It is and has been for quite some time nearly impossible to get a CCW IN San Diego.
Now it looks like that may change.
As a result of Peruta v. San Diego.
News is San Diego Sheriff will not seek 9th Circuit en banc in Peruta right to carry case.
That being said this is what is still up on their CCW page
With regard to the recent 127-page opinion in Peruta v. San Diego, proffered by the 9th Circuit, we are in the process of reviewing and studying the decision, as well as conferring with Legal Counsel.
We will continue with existing procedures and all CCW applications will be handled by appointment only.
The Peruta v. San Diego is interesting because Drake v. Jerejian is an appeal from a Third Circuit decision upholding New Jersey’s carry licensing system, under which almost no-one is ever issued in a permit.
So if San Diego's ban gets over turned are their any implications for the rest of CA and the rest of the US?

UPDATE: This is what is now up on the site.
So in the future responsible law abiding citizens of San Diego county might actually be able to get CCWs.
Members of the public wishing to obtain a CCW under the standards articulated by the Ninth Circuit should be aware that the decision has not yet become final.
Federal court rules prescribe a period of time which must elapse before the case is remanded to the District Court for further proceedings.
In order to accommodate, and expedite, the large numbers of anticipated applications, the Sheriff’s Department is revising the process for issuing CCW permits. Anyone wanting to apply for a CCW may submit an application either by mail at P.O. Box 939062, San Diego CA 92193-9062, or in person at 9621 Ridgehaven Court, San Diego, CA 92123.
Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received. All applications received that meet the current “good cause” standard will be contacted by a licensing staff member with instructions on how to complete the process.
Applications that seek a CCW permit under the self-defense standard set forth in Peruta v. County of San Diego will be processed in the order they were received should the decision of the Ninth Circuit become final. Once the decision becomes final, applicants will be contacted by the Sheriff’s Licensing Division with instructions on how to complete the process.
I find this to be quite interesting. Rarely do we see freedoms returned to citizens that have once been revoked. Its good to see these changes happening here. Hopefully it will set some sorts of president in other counties in CA as well as other states.
