I live in Merced County, I want a CCW, who's boots do I need to start licking? It's getting to the point I don't want to get a flat tire in some parts of the county.

No licking of LE boots required, said LE is going to be formally educated on what State Law is and how they can go about complying. Make sure you keep watching this thread, there should be some exciting news very soon

I'm interested in applying for my CCW permit in Merced as well. Has there been any feedback on what is required for a successful good cause statement? I've read that protection of self and family is not generally sufficient. Is that true?

Emphasis added above to answer question below. Also, unicityd, see the link in the first page of this thread for a layout of the application process. Accepted/known Good Cause statements have not been published by CalGuns Foundation(CGF) and I can't speak into whether or not CGF has received the PRAR information from the County, yet. It wasn't all that long ago that Pazin lifted the outright moratorium on even accepting applications for processing.

I am happy to see that the Sheriff only requires $10 to submit the CCW application. However, he still requires personal references and a physician's statement. Baby steps

Just to clarify, Sheriff Pazin still wants his $50 bucks for the initial filing fee if the applicant is approved; it's only $10 bucks if denied. But yeah, baby steps indeed...

From the Sheriff's web site:

CARRY CONCEALED WEAPON FEES
INITIAL FEE:
$10.00 APPLICATION PACKET. (NON-REFUNDABLE)
$40.00 BALANCE DUE IF PERMIT IS APPROVED

I just picked up the app packet today, no charge. Next ccw class at gunrunners is 16th of June. Should I turn in packet or hold off a bit.

Couldn't the physician's statement be attacked as religious discrimination (Christian Scientists)

That's overcomplicating it:

Penal Code Sec. 12054(d): "Except as authorized pursuant to subdivisions (a), (b), and (c), no requirement, charge, assessment, fee, or condition that requires the payment of any additional funds by the applicant may be imposed by any licensing authority as a condition of the application for a license."

You can apply directly to the Sheriff's Office.

A friend of mine got his CCW permit last week from Pazin. He did not have his letters from the doctors in his origional application. They told him to bring them in with him after he qualified at the range, on the same day that he actually picked up his lic. My wife on he other hand had her application sent back and was told to re-apply after she completed the application, ie: had her doctors letters.

Pazin is exercising "discretion" when accepting applications.

I have a question, maybe it's been asked elsewhere but I didn't see it.

I am moving to Merced to go to college there. Can I apply for my ccw there? Or are there restrictions like I have to have lived there for a year first?

thanks

I'm going to make this as ambiguously clear as possible:

If you are a resident of Merced County, over the age of 21, free of criminal history, and have not yet applied - DO IT NOW. THE CLOCK IS TICKING.

Please email me at bcombs at calgunsfoundation.org for further information and instruction or if you have any questions.

I really wish I could afford the $150+ in fees for this right now. If you need help in other areas please let me know and I will see if I can help in other ways.

We do need help in other areas, but remember that the application is only $20 to begin. The $95 DOJ and fingerprint rolling fees, as well and balance of local fees, come later. Your total exposure right now is $20.

Excuse my ignorance I am new to this site. I also, live in Merced County and would like to apply for the CCW, but on the request for a doctors note I just changed jobs and my insurance coverage is with Kaiser and my family doctor of many years no longer is under my covered plan which was HMO. This S****.
