Mid January. I was lucky however and brought lots of documentation to the first interview, so much they asked if I could do the 2nd interview the same day and pay the $105 , so that’s what I did. Not sure if that shortened the process that much as I just got approved and I think its about 8 weeks now.

What do you do if you don't work? It seems like all of these good cause statements are based on work. Is a person who doesnt work, like a retiree, out of luck?

I'm retired and got my permit in December.

I used "shooting in remote parts of the county where cell service is sketchy and police response time would be delayed." The value of my truck and guns puts me at an increased risk for theft. There is also the threat of attacks from wild animals when we're at our shooting spot and while we hike.

I included:
The dates I went (1-3 times per month for the last six months)
Map of location
Pictures of the area
Pictures of my guns
Pictures of me, my buddy, my guns and my truck (while holding a copy of the front page of the San Diego Union to substantiate the date)
Receipts for the guns to substantiate their value

You don't have to use shooting. You could use hiking, camping, off-roading, etc. Think about how you can "prove" that you do whatever it is that you say you do. For example, if you camp, can you get a receipt from the campground, etc.

I would also strongly encourage you to read and study the information on SDCGO's website thoroughly, and attend one of their CCW seminars.

For sure make an appointment, you will have plenty of time to work on your good cause and take a seminar on how to get cow.

My second interview was mid Jan also. Haven’t heard anything yet. Getting a little worried with people being approved 40, 47 days and seeing people from mid Jan getting their approval letters. Hopefully it’s an oversight and mine is on the way. Fingers crossed

They take their own sweet time, you can call them and ask for the status on your app, I did after about 6 weeks but they just said it’s being processed and they could be waiting for something regarding background to come in. You’ll probably hear next week sometime. I just called this morning to get an appt to come in to pick up the permit but they told me the guy wasn’t in today. So the wait goes on!

Yeah I think I will give a call next Friday if I don't hear anything before then. That will be around 70 days. The anticipation is really getting to me!! haha

Owner at work called last month to make an appointment ... early August was the soonest. No surprise there based on what we've seen.

But the sheriff's office called him today to reschedule for a sooner date ... week of April 22nd was pretty much wide open. That's a massive difference in availability! Anyone else heard of an earlier reschedule?

I hope it is...and not a slow down of applicants. Or even worse, reverting back to pre 2018. Let’s hope they have a better system in place that is causing the faster appointment times

I don’t think they are reverting but could be a slow down in applicants . It’s not a cheap venture for a lot of people. They’re looking at $400-500 bucks when you add fees and the class. I can see how it might be slowing somewhat!

I was looking at ccw class prices a year ago , looks like they’ve gone from $100-150 to $250. These guys saw an opportunity. I paid 250 last Thursday . So this could very we’ll be a reason for lower volume of people applying.

Don't even get me started. I paid $200 for my class. It's highway robbery for what it is.

I took an 8 hour course June of 2014 with CCW USA Firearms Training. Is that still good for applying or am I going to have to retake the course?

You must retake and within a time limit, I forget, something like 30 days.

And it doesn't help that there is "approved list" of 29 instructors/training facilities that you have to select from.

Just picked mine up this morning, real nice guy named Bernardo helped me out. I asked if their was any slowdown in applications he said NO that they were backed up now through December. I guess it’s not cost prohibitive to lots of people yet. Anyone still interested should probably get going on it before the wait gets longer !
