Thank you so much everyone for your help. Hickok: if I’m given a restricted one , can I file for carry amendment on the spot or what would the process look like?
As he said it won’t be restricted since the SC said you can’t do administrative restrictions anymore and only two types are granted, either premise or concealed carry.
It’s hard to say what the process is because every county is handling it differently. If you do not have a CCW currently as of 9/1/2022 you will need the enhanced training of 16 hours of seat time and 2 hours of live fire training. Most counties are making you take the training before applying but a few let you get it while going through the process.
I suggest you get familiar with the CCIA. It seems Orange County allows you to do it in process but you already applied.
I do not see anything about upgrading from premise to carry on their web site only about new applications. They do have the new CCIA parameters listed on the application process but the question is what did they use as a cut off. It’s best to call or email them to get the answers you seek unless you know someone that went through this process at a very similar timeframe as you. Your permit should say premise or concealed carry but I’ve never seen one from Orange County so I could be wrong. So much is county specific.
Review the requirements for you to submit an application.
