About the Event

This class is for Initial Permits only.  For Contra Costa and Solano Counties, this is the only class you need to get your 8-hours. For Napa, Sonoma, Alameda, Concord PD, and SFPD, this is the first 8-hours of your 16-hour requirement. You will need to take either CCW 2 or CCW 3 for your second 8-hours. 

This covers the state-mandated material for CCW permit holders:

  • Laws concerning firearms possession, storage, etc.
  • Firearm safety rules
  • Fundamentals of shooting
  • Loading and unloading procedures
  • Discussion of terminal ballistics and ammunition selection
  • Firearm and holster selection
  • Self defense law and post-shooting procedures
  • Live-fire qualification

Required Equipment:

  • Eye protection
  • Ear protection
  • Pistols to be listed on your permit with at least two magazines for each pistol
  • Outside-the-waistband holster for each pistol (see our blog post on selecting the proper holster)
  • At least 50 rounds of ammunition per pistol

You must have a holster for each pistol you intend to shoot; you will not be allowed to fire from the line without a holster. For those with Inside-the-Waistband, Appendix or SERPA holsters, you will NOT be allowed to draw a loaded pistol. You will draw and then load the pistol just prior to firing each stage.
