ATTN: Beginning 1/1/19, California law has changed to require a CCW holder or student shoot all guns that are or will be listed on a CCW permit. This means that on your range date for an initial CCW class or CCW Renewal, you must bring all guns listed on your permit and the cartridges listed in each individual class packing list. In addition, anytime a CCW holder adds a gun to their permit, it must be qualified on a range with a certified instructor.
- *Student must pay applicable range fees-charged by the range.

All handguns to be listed on your CCW permit.
You will need an outside the waistband hip holster for your strong side (right or left depending on which hand you shoot with) for each gun. If you have a "universal holster" that fits all three of your guns, that will be fine. If you do not have a holster, you can use one of ours to train with. Please google the term "Outside the Waistband Hip Holster" if you need some info on this piece of equipment.
