    California CCW

    Hey guys, just a quick plug for anyone that is interested in getting their CCW in California. I know CA gets a bad rap for CCW issuance from alot of people but it can be done. Some counties are pretty much impossible, others are almost shall issue and even others are in fact shall issue.

    I originally applied for my CCW permit at the beginning of this year and was denied because of lack of good cause. I pretty much gave up at that point.

    A few months later I stumbled upon http://californiaccw.org

    The advice I got from the members was outstanding. With their help, I rewrote my Good Cause and today I picked up my permit.

    Our site is a bit different from other similar sites (such as this one) in that the main goal is to promote and encourage CCW issuance within the state of California. We hold ourselves to a very high standard as what we say/post and do can either have a negative or positive effect on how the rest of the population views CCW permit holders. To the uneducated/uninformed we are nothing but gun crazy individuals. The fact is that we come from all walks of life. We have attorneys, Realtors, Republicans, Democrats, even a secret celebrity as members.

    It is extremely difficult in some areas to get your CCW. You can do one of two things. Move or get invloved. Become a voice of change. The more individuals we have on our side the better chance we have at CCW reform.

    Everyone In California Is Allowed CCW...

    Although California defines 'CCW', as "Can't Carry Weapons."

    OWIH...(only what I've heard)

    Stay safe...

    That's the misconception. It may be true in some counties, but in Orange County there are currently around 1300 active permits. Low #'s if you are measuring it by other states but nontheless... I am legally carrying an H&K USP Compact .45 at this very moment. That's the thing about what you hear, it's not always the case.

    And by all means, always stay safe.

    California is not Florida by a long shot when it comes to CCW. But people can and do get issued. I did.

    Chris! There's 10 posts here and 6 of them are YOURS!

    But Chris is right. CA gets a bad rap because of places like SF and LA, but there's a CCW movement happening there and Orange County is in the thick of it, thanks to Sheriff Mike Carona. All of you Orange Countians, and other Californians who haven't been there (www.californiaccw.org) yet, come and check it out.

    Best wishes to all the folks in CA that work hard to get their ccw. In places that are difficult to obtain a ccw it is ever more necessary to obtain one. It shows that responsible law abiding citizens are exercising their freedoms.

    I go down Tuesday and finish up the last step in obtaining my CCW. The Sheriff has already given tentative approval pending the background check.
