I got great news as well . I too received my approval and have set my appt for issuance! Got my money order ready! I took my training class prior to my interview, to knock it out and in hopes of being approved! All I need now is to sign my paperwork.

What is the current situation with sending a app and getting an appointment?

" A friend said he filled out a app last year Oct and has been checking the site once in a while but keeps seeing We’re sorry there are currently no available appointments for new applicants.
We will keep your contact information on file and notify you via e-mail when
additional appointments are published."


Does he need to keep checking the site for open appointments?

Your best bet is to check the appointment site multiple times a day and try to snag a cancellation. I had to do that for about 2 weeks before I was able to schedule an appointment.

As I have completed my process, my suggestion is get on the email list and keep it on your smartphone, the sheriffs office sends appt via email distribution! 100% positive! That's how I got my appt and interview

I have no proof, but I'm firmly convinced that SSD is "slow-rolling" all appointments (especially initial) to keep from issuing new LTC's.

There's absolutely no way they're as busy as they say they are.

Does anyone know of any current litigation vs. SSD regarding the unavailability of CCW appointments? I have been checking off/on for the past year and every time I go there they say they are not accepting new applications. If I cannot open-carry, and cannot concealed carry, then how is it my 2nd amendment rights are not being infringed?

Does anybody know about or has anybody had problems getting an issuance appointment? I ask because my mom just went online to schedule hers and the website is showing nothing available. When I got my LTC last year, the issuance appointment was the smoothest part of the process. I called Amber but just got a voicemail. Any input is appreciated.

Look at the number of residents in the county who might want appointments. The initial appointments are at least 20 minutes, which means 3 per hour on the days on which they have the appointments.

The renewal and modification appointments are on other days of the week. The bureau that handles appointments is small, and staffed with reserve officers (mostly retired ones).

Remember that the primary focus of the department is court security, jail operation, and patrol. These other bureaus will have limited resources. Appointments are opened in groups at intervals. There was a potential for no appointments earlier this year when the bureau might have to locate to another bureau, but that hasn't happened yet.

My advice - keep watching the site for appointments. There should be dates opening at some point.

Thanks for your input Mark. I've been through the process myself. It took me about a year and a half to get my LTC so I know the appointment "game" so to speak. As I recall, when I got mine, initial interviews were conducted on Tuesday and issuance was on Thursday. I know a lot has changed in the last year. The reason I ask is that I've never seen a time where issuance and modification appointments were not available at all. I guess I'm just curious if anybody knows why that would be.

Issuance, modification, and renewal appointments are for people who have already been through the initial process - much faster. There is a lot of activity in the initial process that does not need to be fully repeated as your records and x-ref number are already on file.

As is said, I know the process as I have my LTC and it was issued by the SSD. I've been through the process. It took me a year and a half from the time I scheduled my initial appointment to the time I received my LTC via certified mail. I have been helping my mother through and my question pertained specifically to the lack of AVAILABILITY of issuance appointments. At the time I asked, there were NO issuance, modification or renewal appointments available. My experience is that they have been much more plentiful and, yes, they are very quick and easy. I checked back today (checking daily) and was able to get my mom in. I also called a friend who has been trying to get an initial for about 6 months and he's now scheduled. Modifications are still unavailable. I'm sure that is due to backlog.

Just got this email regarding modifications. What's this about? Can't be "backlog" if they only let you make address changes. This doesn't smell right.

Sometimes things really are as simple as they seem. There are tons of new applicants, and they're shifting priority to them. Mods for address change are obviously higher priority than adding or subtracting a gun; if you move and can't modify your license within the specified interval, it becomes invalid.

I think some of the ultra-worrying about everything they do down there could probably be dialed back a bit.

Just had my initial appointment to turn in the NEW form as 7/13 . I have a weird question. Everything went fine we got a bit off topic. They didn't have me fill out an envelope? Someone else who was there today his interviewer had him fill out an envelope.? Could my interviewer forgot or is that a sign?

Don't read anything into it. They didn’t have my mother fill any out either. Heck, while I was waiting to be escorted back downstairs, the detective (reserve) came out and gave the qualification form to everybody but me. He made kind of a big deal out of it too. I was sure I was denied and a bit embarrassed. Turns out they are human too and it was just an oversight.

Anyone noticed the new DOJ form as of 7/11/13. Section 7 "If the CCW license is desired for self-protection, the protection of others, or for the protection of large sums of money or valuable property, you are required to explain and provide good cause for issuance of the license. For example, has your life or property been threatened or jeopardized? Explain incidents and included dates, times, locations, and names of police agencies to which these incidents were reported."

Does this mean that the good cause letter is no longer valid and we must explain it in full detail???

Sounds like my defense statement "Defense of myself and my family" won't work anymore.

Next time maybe I will add "Defense of myself and my family from people like George Zimmerman, James Holmes and Adam Lanza".

That should cover all sides of the argument.

I seem to recall that same wording on my app from a few months ago, but the "Defense of self and family" statement still worked. I think the form is DOJ standard but the approval of the reason for the request still remains with the local sheriff who may or may not require more info. That's my understanding, but I'm no expert.

If you read the first like 2 pages it says don't do section 7.You have to do it in front of the sheriff.I had my appointment and gave him my statement on the paper.they attach it to the app.I think he put in the box to refer to statement. He really didn't ask for any incident or anything. He was pretty laid back.

Ironically I was waiting for the pomp and circumstance then It hit me this is CONCEALED CARRY dummy lol but it does feel amazing to exercise my 2nd amendment right Legally. Time to Walmart-walk!

My wife called about her appointment (6/27/13) since we haven't heard anything and Amber said that they hold they results for 30 days before sending the results out to the people.

Has anyone heard of this? When I had mine last year I was told the committie met every 2 weeks then it took a day or three to mail them.

Ok so I went to get my permit on wed and another guy was getting his too, the funny thing is he was being a jerk so they told him his would be mailed to him! I sat there quiet as a church mouse and walked out with mine in hand, it pays to have patience!

It's the same. There's a new form that's been available since late 2012, it looks way different than the old app.

Here's a good copy from the Marin County Sheriffs

Does anyone have any info regarding the SSD website not sending emails when appointments for a new permit are available? Ive been on the "mailing list" since last August and have entered my license into the online system only to be told Ill be emailed when appointments are available and haven't received a single one. Should I call instead?

The email thing will NEVER happen. I put mine in in October and never got one. Started checking the website twice a day (on the advice of some Calgunners - thanks again guys!) And got an appointment within a few weeks.

Put the website as a bookmark on your phone. I kept checking mine twice a day. One day there was green lettering instead of red (joy!). My initial appt is set for Oct 13th.

SSD only issues 300-350 slots once every 3-6 months and truthfully if you don't have a smartphone or computer with priority alerts for incoming messages from SSD, you may miss out. What happens is the list of 300-350 people get an email, and the website opens up the available slots. The slots go rapidly usually within 20 mins or less, that's why I said you need to have an email app with special alerts for SSD CCW incoming messages! I am living proof it works I did all that I have told you about and in got my permit Last Wednesday!

In all fairness unless another cal gunner knows different I believe you should check the website frequently as well as subscribe to this thread and get on the mailing list for a trainer such as LFI guns. You stand the maximum chance of being notified of available appointments.

I have two coworkers who has signed up for notification from SSD but only get their appointments because I had let them know that I heard from ccw trainer (LFI guns) that appointments were available. In both cases they didn't get a notification from SSD but were allowed by the appointment system to reserve appointments since they were in the system. confusing yes. fair probably not. does the resourceful bird still get the worm.... yep.

Whenever appointments have been made free they are usually all booked within hours from my experience.
