More Good Stuff

Picture of the FSC booklet   Firearms Safety Certificate

We offer the FSC testing and certificate immediately following our New Shooter I class (as it happens, an entire hour of great test prep all by itself). 

Alternative: get it done in a dedicated test session. This link takes you to our page with a full range of study materials prepared by the California Department of Justice, Bureau of Firearms.

Either way, it's $25 and takes about half an hour.

FSC  CCW Application Assistance

Before setting up your initial CCW or CCW Renewal class it would be smart to get your application in to, and approved by, your local Sheriff. The process can vary by county (see Links for different county connections) but all cases involve filling out an application and submitting it with payment. Many counties use an online application, which can be tricky without a computer. Give us a call if you want a hand. (We do charge $20 for this, mostly so we don't get swamped.)
