well i finish the process for my california ccw today i was handed my permit around 2:30 today jan 27,2006 went home watched a little tv for an hour then got cleaned up and loaded up. i went to the bank then went to the mall and had dinner and got a new cell phone (part of the self defense package) then went to the gun store to buy some pepper spray. the whole time i was packing my xd40 sub with one extra mag. people are oblivious in southern california. so now i am just going to carry my sw .38 spl till my holster comes in the mail for the xd i have the holster that comes with the xd but i think it sucks and should only be used for the range. anyway just wanted to let you guys know i did get a california permit in orange county.
