hi i am new to this site i saw it in the local paper,i have looked at the map of ca and the counties.my question is stan county and merced county have populations of over 200,000,from what i have been reading and looking up is the counties have to have less then 200,000,to open carry. i also have my own bussness which i carry cash on a daily bases of $800 to $1500. I have thought of going through the class to try and get a CCW permit. If i am able to open carry i have a crew cab truck with no shell would i be able to have it on the passenger seat.This site is great wish i knew about it sooner
