Default Riverside County CCW tips or advice?

Hey guys, been on CalGuns for awhile now, but this would be my first post. I have a question regarding Riverside CCW's. I currently own a home in Anaheim, but my wife and I are considering buying a home in Corona or Riverside. After reading many of the postings on here, I wonder if I actually have a decent shot at obtaining my CCW in Riverside. Since the Sheriffs change in the OC, there is almost no way to get a CCW here, with that dumb female currently in charge. I am a field supervisor with a security company, I have my exposed firearms permit, and I am an NRA certified basic pistol instructor and RSO. Anything else I should throw out there in regards to good cause? Any input or info would be great.

You should be GTG in RivCo. They don't go out of their way to make things difficult.

Welcome OP, you'll have to live in the county for 6 months before applying. Good Luck, shouldnt be a problem.

Welcome. Once you've moved, applying for CCW here should go pretty smoothly for you based on what you mentioned.

As for advice; you can go to the Sheriff's Department website and download the application. Among other things you will see they tell you everything you need as far as documentation (birth vert, Military Discharge paper if applicable, etc.)

If you can follow the directions, the process itself is very straight forward.

I do not believe there is a six month requirement but I may be mistaken all the ask for is two current utility bills and I do not remember anywhere in the app about six months

THIS, I moved from San Bernardino County to RivCo and as soon as I had two utility bills in my name I applied.

EDIT: This was within the last 6 months BTW

A friend of mine went to apply 2 months ago. He had just moved to RIVco, they told him he had to being in the county for atleast 6 months prior to applying... Unless they just changed it.

I don't think there was a change, but I remember (vaguely) asking about that and he didn't seem concerned, and maybe in my instance it was a "close enough" type thing?

I used my mortgage statement on my new house so maybe that was deemed "proof" enough as opposed to a rental or lease thing?

The guys @ Riverside are awesome! whether you get Aguirre or Yezzo, they will help you through the process. When I started my process last year, I wrote my "good cause" letter that had several reasons..Job related as well as travel related..I.E. camping with my family..going to the river and so on..they helped my and told me to rewrite it and concentrate on the business aspect and leave the other stuff out. It's stuff like that that makes these guys so great! Remember, they want you to have it(assuming you are not a dirtbag),thay just have people that they answer to ..so if you do your part, they will help you..I still swing by the office when I'm in the area just to say hi...Good men...

Any tips on writing the "Good cause" letter? Any legal council available to assist with this (for a fee of course)?
