CA 8 Hour CCW Course

This course will satisfy 8 Hours of training for Calaveras, Contra Costa, Solano, Sutter, Trinity, or Yolo County to obtain a California concealed carry weapons permit. If your county requires 16 hours of training, you will also need to take the NRA Basic Pistol Course prior to this class. Counties requiring 16 hours of training include: Napa, Sacramento, and Shasta.

*You must be a resident of one of the listed Counties.

** The county you live in will determine if you require an 8 hour or a 16-hour course.

If you need the 16 Hour CCW Training Course, please sign up ONLY for the NRA Basic Pistol Course. There will be a checkbox to select indicating you are taking the course for the 16 Hour CCW requirement.

Here is a list of states that currently recognize a California concealed carry weapons permit. (25 states as of February 2020)

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

*** Although these states will recognize a California Permit - The State of California says the permit is only valid in the State of California. Because of this fact, whenever you are outside the State of California and you have another permit that is valid in the state you are visiting, use the other permit.

We supply targets and pay range fees.


CCW Courses are not meant to teach you how to shoot.

If you are not comfortable with your firearm, please take a Basic Firearm Course first!

Either Handgun I (HG1) or NRA Basic Pistol
