Just purchased first Pistol last month . Glock 26 and reason for purchasing is that I wanted to have protection outside my home . Something small that can carry . Do I go for the ccw permit? I don't really have a job that would be good enough cause. I know about the 9th previous decision . My Father works for our local Sheriff Dept. he states that you will still need a good cause in your application other than self defense .
Is there any other options ?
Classes for Security Gaurd ? Private investigator etc?
Please give input if you know the easiest route. I know this is California and it's all BS here
Hmm. I guess it depends on which county you live in. The county I used to live in, in KA, allowed "self-defense" to be the justification for getting a concealed carry permit.
I never did, because I knew I wasn't going to be there long enough to justify the cost (my county also required a psych eval).
My recommendation is to talk to your sheriff, face-to-face, and try to gauge how he stands on it. He might accept self-defense as a valid reason to have a concealed carry permit.
Also I recommend trying anyway if you have the money. If you are turned down, maybe you could get the NRA and CalGuns involved and maybe take it to court? It would be a long battle but if you're successful it could conceivably help others in the long run.
I would just go for a ccw,if you work nights or in a rural area or if you carry large amours of cash are good enough I would think.
I'm here in ca also but the county I'm in is a shall issue and self defense is a good reason.
Also remember that some states allow you to apply in other counties within the state. Your permit is legal statewide no matter which Sheriff approves it. Read your law carefully and see if there is a nearby county that could qualify to issue your permit. Also, if you have ever had to file for a restraining order or handle large deposits for your business (High risk target) then you may have a valid reason.

Even in NH, with our excellent gun rights, we still have a spot on the application that wants to know why you want the permit. I put "For a all lawful purposes". But, we are a shall issue state.
I don't see what the problem is. Everybody is being nice, and getting along, and I, for one, am learning stuff. So, if you don't like the discussion, don't look at the thread. Or, simply cut to the chase, and close it.
Is there an age limit for a thread, after which we kill it?
