California CCW New Issue
Renewal Classes & Range Sessions

California gun laws that have been enacted are considered restrictive compared to other US state laws. As a “May Issue” state the issuance of a permit is left entirely up to the discretion of the local sheriff. This can range from no issue in mostly urban counties to “shall Issue” in rural counties. Restrictions can be placed on a permit limiting where it can be used. Enforcement of these laws varies with rural counties being more lenient and urban counties strictly enforcing all firearms laws. California law also requires all guns to be registered.

What to expect from our classes  

New issue lecture session is not to exceed 16 hours. Lecture & discussion time will greatly depend on your level of experience with both shooting and in security or law professions. No experience is required.

Range sessions are typically completed in 50 rounds per firearm and varying distances. We need to see safety, control, knowledge and confidence with all of your firearms. Distances for qualifications are 15 yards and closer.

If you need a new issue class please contact us to make arrangements. Classes are set on an as-needed basis. We will need to know the issuing agency is and what your experience is with firearms and/or security.

DO NOT call and ask how to get a CCW Permit, we do not issue permits nor do we help anyone to attain them. We provide classes and training to those that have been approved. Please contact your local agency to determine how to proceed with an application.

Our renewal range qualification is the same. Lecture and discussion portion is to be a minimum of 4 hours. This will not only include firearm safety but also a recap of the last 2 years and discussion of any situations or questions that may have come up. We will also review current laws to be sure you are 100% up to date.

If you are coming up on a renewal, please contat us at least 60 days in advance. This will allow enough time for range, class and your agency to process the paperwork.

We may also be able to provide classes for your agency as well, please enquire with your issuing agency. It is the issuing agencies requirement to inform you where to go to received approved training. If would like us to contact your issuing agency to confirm our training will meet their requirements please contact us.
