Default Is Sacramento CCW and 2a friendly?

Might be making a move out there. Wondering how it is there. Also, any specific areas to avoid moving to?

"self defense" is just cause here under Sheriff Jones. Unless you've done stupid stuff in the past, should be good to go.

Shall issue in Sacramento county. Folsom is a nice area but a bit pricey. Lots of other nice places to live.

There are a lot of areas around Sacramento where you might not want to live due to environment or cost. The list is long.

There are other areas which suck for commuting to downtown.

The reason for your possible move is important...are the Kings drafting you?

If you go west, across the river, you'll be in Yolo County which is no issue, and inundated by UC Davis socialists. You'll also have to cross the Yolo Causeway Traffic Jam to get to or from Sacramento.

All true regarding Yolo County. Davis is very liberal. Some of that has spilled into Woodland, but it’s not as bad as Davis and is significantly cheaper to purchase a home or rent.

Sacramento is shall issue. You're good there.

As far as areas to avoid, their are plenty. Their are also a lot of great areas. Given the option I would go towards El Dorado. If you go too far you end up in El Dorado County but they are shall issue as well. Any idea where you will be commuting to work and what kind of commute window you are aiming for? It might help with suggestions.

I’m in Folsom, which is Sacramento county. No problem getting my CCW here. The only drag is they require 16 hour initial course, but there is at least one place that will let you do it all in one (very long) day.
Also the card they issue you is too big to fit into any human sized wallet, but if you cut it down you can make it fit.
Folsom is a beautiful city, and it’s great for families. The PD here is awesome, no beggars on street corners, nice landscaping, no graffiti. Only 90 minutes from Tahoe, 2 hours from Reno. Plus Folsom lake is great for boating/fishing.

Sacramento is very CCW friendly. This county is basically as close to shall issue as you can get in California. You have to show residency, self defense is the basic good cause, and you have to have a reasonably decent (emptyish) criminal record. 16 hours is the required course and the course of fire is standardized across all Sacramento CCW instructors. Not too bad actually!

Some years, it’s also great for hiking out to Mormon Island, which is usually under 90’ of water.

Some good posts here guys. I'm temporarily renting in Elk Grove but considering moving to the east side. There are some really nice places in Folsom, Roseville, and that whole general area.

I took a quick peek and noticed CCWs for Sacramento County require qualifying with each handgun. Is it an easy enough shooting test?

Do the Sacramento calguns members ever do any meets or events? In San Bernardino County, we have large bi-annual meetup/shoots.

Yes, if you can’t pass the re-qual, you shouldn’t even own a handgun, much less carry one lol. The only problem is you need to find an instructor that separates initial from re-qual. Last time I went to a class that was a 2 day initial qualification, with the second day adding re-qual to the group for the range time. I stood around for hours while he instructed a couple people how to actually use a handgun. Won’t make that mistake again.

@lightsunglasses. There’s a whole thread on Sac CCW program activity at: https://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/...52779&page=118

Scroll back a few pages and you’ll get a sense of what’s going on.

Also, The Gun Range has a lay down in their FAQs of the https://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/...ourse of Fire.. It’s the State’s BSIS standard for armed security. This is the Standard for Sacramento County; Placer and El Dorado May have a different CoF.

Quote:
Course of fire. Each individual shall discharge 50 rounds according to the following schedule: (All stages are unsupported.)

Stage 1 – from 15 yards, in a standing position, draw and fire 6 rounds in 30 seconds
Stage 2 – from 7 yards, draw and fire 14 rounds in 45 seconds
Starting from a standing position draw and fire 6 rounds and reload
Then, moving immediately to a kneeling position, fire 6 rounds, reload and fire 2 more rounds
Stage 3 – from 7 yards, standing position, draw and fire 6 rounds in 10 seconds
Stage 4 – from 7 yards, standing position, draw and fire 6 rounds with strong hand only, reload, switch hands to support hand and fire 6 more rounds in 25 seconds
Stage 5 – from 5 yards, standing position, draw and fire 3 rounds in 4 second. Repeat 1x for a total of 6 rounds (2 separate stages)
Stage 6 – from 3 yards, standing position, draw and fire 2 rounds in 3 seconds. Repeat 2x for a total of 6 rounds (3 separate stages)
Scoring. The course of 50 rounds discharged shall be used for scoring.

Silhouette targets shall be used. A 5 point score shall be granted for each round discharged inside of the seven (7) ring (center mass).
Each individual shall qualify with an 80% score (200 out of 250 points) on the scoring segment.

Yes, head up to El Dorado Nation forest. I live in Fair Oaks (Sac Suburbs) and its about a 50 minutes drive each way. The Sheriff in El Dorado County is pro 2A as well. Generally nothing is ever inspected or checked for "legality". Just if your targets are mounted on trees ( a big no no ) or shooting across roads.
