Default Concealed carry in California

I believe Cali is a may issue state so it depends on your local sheriff and from what I heard the one's up north are a little more lenient when issuing a CCW. Also, even if you have a CCW for X county that doesn't mean you can carry in LA county for example. Try this link http://www.californiaconcealedcarry.com/faq.html#f20

The test is if the Sheriff likes your "good cause statement". Goto Calguns.net and they have a list of county by county chances of getting a LTC from the CLEO. Some CLEOs will not give you one at all, some just want you to talk to one of their people first to make sure you are not some wacko. Cost varies by CLEO. Some want you to pass a local class on CCW laws, some CLEOs want more than that.

Thanks for clearing that up. One of my co-workers said he couldn't when he lived there. To the OP that's why it's important to read the law books though.

i live in sutter county and saying self defense is good enough but there are countys that want you to have been a victim of a crime or a business owner who can prove you carry large amounts of money but yes you still have to go through an interview process by the sheriffs dept befor you get approved.

Send CA357 a PM. He's in your neighborhood (figuratively) and has got his permit within the past year. (Needed to move out of Sacramento.) I'm sure he would be glad to provide you with insight.

Californication is a May Issue state and permit holders are NOT required to inform.

Your local Sheriff or Chief of Police issues the permit.

STANDARD APPLICATION FOR LICENSE TO CARRY A CONCEALED WEAPON (CCW)
