I did the same thing had a gun being Dros at the time of my appointment. Melissa Soto told me they take the guns and serial numbers off your training certificate, so take what guns you want to add to class when you do the training.

-i was out by 1:29

There is nothing to be intimidated about!

You only need to enter "Self Defense." That's it.

It takes a month from the time they do the residency check to the time you get the email? WTH?! Got my residency check last Thursday.

Default The Long Wait

For those of you guys who are behind me, here is my timeline:

5/31. Interview
6/2-3 Training
6/9 Residency check
6/20 Preliminary approval
6/20 Livescan completed

Since June 20 - Nada. No news as of today. I'm waiting for my permit pickup appointment and the wait is painful. It's been 51 days since the interview, but from what I can gather from other forum posters, I need to wait until I reach 60 days before I shoot off an email. For those of you just starting the process, figure 90 days from your interview. Congratulations to those who have received a permit, and patience be granted to those of us still in the queue.

My understanding is that it takes 5 to 8 weeks for DOJ approval. This time period starts at payment of the $93 and live scan process. At least that is what I was told at my live scan process in mid July.

They want you to bring passport pics and they keep one that goes on your file. Your drivers license pic is the one they use for your residency check. And the pic they take of you at your interview is the one that goes on your carry licence so remember to give them a big ol cheese grin.

How long does it take for the CA DOJ to mail your liveScan results to OCDS once it completes? It's been 19 days and Sheriff says it's not in yet.

Give it about a month for each stage. Even if your live scan is back early your gonna wait about a month. While your waiting get your training done.

It took about 8 weeks for my firearms after the FBI and CA DOJ before I heard anything on the firearms so hope this helps you.

I requested an appointment online yesterday and I got a confirmation with an appointment date this morning for this coming December. I'm not sure what this first appointment is about. The email required that I bring the application and a few other documents. I will keep the board posted of the progress.

Read through the early stages of this thread and the other OC threads and you'll see what the interview entails and what you need to bring.

I'll bet a dime to a donut that your interview gets moved up, so get your paperwork in order.

Good luck

I completed the Livescan process and paid my $93 for DOJ in mid-July. My 16hrs of training is done as well. What is the next step in the process and how long did you guys wait for DOJ approval?

i signed up originally in march of this year. i took the ccw class first as i figured it would fill up fast and i was ready for another class anyways. i got my original date for aug of 2015! that changed to april 24th 2014, fast forward i get my pickup date of aug 28th! 8 more days. i got the approval 3 weeks ago. i dont understand what such a long wait to pick up? i have had a few friends get theirs and they said it took 10 min to pick it up. That said the whole process is messed up thoes friends started after me but finished before me just seems like its a big cluster at the ocsd lol i hope for everyone else the process gets smoothed out. last i heard there was about 6k applicants for oc. carry on brothers!

This is kind of concerning. I got my approval email on 8/14 but can't pick it up until 9/16. I wonder why Melissa is so far behind? It only takes 10 minutes to get the card.

Everyone is being approved in Orange County unless your a real knucklehead criminal. So have lots of patience and your time will come.

Carry every day and stay safe!

She's got other duties besides passing the cards out.

They need more people.

The Cost? Let's see:
DOJ Fee $93
Permit Fee $102.22
Course Work $230
Ammo for Course Work $150

This doesn't include multiple trips to the Sheriff's office or other miscellaneous purchases for carry gear.

I think I have been lost and not found yet!
May 14 Interview
May 25 Residence Check
June 13 & 14 Training at FTA
June 22 Email from Yolanda with livescan form
June 24 Livescan at Fullerton PD
June 25 Called DOJ automated phone number 916-227-4557, Both DOJ & FBI were completed and forwarded to OCSD.
August 22 I called Yolanda to check to see if I was forgotten, She stated Livescan was in yet.
This is why, I feel I have been lost and not yet found! There a Country Song in there somewhere.... LOL
