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 eight hours long.
Range Session: Ten rounds inside the 9-ring of 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. No warm-ups prior to initial qualification attempt.
Additional marksmanship coaching is available after your initial qualification attempt and, if you wish, you may make a second attempt after that. NOTE: No spectators, children, or pets are permitted in any live-fire class. Couples and buddies qualify at separate stations.

Demos that are better done in person will take place throughout the range session.
