Default CCW in Rancho Cucamonga...

Hi guys,
I’m a noob all round. I live in Rancho Cucamonga…I’ve lived there about a year.
I’d like to go for my CCW – I have no better reason than to protect myself and my wife while we’re out and about.
I’d like to verify:-
1. Is there is a length of residency that’s needed before applying?
2. Do I have a sufficient reason?
3. Assuming I’m OK so far, do I still go directly to the Sherriff’s office in S.B.? (Do I need an appointment?)
4. Should I subsequently move within the state (Say to Ventura County) would I still keep my permit. I assume the permits are renewed every so often?

Thanks for your replies – I’ve already learned a lot just from nosing around!

If I am correct Rancho Cucomonga is in San Bernardino County.

Also, welcome to the forum!

Lot's of hoops to jump through with Sheriff but they are pro-ccw for personal protection. Contact their dept. for info. As far as ccw permit it is valid state wide, however, if you move to a new county you must reapply for ccw in that county. Ventura County is difficult for ccw.

You ust have really good cause and personal protection will not cut it there. Good luck!

Rancho Cucamonga is a contract city with the SBCSD therefore you must go to the 3rd street Sheriff's office, Employee Resource Department and get your application from either Joyce or Sarah (receptionists). The packet contains a complete explanation of the requirements. Key point, you must be a resident for one year prior to applying. The Sheriff conducts a neighborhood check to verify that you indeed live in San Bernardino County.

Your good cause is just that - your good cause. Personal protection is valid in SBC. What they don't accept is "I just want to have one" as a good cause.

If you move, you permit is valid for 90 days. You would need to apply in your new county of residence.

Regular permits to civilians are for 2 years and requires going through the hoops again.

Pm me if you want more particular information.

Thank you!
Do I need an appointment to pick up the package, or can I just drop by?

I just did my renewal, the process is MUCH more streamlined for renewals. I filled out a 1 1/2 page form which is basically address/phone number info, any weapons changes and your good cause statement. Take a new picture, thumb print the new CCW and schedule another 4 hour class for renewal (non-shooting class).

From what I understand, background investigation is a quick pull to verify you haven't become a criminal since your last investigation.
