From what Iíve heard SB is fairly easy to be approved. The best thing that helped me was writing a detailed good cause letter. I originally just wrote a short paragraph, when i had my interview my investigator had me submit a more in-depth good cause letter. Be honest about you fears for yourself and family. I know in my area we have VERY little police patrol unit for a very large area and i put that in my good cause. Dont lie or embellish, just be honest and it shouldnít be an issue!

Welcome to Calguns. Iím originally from Riverside, now going through the CCW process through SB county. Until approved through SB, Iím limited to carrying my G19 and 43X around the house and out of state. Iíve found the T1C axis slim and Vedder litetuck work best for my style of dress and body type. As far as the belt, Iíve been using a KORE, at the recommendation of a couple calgunners, for a couple months and it has really worked out great so far.

Thank you for carrying. The more of us there are, the more that the bad guys will take their business elsewhere.

Gear? I strongly dislike kydex. All my "good" holsters are leather. Milt Sparks and TT Gunleather are my two favorite makers. Check out their webpages, see what they have, then give them a call for guidance.

Frankly, as a newbie, you might be most comfortable carrying Inside the Waist Band. But for me, the G19 could be a bit limiting for IWB. Get one holster, where it, get some experience, and then use that to decide if you need anything else. It's easy to go wild and end up with guns and holsters that just aren't quite right for your situation.

Be alert, stay safe.

Welcome-

There are so many potential combinations. You will probably change numerous times, before you arrive at every day carry favorites. Keep an open mind. I have proven myself wrong, over and over again.

Iím not a kydex fan. All of my go to holsters are leather. I would also recommend Milt Sparks. EDC is a 1911, in a Milt Sparks Nexus. 1911 because I shoot it well. Sparks makes the size and weight of the 1911 doable. I have a couple of Blackhawk leather IWBís that work well. Get accustomed to carrying daily.

Donít hesitate to ask questions here. Thereís always a volume of helpful information.
Be safe, be smart!

Get CCW insurance immediately just in case you need it, I have it and just like any weapon I carry I hope that I DO NOT HAVE TO USE IT. Both are for my protection

Welcome to the forum!

Note that there are several recent belt threads in the Concealed Carry Gear board and also the Firearms Accessories board. A search for "belts" should yield some good results. My preference is for the Ares Aegis Enhanced belt. It is well worth the $$.

Thanks, the wait, so far, has been the hardest part.

As far as an easily concealable single-stack 9mm goes, the 43X really fits the bill and the hand, quite nicely. Much easier to shoot and get back on target than I thought it would be. Only complaint I have is the ndlc finish showing obvious signs of wear from daily draw stroke practice. Iíll likely have the slide cerakoted at some point.

San Bernardino is shall issue. They crank them out like it's a printing press and they've been doing it for decades.

As for belt, it is really you get what you pay for. Double thickness. Reinforced. Purpose built for gun carry. Don't compromise or think you can get by with regular belts. They can't and you'll be disappointed.

Good Job, but not many say how much in total cost in money to get permission to be able to defend yourself. The state is making a lot of money in so many way to give us permission to do so many things. Truck them.

Welcome Slyaker. I carry a G43 or a G19 and I do so with e StealthGear Mini and a relentless belt. $50 for the belt from Amazon if memory serves me.

Welcome! I'm in The O.C.

I, too, highly recommend insurance. I personally have used CCW Safe for over three years now.

You'll be pleased, I'm sure.
I have two 1 1/4" Kore Essentials belts. One for dressing up, one for dressing down. They're also a good gun belt for a moderate sized gun. I have one 1 1/2" Kore Essentials belt for when I'm packing something big.

The oldest of these belts lasted for nearly two years of daily use before it needed to be downgraded to "casual status."

Welcome to a being able to care for yourself.

Blue Alpha. I like belts with Velcro tag ends, you can cover holster clips, loops etc with them.

I carry a G26 in a tier 1 concealed holster with a vedder gun belt. Hoping to add a G19 soon. I have uscca for insurance coverage. Don’t dismiss kydex holsters altogether. A quality kydex holster is the safest option and molded specifically for your gun.
