Black Oak Training is a firearms-safety training school in Butte County, California. We provide training and qualification for Butte County concealed-carry permits along with a number of NRA classes. Our classes cater to individuals who are serious about learning how to defend their own and others' lives.

We don't teach you how to pass a test. We teach you how to survive an attack.

Our CCW course meets all requirements for Butte County and California. We also offer an optional Intermediate CCW/Tactical session for those who want more.

We keep our classes small so that each client can get the necessary training to make him or her safe, comfortable, competent, and capable in his or her new firearm-handling skills.

We are recruiters for Second Call Defense, an NRA-approved membership program that offers immediate legal and financial support in addition to training for those who carry firearms for self-defense. (If you carry and aren't yet a member of Second Call Defense, you really might want to rethink your strategy.)

We welcome your inquiries about our training. In fact, we'll be happy to assist with questions concerning CCWs, NRA classes, and Second Call in general.
