    Hey people.

    I need to know what the lays about getting a concealed gun inj California are and how you can do it legally. My questions are

    1) what is the minimum age requirement

    2)what type of permit is required

    3) would a small beretta be a good choice? (I don't know much about guns, so please tell me the basics only.)

    Thank you very much for the info:rl:

    Depends on where you are for how easy it is to get a CCL

    1) 21 to buy a pistol, 18 to buy a rifle (It is possible to get a pistol at 18, but it is difficult)
    2) Rifle: none, Pistol: a Handgun Safety Certificate. I dont know all that much about it though, talk to a gun shop.
    3) If you don't know alot about guns, I would not recomend that you instantly go to a small firearm. Go to a range, rent a bunch of guns, and find out what you like. Once you are reasonably proficient, then you can start thinking about smaller firearms. Also, I do not know many people with the small berettas, I would recomend that you look at Glock, XD, etc instead.

    Sheriff's department. A few of my friend's parents even work for them. One has a FA MP5 I get to hold. Soon enough we will go shooting, her dad promises :)

    Where exactly do you live citywise?

    Actually, IIRC, she turned it in.

    received a reply on 3/13/2000 from Mayor Brown re: my letter about this incident. He states that:
    Ms. Feinstein voluntarily relinquished her pistol permit and weapon a long time ago.
    I play hard but fair. If she no longer has the permit and the weapon, my other pages, leaflets, and so on will be modified accordingly.

    Wasco, we don't have police here, I would also need to apply with the Sheriff's department.

    His was probably the most accurate and to the point.

    In the green counties it's possible to get a concealed carry permit, but you can still be denied at the whim of the chief of police, who has to sign off on your application. Anywhere else, good effing luck.

    Oh yeah, that's a red county. Don't even bother, unless you're a politician or celebrity.

    you can forget about it. the sheriff is very anti-gun and will hardly issue or renew. there are maybe about 50 ccws in the entire county, one which is issued to sean penn.

    I'm sure it was purely symbolic, and was returned to her shortly thereafter.
    Plus, she still has the CCW... so even if she did turn her gun in, she could just buy another gun... if she doesnt already have more than one. Which I'm sure she does if she has a CCW.

    She's such a hypocritical whore. And a bitch.
