Default CCW's in Alameda Co.

Does anyone have information on obtaining CCW's in Alameda Co., other than when hell freezes over? I currently have CCW's for NV and UT, but that does not help me here.

CCWI,
Thanks for the info, at least there is hope. Now if someone can just supply the Silver Bullet to getting one here, it would be great. It's coming up with that reason that's hard.

Are these the numbers of total (in other words, existing plus newly issued) permits for each of those years in Ala. Co., or the number of new permits issued in each of those years?

Thanks.

Not really hard. From the look of it:

A) Be a retired LEO/FBI/Judge
B) Know the sheriff personally
C) Both of the above

Seems easy enough.

Default Alameda County CCW

I have a CCW in Alameda Co. and have had it for about 10 years. I am neither a retired judge or LEO nor did I know Sheriff Plummer personally; I actually never met him. Without giving any details, let's just say that it seems to me that the criteria for approving a CCW application is fairly reasonable. Each year when I shoot to requalify at the range in Santa Rita, the other permit holders seem to be about half civilians (Who I'm sure had good cause) and half ex-LEO or retired public officials. That all being said, as I'm sure you know, Ala. Co. has a new Sheriff (Ahern), so there could be some changes in the process. So it's not impossible, just difficult.

I bet that half civilians are buddies,political contributors, and judges. Of course there are exceptions like maybe yourself, but still.
Also, I dont know what you mean by fairly reasonable. Is issuing to retired public official and not to an ordinary law abiding citizen fairly reasonable?

Just to confirm, you qualify every year?

Thanks for the clarification, I thought that they were new ones. Looks like I'm still SOL unless I move.

I just talked to the CCW Department at the Sheriff's office, no change in policy with the new guy.

State law says every two years. They can be more restrictive, I wasn't aware anybody was. Good to know. Thanks.
