If you are here, it is because you have taken it upon yourself to make Orange County a safer place by seeking a CCW permit. There is no question that the initial application process in Orange County is a long and arduous process (current wait times for initial appointments are about three months). But by taking the time to learn about what it takes to get a CCW in Orange County on the front end, you can help reduce any delays you may experience during the application process. 

First, we encourage you to review CRPA’s comprehensive Orange County CCW Application Guide, which covers in detail each stage of the application process. You can view this guide for free at http://crpa.org/helpfulguides/.

As stated in the guide, if you still have questions about the process or need help in completing the application, you should send an email to contact@crpa.org.
