Yes, you have to call to make a appointment to turn in the application. Last year it took me a month. I know it is currently over 4 months to even get a appointment to turn in the application.

If I remember correctly, adding one to my permit took close to 6 weeks.

Hello everyone, came across this thread via google and I have some info I thought might be helpful. I went to a citizen's forum the other night where the Sheriff was speaking and he said that he is signing "at least two boxes worth of CCWs a week." Take from that what you will, I'm not sure how many that is relatively.

But more interestingly, speaking to a deputy there, I also heard that the Sheriff's office is soon gonna start implementing a system called 'Permitium,' which he said would drastically speed up wait times for applications, appointments, etc. I was not familiar with it, but here is their site: http://permitium.com/about.html

Must be why they’re too busy to answer the phone. Called twice this week, just left a message. We’ll see how long until they return my call.

I was notified via email that my lapsed LTC has been approved and is ready to pick up. Only a three week period where I could not carry; one kind of gets used to carrying. I started the renewal process three months prior to the expiration date.

I believe they are swamped with applications but are still being professional.

Same amount of time for me without. Yes, after you carry everyday for 4 years you do get used to it and get uncomfortable without it.

Just picked up my renewal today. The nice lady working the desk said they should have more people working the permit process, but for next time, try and apply 4-5 months prior to expiration.

Just a "heads up" in SJ county, I called today for a renewal appointment and got a date towards the end of August. Little more than a month out.

I went through valley defense and Vince was amazing. I highly recommend his course! I was sent to him by a family that is in law enforcement. Was very pleased and the range day is a awesome private range that is from the holster all day long.

Duncan Ramirez at FIRST RESPONSE, tactial firearms and training. My wife and I used him as he was highly recommended by everyone who carries at my work. I can't recommend him enough. Classes are Saturday and Sunday for the initial and we will be going back to do "refresher trainings" for the low low price of the LGR range free for a 4 hour sit each month. Seriously, give him a look and call him.

If you dont want to leave Tracy, I think Silvercreek Security Academy is still doing them. That's who I used for my Initial and subsequent renewal.

Thank you all for the recommendations. Its interesting comparing them all and some charging extra fees for more than 1 handgun qualification.

Question for those of you who list more than 1 firearm:
Do you need to bring a holster for each one or are you going through the training with what you consider your primary and your other two are only brought out at the end for qualifications?

Anyone know the current lead times for interviews? Also how smooth the process is with SJ? Just moved here and starting the process. Any tips would be appreciated.

They are really slow on renewals. I re-applied earlier than when they said to, and my permit expired, and the application is still "pending".

I thought the new sheriff was going to speed up the CCW process, not slow it down. Renewals as far as I know were not an issue under sheriff Moore. They were pretty quick. My last renewal was a 2 week process.

I hope they fix this quick. I think it's unacceptable to file early and then end up with an expired permit because of their inefficiencies.

Good luck, hope you get the call today. Make sure they are aware that they've allowed your permit to expire.

^^ Yep, things were supposedly going to be better. Definitely slower now, from what I have seen. Very disappointing.

Good news is on the horizon. They are in the process of implementing an online application/renewal system that will speed up the process for everyone. And we will soon be getting plastic licenses instead of the laminated paper.

Good news indeed, thanks. No excuse for allowing permits to expire but it is good news.

When I initially went in to pick up my first CCW almost 3 years ago, at about the longest wait period. I asked the desk lady how many they were processing every week. She stated they were doing about 20, but it had slowed to about 10.

I really don't see how they are swamped.

I really don't see how a online system is going to streamline a thing.
Hopefully I am wrong, but I would guess it will get worse!

Potentially disconcerting news coming from SJSO about possible temporary program suspensions at 11 AM today.

https://www.recordnet.com/news/20190...eriff-cutbacks

4.5 years of labor/contract negotiations, some people leaving because of that, temporary personnel cutbacks. It does not look like Professional Standards is affected. Apparently the chopper will be seeing less airtime as well.
