Default CCW applicant in Sacramento county.

Hello, everyone!

I'm currently starting the process of applying for my permit in Sacramento county. I have a interview with sac sheriff on the 4th and wanted to go into it with as much knowledge about this whole thing as possible.

Any info about the process would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you remember questions they asked that would help a ton!

.......if you are asked about something (the same thing), two or three times, you may want to expand on your answer or facts a bit more. you really cannot "prepare", for the oral interview. the best thing is to just be calm and be yourself. it is pretty low key. do not try to bull**** the interviewer. they are very good and do have the training to read people.

The sac sheriff's office does a good job, and they are pretty low key. Like another said, just be yourself and tell the truth. They make you feel pretty comfortable down there. For training/class I'd recommend Wes with LFI guns. Higher price tag than others, but worth every penny. He has a sheriff's background and is well-learned in his skills, lots of knowledge to be learned from him. Don't go cheap on something so important as training to potentially use a firearm in public.

Just as said above, just be yourself.. Don't BS them..they have everything they need to know about you already in front of them, so just be honest and thorough. My experience couldn't have gone any smoother.. I had my initial appointment 4/16. Good luck to you!

You don't get your training until they tell you you are preliminarily approved - don't go get it yet.

Step 1 - Appt to drop off your ap. They will go over the stuff on your app. They will ask about drug use, criminal background, etc. Don't BS - don't go out of your way to volunteer anything that's not relevant/part of the record. They folks down there are very professional.

Step 2 - Receive your preliminary approval.

Step 3 - Go get your Livescan

Step 4 - Receive your "good to go" letter

Step 5 - Get your training

Step 6 show up with proof of training (IDR if you need an appointment for that or not - think you do)

Go home with your permit....

If you have ever been arrested tell them, I thought an arrest that was dismissed in 86 wasn't on my record.....the second interviewer told me it was...oops. so be truthful . And you'll be ok.

Make sure you have all the proof of residency COPIES that they ask for. When I was there they turned two people with appointments away because they didn't have them. Silly to waste your time over such a simple mistake.
The interview itself was just as everyone else has stated, very low-key. Just be polite, cool and respectful, don't try to hide anything and you should be good.
For the training, I recommend "Best handgun training" in Lincoln. They were the only place I could find that had the entire 16 hour course in ONE DAY It was a long day (maybe not exactly 16 hours) but it was nice to get it done all at once.

Sixteen hours must be their course length. My course was more like 8, if I recall correctly.

The only questions they are suppose to ask are the ones on the application.

When I went to the back office to be interviewed (again) by a detective, he repeated most of the same questions while behind a computer (back ground check?).

He did ask about storage (not on the application) I answered I owned a safe.

In hindsight, I was a bit peeved. That question isn't on the app. And had I pointed that out, I may very well have been denied simply for putting them in check or for being "uncooperative".

It IS NOT their business to know how we maintain storage in the home. But, they asked and I let them get away with it...

This part of the process is not a test. There are no right or wrong answers. Just tell the truth.
