We now offer CCW training courses to meet Penal Code 26165 and SB2 stated below:

  1. For new license applicants, the course of training for issuance of a new license under Section PC 26165 that meets all of the following criteria:
  2. The course shall be 16 hours in length.
  3. The course shall include instruction on mental health, firearm safety, firearm handling, shooting technique, and laws regarding the permissible use of a firearm.
  4. The course shall include live-fire shooting exercises on a firing range and shall include a demonstration by the applicant of safe handling of, and shooting proficiency with, each firearm that the applicant is applying to be licensed to carry.

Under SB2 renewal courses must be a minimum of 8 hours.

We also do not conduct group classes!

We train one-on-one for a better outcome!


Here is the course we offer for INITIAL:

The classroom part will be in my office in Pleasant Hill. Then we will use the Richmond Rod & Gun Club to complete the live fire requirement. The complete cost is $420.00. You supply the appropriate firearm, ammo, holster, ear and eye protection. Ammunition must be factory fresh, either FMJ or JHP, and no reloads. 9MM 115 Grain is recommended due to lower recoil and better control. No single-action pistols, such as 1911 style, are allowed in Contra Costa County. For concealed carry Glock 26 or Glock 19 are recommended. If you join the Glock Sport Shooting Foundation they will send you a "Pistol Coupon" each year that allows you to buy a Gen3 Glock at a very reduced price from LCAction in San Jose!

8-Hour RENEWALS are $220.00.


Here’s the process for the Contra Costa County Sheriff: (Contact other Agencies as applicable for their specific requirements!)




It is always better not to mix operating systems on CCW firearms. If you like Glocks, stick with Glocks. If you like Sigs, stick with Sigs. Try to put two firearms on the CCW permit so you always have a backup.

Carry what you train with!
