Here in Ca. I live in a county that will issue a CCP. We are limited to 3 handguns and only the ones we qualify with. The Caliber Model and Ser# are captured on the permit. Any deviation and you are breaking the law. The Permits last 2 years. NO modifications are being honored... So Choose wisely... 2 years and you "May" be allowed to renew and at that time you can modify what you carry. It also hinges on who is the current Sheriff in power as they issue the permits and it varies per the County you live in... Elections for Sheriff can change everything here.. NO reciprocity in any other state... You have to get separate non resident CCPs. Living in California... you are under the thumb of the extreme left... Mindset You are Guilty and have to prove you are innocent. We are moving within the next 6 years. I've lived here over 50 years.. California use to be a nice place to live. The Politics have actually ruined the way of life here unless you are one of "Them"..

Originally posted by Aeteocles: My California CCW is tied to a maximum of 3 specific weapons. This is a limitation set at the state level, if I recall. The Sheriff in each county has discretion on how and he issues permits. Where I live, the Sheriff restricts the 3 weapons further by having them inspected to ensure that their function have not been modified from their stock form. No trigger jobs. Aftermarket sights and grips are ok. You then have to qualify with each of the weapons listed on your CCW at issuance and at renewal.
Somewhat the same for my jurisdiction. The police chief (chief law enforcement officer) signs off on my permit after I demonstrate through a certificate that I have completed the approved class for renewal. However, I can add additional guns over the three with a $10 additional fee for the additonal permit for each additional three guns. I do not have to qualify with all weapons but they are all inspected.
