Change to Orange's CCW Policy?
YES! And it is good news (mostly).
A memo went out to certified CCW trainers across Orange County spelling out the changes. OCGO wanted to make sure you saw the news.
The Sheriff's memo reads:
Effective immediately, the OCSD CCW Licensing Unit will be implementing the following changes:
Modifications are allowed for CCW listed handguns so long as the gun and all parts/modifications 
are legal in the State of California
.  All previous restrictions on modifications to slides, triggers, cerokote, etc. can be disregarded.  
See DOJ Guidelines for further info.
  • The responsibility for the legality of firearm and it’s parts/accessories lies solely with the owner/applicant.
  • Any violations or failure to adhere to state laws/regulations will result in immediate suspension and/or revocation of license.
-Max capacity restriction of 10 rounds for magazines still applies.
Listed handguns must still be concealable on one’s person or reasonably sized bag/purse. 
The gun must be registered in the State of California.
  • Can be registered to the applicant or spouse/domestic partner.
  • Must be DROS (FFL A&D check outs are not acceptable).
*Important Note:
 Please advise your clients that just because a modification is allowed, does not mean it is recommended.  Should they have the unfortunate need to discharge their handgun, they may have to explain in criminal/civil court why the weapon was illegally modified or had inappropriate text, logos, pictures, design, etc.
OCGO's Thoughts:
Generally good news! However, we absolutely do not agree with the ban on carrying normal capacity magazines in your carry gun that is being forced by the Sheriff Barnes. It is not illegal to posses magazines that hold more than 10 rounds and therefore it is not illegal to carry them in a carry gun.
San Diego and Riverside county both allow normal capacity magazine.
If your CCW is taken away from you because you are "caught" with a normal capacity magazine in your carry gun, please contact us immediately. Taking CCWs away from sane, trained, law-abiding citizens is not being the Second Amendment friendly, CCW friendly sheriff that Don Barnes told us he would be when we endorsed him for election.
Thank you,
-OCGO Board

JT Schmidt in Anaheim
we are hosting the second section of a 4 part series called
How To Be A Second Amendment Activist
  • Even if you missed the first one, you can attend the other 3!
  • Free to all to attend, members and non-members are welcome
  • Appetizers will be served (full dinners are available for purchase)
  • There will be some general information given at the beginning and then we will start the first part of a 4 part seminar
  • The seminar, How To Be A Second Amendment Activist, will teach you how to be an effective activist to help change public policy. If you are tired of feeling helpless while laws get changed around you...if you are tired of being told to send more emails and call your legislators...then this is the seminar for you.
  • The seminar series will cover real world examples of things you can do to be effective in the world of politics and specifically Second Amendment issues. Examples, step-by-step instructions, statistics, strategies, and suggestions will all be given. This will be low on theory and high on action-items.
  • The seminar is 4 parts and will run at our January, February, March, and April monthly meetings. They are all stand-alone seminars and if you attend all 4, you will get a certificate of recognition!
  • Our monthly meeting typically falls on the third Thursday of the month and we will do all we can to keep that consistent throughout 2020. This month it is the 4th Thursday.
Activism isn't a spectator sport. We will teach you what to do and why. Additional questions? Email us at
