Initial CCW Course (applying for the first time)
We teach in Orange, Ventura, San Diego, and Los Angeles Counties as our classes are recognized as approved training for all four county sheriffs. We invite you to join us at either location no matter the county where you reside because the class will be accepted in all three. Please contact us if you have questions as to where in each county the class will take place. Otherwise, you may not receive an email with final details of the classroom location and instructions until a day or two before class because we use a few different locations depending on the class size. You will however receive an email by the night before the course date.
Adding a Gun to Your CCW License
If you already have a California CCW issued by the Orange County Sheriff, they will allow an unlimited number of handguns to be added to your license as long as they are registered under your name. This can be done at any time for Orange County licensees. Ventura County only allows the addition of firearms during the time of your CCW renewal.
If you want to add another handgun to your CCW license from Orange County, all that is required is to pass a live fire qualification with that handgun consisting of shooting 20 rounds (10 rounds at 5 yards and 10 rounds at 7 yards). We will then sign off a qualification certificate for you which you will upload to the OCSD website along with filling out their amendment form. From that point, you can set an appointment with the OCSD to pick up your new license and pay the $11 fee because they will need to reprint it with your new gun(s) listed. For qualifying add-on firearms, we charge $20 per every 2 guns. That rate is assuming that we’re already at the range teaching. Please refer to our schedule of the next classes and email us to see if we can fit you in with our range time. If you want to qualify new guns outside of our public class time, there will be additional fees and you may be required to pay your own lane fee to the range. Please contact us for details as this website is not set-up to accept payments for gun add-ons.
Upcoming All-Day Saturday Classes
Times are listed below for the next accelerated classes. The starting and ending times vary according to when the range time is available on that particular day. Unless otherwise noted, the optional multi-state permit instruction begins one hour earlier than the listed times. If noted, sometimes that portion will be taught after the California CCW portion.
*Please note. Due to COVID-19 safety measures, the Ventura County Sheriff CCW Unit is only accepting applications by appointment only. The Orange County Sheriff CCW Unit is processing initial licenses by video interview and renewals by email. We encourage you to go forward with your classes since we anticipate a sizable backlog once government offices completely open and they try to process the demand caused by new CCW applicants.
Need a Class Right Away?
Most weeks we can customize a private class at your home or office anywhere in Orange, L.A., San Diego, or Ventura Counties. Starting at $500 per person (rates are reduced for multiple students attending and increased if done over more than one day). Contact us for a quote.
