taking the plunge soon and was curious what the total cost usually is for a CCW. I need to save for the training afterwards which is the major cost from what I've read.

$50 (avg) dollar CCW Class (4 hour class, Utah Classes are 8 hours and around $90) and $55 bucks from the sheriff for permit ($50 fee + 5 bucks for plastic card)

This is of course free america prices.. thought I would share.

May our CGN Brothers and Sisters give you actual info you can use.

That is much more reasonable then what I thought. I was worried I would be putting a couple hundred out on classes alone.

I know I can go to Manteca PD instead of going through the sheriff here in San Joaquin, so I hope that helps my chances.

Through Stanisalus County, here's what I'm into it so far:

DOJ + Partial County Fee: $113
CCW Training (Stan County requires 16 hours): $200
Ammo for class (150 rounds): $45

Once I get my approval it will be another $80 for a total of $438.

In Sacramento County, it will cost you a little less than $500 to exercise you Constitutionally Protected right to defend yourself and your fellow citizens.

County - $100
Livescan - $122
Training - $100 - $300 (I wouldn't go cheap here)
CCW holster for each gun - $50 - $100
Ammo - $40 per gun
Gas - $???

Ok, maybe a little more than $500.

Ain't being a citizen of a "free" country great?

Also, if you travel any, I would consider getting a non-resident AZ LTC as well. The cost for me was $85.00 and two stamps. I already met their training requirements with a USMC DD-214.

US Army DD-214 should cover that as well right? I want to get AZ, Utah, Nevada, and Florida eventually but am starting with CA.

Thumbs up El Dorado County and AZ Combined

Here's my breakdown, but bear in mind I haven't had a weekend off for most of the year so my CCW class was a private with Cary of www.handgunshootingacademy.com on a Wednesday. I also live far from where most classes occur (1hr+), so I figured some gas in too...

1) EDC Livescan & Application: $123

2) AZ Application (I did my Fingerprint Cards at the same time as my Livescan, saved some$): $60 (sucks now that it's not recognized in NV, my main purpose for getting this...)

3) Class with Cary in the Lincoln/Folsom Area: $250 (full day of PRIVATE classroom and instruction, excellent instructor, will bring my wife and friends to him when they are ready for their CCW's)

4) Ammo: $60 (150 rounds 9mm, purchased at pre-panic pricing)

5) Gas: $50 (Round trip in 4WD SUV up and down HWY 50)

6) Food: $10

7) New Holsters, Mag Pouches, Belts, and Clothing for 2 Carry Guns: $300

My Total: $863, but I did have to double my CCW class cost, plus travelling, and I definitely splurged on my EDC setup

Well I've got the Glock 23, holster, clothing, ammo, mags down.

Mag pouch I'm looking at will be about $35.
I know I have to take a county approved CCW class, and then the city itself has a class too so I'll have to check those fees.

+1 to that

I trained with Wes Lagomarsino and Joe Truesdale out at Sac Valley. Well worth every penny spent on that training.

Plus lost time at work for the 2+ trips to the SO for appointments. The bill adds up.

Add to that the (optional) additional training one should pick up to stay current and sharp, insurance, requals, etc. and pretty soon you are well over a grand+ a year. LTC ain't cheap, especially in CA. But it's better than the alternative.

I have never seen a LTC class have any such requirement. I have always used my own loads for qualification and training. I reserve the $1+/round factory stuff for carry.

I used hand loads for my qualification here in Sacramento County.
That was convenient since I haven't bought factory pistol ammo in more years than I can count.

Solono County:

cost of handgun(s)
cost of holster(s)

cost of ammunition
cost of application
cost of livescan
cost of training
cost of transportation

Being able to protect one's self and family Priceless. To answer ops question: Excluding hardware the cost was a bit over $450.

Easy to spend several times that on two pistols, holsters, practice ammo, additional training. Heck pre Obama scare prices it was expensive, have no idea what a box of .45 goes for now.
