The Sheriff may issue a concealed weapons license to law-abiding residents of Solano County who is not prohibited from possessing, owning, or purchasing a firearm capable of being concealed upon his or her person, and comply with the provision of Penal Code Section §26150(a).

In accordance to PC §26150(a), and subject to department procedures, residents of Solano County may submit an application to the Sheriff’s CCW Coordinator.

Applications will be individually investigated.   An applicant interview may be required as part of this investigation.

Applicants should be reminded that all information disclosed in the application may be subject to public disclosure.

Applicants are encouraged to read the application packet in its entirety.  Pay special attention to the following sections:

  1. Section 4 – CCW License Conditions and Restrictions
  2. Section 5 – Applicable California Penal Code Sections
  3. Section 6 – Agreement to Restriction and to Hold Harmless
  4. Page 12-13 – Firearms Prohibiting Categories

The initial application process consists of a series of steps.  These steps are defined in the instruction sheet available on this webpage.  Application processing times vary.  

The Sheriff may place a restriction on any license that the Sheriff deems warranted.  The restriction/s may include the time, place, manner, and circumstances under which the licensee may carry the weapon.

The possession of a license to carry a concealed weapon is a privilege, not a right, and as such is subject to revocation whenever deemed necessary by either the Sheriff or the California Attorney General's Office.

The possession of a license to carry a concealed weapon does not exempt any individual from criminal prosecution or civil liability, other than the act of carrying the specific firearm within the State of California.

The issuance of a license to carry a concealed weapon does not excuse or justify any behavior that might otherwise be a violation of any law pertaining to weapons.

You may apply by utilizing the current state application form.  This form, as well as application instructions, is available on this webpage.  For questions not answered in the instructions, please contact the CCW Coordinator, at 707-784-7034 during normal business hours.  Inquiries can also be sent to [email protected] .
