Default how to aquire ccw?

I would like to know, exactly was is needed to be done to possessing a ccw permit. Paperwork, classes, whatever whatever. I heard its a real pain to get one, but I figure the sooner I start, the quicker I may or may not get it. I honestly do not see a point walking around with a gun on your hip in the open (unloaded at that) if someone or somewhere has a list of to do's and can point me in the right direction, that would be cool.

Move to a state in America, that should do the job.

You aren't going to be able to walk around with that unloaded open carried gun on your hip soon anyway.

how to aquire ccw?

Your start by applying with your city Police Department, or if your city uses the Sheriff as PD, apply with the Sheriff. Everything else depends on your casual statement and county you apply in.

Find your county in the list of threads, go from there.
Calguns Wiki, Magazine Qs, Knife laws

Unless there is some way to amend a bill so you would support it,
the details do not matter until the Governor signs or allows the bill to become law.

Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum
- most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
