This CCW class is our two-day, 16 hour, premium course which teaches the skills necessary to safely carry a concealed firearm in public.  This course includes live-fire range training from the holster and judgmental training on our Laser Shot Sim Range Simulator.  Students will receive the following books A copy of the latest edition of "California Gun Laws", a copy of "The Law of Self Defense" and a copy of the "Traveler's Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States".  


Since 2006, we have assisted in the application process, interview preparation, and training for thousands of successful California CCW holders, including for the following counties: 


Napa, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Solano, Sonoma, Alameda, Calaveras, Amador, El Dorado, City of Napa, Yolo, Placer, San Mateo and Nevada Counties.

For Solano county residents, you must apply first and receive approval from the Solano County Sheriff, then enroll in the class.  Apply online at:

Solano County CCW License Application


For all other counties, applicants may apply either before or immediately after the class at their respective Sheriff’s office. Residents who live within the City limits of Napa, will apply at the Napa Police Department. All other Napa county residents should apply at the Napa County Sheriff’s office.


NOTE:  CONTRA COSTA APPLICANTS:  You must attend a mandatory 8 hour class, including a live-fire qualification shoot, at the Contra Costa Sheriff's Office upon approval of your application.  However, if you would like to improve your firearms safety and shooting ability,  be better educated in the laws regarding the use of deadly force,  and take advantage of our assistance with completing your application package, we invite you to enroll in our class, too.  

The course covers outdoor defensive shooting skills, safely drawing a firearm from a holster, combat reloads, malfunction clearance, accurate aimed fire, point shooting, threats from behind, firearm concealment, law enforcement contact procedures, the legal aspects, and much more.


Completion of this course, however, does not guarantee that you will be issued a California CCW permit, as the decision on your eligibility is made by the Sheriff or Police Chief in the county or city in which you live. Upon completion of this class, our Training Team is available to you as a resource (at no additional charge) to guide you through the application process, including how to put your application packet together and articulate your written “good cause” statement. 


Completion of this course provides sufficient proof of training for the Arizona, Florida, Virginia and Utah non-resident CCW permits, too.  These non-resident permits are available, by mail, to law-abiding California residents and together are recognized in these 33 states outside of California:

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming.


Utah, Arizona, Florida, and Virgina are “shall issue” to those applicants who clear the required background check, and application is done by mail.  Instructions are provided for all four states and applications for the Utah and Arizona permits are provided and completed during the class.

Fingerprinting services are available at the class for a modest fee of $20 per card.  If you want both Utah (needs 1 card) and Arizona (needs 2 cards), you will need to bring $60 cash.

Course fee includes all range fees, targets, and Certificate of Training.  Complimentary bottled water, coffee and donuts are provided.




• Handgun(s) - Revolver or semiautomatic (full-size or compact, no tiny pocket pistols please). Contra Costa County does not allow 1911 type of guns on the permits they issue.  Most counties will approve you for up to three guns, with the exception of Contra Costa (max. 2 guns) and Alameda (one gun) for your initial CCW permit.  Please bring all guns you want on your permit to first day of class.


• Twin magazine belt carrier and three magazines (minimum) or one speed-loaders if using a revolver.
