Default Applying for CCW in San Joaquin County

Hi Everyone,
Im in the process of applying for a CCW permit in San Joaquin County, CA.

A little background: when I first started talking to the Administrative Sergeant to request an application, I was told that I didnt qualify for a CCW, based on my background (i.e. no special circumstances).

I was told that the Sheriff could be held personally liable for any CCW permit that is issued. Thus, few are issued.

I eventually called-back, informing them that Id like to take my chances and apply anyhow. I received the paperwork today, and am working on getting it completed.

I have a clean record, and was Honorably Discharged from the Marine Corps. Thus, I have experience w/ the handling and firing of various weapons. Im hopeful that I can use this background to my advantage.

I'm putting together my good-cause statement. Would it be possible to PM someone to have a look at it?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome! CCWInsructor is the man to PM. He helped me out with some fine touches on my GC statement and I believe he has helped a lot of other people as well.

Good luck!

We do not display our good causes on line. I would advise you to PM your good cause to ccwinstructor. He might be able to help.

And that "the Sheriff could be held personally liable" business is a load of crap. Look through your application paperwork and you'll see that you sign a statement specifically releasing the Sheriff from all liability.
