Default Active Military CCW

It appears you can CCW if you are on active duty USMC.

Do you need a CCW permit or just your military ID?

Does it matter what your firearm is?

Really? Please post the California laws and regulations that allow such practice. That would be wonderful, if it were verifiable.

I think he might be citing a court case back east dealing with LESO and the Coast Guard. It's been a while since I read up on it.

If that is the case, it sets no presidence in the 9th circuit till it is used in a test case out here.

US Military while on duty may CCW if their duties specifically allow (IE: officer couriers while carrying classified materials, Military Police in plainclothes, etc). Thus an MP in plain clothes that is not otherwise a Federal LEO could CCW while on duty. The Army used to actually issue a CCW to MP investigators that were not Federal LEO's (No knowledge if that is still the case).

Of course US military while on duty are pretty much restricted only by in what their active orders specify.

All protections cease when not on duty. There is a history / custom in that commissioned officers are never technically off-duty & as such could CCW unless prohibited by the chain of command. I have no knowledge if that has ever been tested in CA.

as a fellow military member, i would highly advise against it OP. California is no place to test the waters, you could lose your career, and possibly even the right to own firearms. Just go get a legal permit, then you have no worries.

i doubt that being active duty would hurt your chances of getting a permit, if you know what i mean

The reason I ask is that in "How to Own a Gun & Stay Out of Jail" Californina issue 2008 page59 Chapter 2 pargraph 47 under "Execptions for Groups of People" states as such.

It just seemed a little strange, hence the reason for my thread.
