All about getting your first CCW


Class Session: Covers safety, nomenclature, the law, concealment issues and options, situational awareness, and all other topics mandated by recent changes in California law. Concludes with a written exam. You must correctly answer all questions on this exam. No firearms or ammo in class. Lesson materials provided.

We apologize for the price hike since December 2023. It is, again, the outcome of changes in California law that require this class to be sixteen hours long.

Need an assist with your online CCW application? No scanner? No connectivity? Working on a mobile phone only? We can help. Call or text: 530-624-1562.

Range Session: Ten rounds into a regular CCW target with a minimum of eight hits on target, distance 21'. No scopes or lasers. All qualification shooting is done from the bench. Personalized marksmanship coaching throughout. NOTE: No spectators, children, or pets are permitted in any live-fire class. Couples and buddies qualify at separate stations.
