    San Diego?

    Well, I am looking at a new job in San Diego this week. At the very least I get three nights in a beach front hotel all expenses paid. I checked packing.org for the legal skinny. Should I actually take the job and move to California, does anyone on here have any real world experience with getting a permit in SoCal?

    Well...I lived in the desert about 3 hours north in Kern county and it was no problem.
    I've not a clue about San Diego county, but it sure is nice there...

    I lived in SD for years, and love it there. I'd live there again, CCW or no.

    Based on what I've heard, you have a better chance of winning the lottery than getting a concealed carry permit in San Diego County.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Some numbers on San Diego CCW

    If you go to the website:
    California CCW
    and look under San Diego County, you will see that the population is 2,918,300 and 1703 CCW permits are issued, for an issuance rate of 0.058%.

    The county sheriff is Bill Kolender, who has restrictive issuance policies requiring a "statement of cause" for CCW issuance that shows the applicant has a greater than average need for self defense. Successful applicants are usually those who deal with criminals for a living, or those who carry money and valuables in connection with their jobs. The cost of applying for a 2 year permit will be a few hundred dollars, and you won't know if you have the permit until you have spent the money. None of the expenditure is refundable if you are turned down.

    Here is another website with information on San Diego CCW application:

    Perhaps if more shooters move there, things might get more gun friendly.

    Isn't necessarily getting more gunners to move there as it is to get active (not movie) gunners in political office. The tree-huggers and anti's would have nothing to do with that.

    California is beautiful, and San Diego is as climately perfect as possible in my book, but the real problem with California is there are people there. Get rid of the people, I would move to California.

    One thing I can say for certain, stay away from National City. Little burb just off the naval station, and south of downtown Diego, but two steps away from a ghetto. I lived there in '93-'94. Trust me, when Dominoes won't deliver, there is a problem.

    Thanks for the heads-up purple. I think most of my time is going to be up in Encinitas. I will probably do some scouting around for a day, and will steer clear of National.

    One More Thing...

    learn to speak Spanish...REALLY...and good luck getting a CCW permit. If you SHOULD get one...immediately go out and buy a lottery ticket...because you'll be on a winning streak!

    Stay safe!

    Beautiful place to live, but not gun friendly and expensive to live. I left 6 years ago.

    I lived in north San Diego county for 35 years and just left a year ago. Forget about getting a CCW in SD county. It's next to impossible. Kern and Orange counties are fairly easy, but you need to be a resident of those counties.

    if you really want the job, and don't mind a long commute, you can look into living in Orange County. the sheriff there is one of the best in the state on CCW issuance. most of the rest of the state is SOL unless you live in a rural county.

    He's got a point. Depending on if you're gonna work in Downtown SD or a northern part.

    South Orange County is very nice. Maybe 30-40 minutes to about Miramar without traffic. I drive that long to work here, and I can virtually see my house from work (if it wasn't for that dang mountain)

    My folks lived there many years. great place to visit, but I'd never live there. Good luck on the interview, and enjoy the trip!
