YUBA COUNTY CCW PERMITS
Obtaining a CCW (carry concealed weapons) permit in Northern CA is much easier than many bay area and Southern
CA counties. It is each Sheriff's policy which dictates whether you are able to receive a CCW, or not. The state of
CA requires that each applicant shall have good cause. Many Sheriff's in CA have determined that "good cause" shall
be personal protection or self defense. This is the case with Yuba County Sheriff Wendell Anderson.
Yuba County CCW permits and issuance criteria, training requirements and other information can be found on
this page with Best Handgun Training, as well as the link below, to the Yuba County Sheriff's Department.
You must schedule an appointment directly with the Yuba County Sheriff Department, CCW division. You shall
demonstrate good moral character, prove that you are an outstanding resident of Yuba County, and be prepared
to undergo a thorough and complete background check.
Upon approval of your Yuba County CCW application, you will be required to complete at least an 8 hour
CCW training (if you have not done so yet), including demonstrating the ability to safely (and proficiently)
handle and use the handguns (up to 3) to be on your permit, and you must "qualify with each weapon to be on
your permit, by specific serial number. The gun(s) must be registered to you or a spouse or registered
Do yourself a huge favor, and take the BEST training course available, and do not allow any shortcuts when
taking this training. You shouldn't consider attending a fly by night course for half of the price of what
professional instructors charge. You get what you pay for.
In CA, unfortunately, it is a "privilege" and not a right to be issued a CCW. Training is very important, and
selecting the best instructor should be a very important factor, when you will be carrying a concealed weapon
everyday. Regardless of the number of days, or how long the training is, or how far away the training center is, it
is very crucial to know the laws of the state of CA, and particularly knowing the laws when it comes down to self
defense, and where you are not allowed to carry weapons, etc., rather than just demonstrating that you can
shoot a gun at a range.
At BEST Handgun Training, you will walk away with a tremendous amount of knowledge, and you will be well
prepared to carry concealed weapons.
