ATTENTION: AB 2103 has changed the California CCW laws. Beginning 1/1/19 each gun that is added to a CCW permit must be shot at a range for qualification. In order to add a gun to your CCW permit you must shoot it with an authorized instructor for qualification. NFI offers this qualification at no charge, if the student will pay their own range fees at the designated range. Normally these fees are $20.00 Register here and pay for this service. Please make sure you are on time to your qualification as the actual shooting portion is very brief and the instructors will leave the range as soon as they are finished. If you are more than 10 minutes late to your appointment you will need to reschedule. Range fees are non-refundable.
THIS IS NOT A CCW RENEWAL COURSE! THIS IS A FREE SERVICE TO ADD A HANDGUN TO YOUR EXISTING CCW. TO RENEW A CCW PLEASE REGISTER FOR A CCW RENEWAL COURSE ON THIS WEBSITE. Students will meet at the designated time at DOWN RANGE CHICO: 13407 Garner Ln, Chico, CA 95973. Students will be meeting with an NFI Instructor, not a Downrange Chico Instructor. This service is free except for range fees.
Welcome to the NFI add-a-gun qualification program! This qualification is done as a community service to any CCW holder who wants to add a gun to their existing CCW permit. This qualification will meet all new CA CCW laws. Students will need to review the packing list for this qualification and ensure proficiency with the firearm to pass a simple marksmanship qualification. Shooters must use the firearm safely. If a shooter can not use the firearm safely, cannot load and unload it, or demonstrates other errors in handling we recommend taking an Basic Defensive Pistol Course with either NFI or Down Range Chico. There will be no handgun training during this qualification. You can add as many guns as you want to your permit using this service on this one day.
If you are wondering if you can qualify with the firearm, or if you would like an NRA Instructor to coach you. Please contact Ted Lidie at 530-999-1822 to register for an NFI Basic Defensive Pistol Course. the cost is $75 and after 4 hours of coaching, your firearms marksmanship and handling will be greatly increased! You can also register for that class on this website. All NFI Basic Defensive Pistol courses are taught in Redding CA, at the Redding Gun Club. Downrange Chico also offers numerous classes.
