    Did I miss something ?

    I thought CA was still a may issue state and goes county to county? I was listening to 105.1 in Fresno and there was a company advertising ccw courses. Is there a req now for a ccw course cert to be considered for a lic or are they just doing the class for money sake?

    It may be they were advertising the class for the UT permit, which is popular there because it is of use to CA residents who travel to other states.

    May issue or 'discretionary' issuance means that it is up to the local police chief and county sheriffs whether they will issue licenses or not. California is seperated into 58 counties and each one of them has it's own policy on who they will issue to, creating a map that divides rural conservative areas from coastal and metropolitan ones.

    Fresno county will issue to regular people, so it stands to figure that you might hear such an advertisment promoting a mandatory training class in that area.
