CCW & NRA Training
Since 2005, we have been offering firearms instruction to individuals, companies, and organizations in the Inland Empire. We have successfully taught thousands of men, women, and children, the fundamentals of safe firearm handling and have instilled in them, traits of responsible gun ownership. We have advocated for the protection of our 2nd Amendment Rights and empowered countless women and first-time shooters along the way.
We know there are many instructors to choose from but believe you won't find a more comprehensive method of instruction anywhere else. We did not develop the instruction; it's been around for years in a basic format, however, we have added to it, several details and an in-depth explanation as to why our methods work. Ours are based on science. While other instructors will tell you to do something without explanation, we'll be the ones to tell you WHY we ask you to do it. What's more is that we prove our methods work during every single class with our students who are amazed at their own results.
Trigger control, along with other skills, is key to the bullet flying straight and to the precise area of the target you intend to hit. Many of our students, primarily those with no firearms experience, are able to impact the target at the bulls-eye and then follow up with the second round going through the first hole! Impossible?
Come shoot with us and find out how you can do it too!
We now offer Firearm Safety Certificate Tests at our retail location by appointment only.

Firearm Safety Certificate Information
In order to purchase a firearm in the state of California, you must obtain a Firearms Safety Certificate (FSC) from a DOJ Certified Instructor.
To obtain an FSC, you must take the DOJ written test and receive a passing score of at least 75% (the information needed to pass the test is contained in the study guide linked below). An FSC is valid for five years from the date of issuance. If your FSC is lost, stolen or destroyed, a replacement may be obtained from the DOJ Certified Instructor who issued your original FSC.
The fee for taking the FSC test and being issued an FSC is twenty-five dollars ($25). The fee entitles the applicant to take the test twice if necessary.

The Firearm Safety Certificate Law
California Penal Code sections 26840, 26850, and 26860, state that no dealer may deliver a firearm unless the person receiving the firearm presents to the dealer a valid firearm safety certificate and no firearms dealer may deliver a firearm unless the recipient performs a safe handling demonstration with that firearm. The law exempts certain categories of individuals from the FSC and safe handling demonstration requirements.
Pursuant to Penal Code section 31610, it is the intent of the Legislature in enacting these laws to require that persons who obtain firearms have a basic familiarity with those firearms, including, but not limited to, the safe handling and storage of those firearms.
