FRESNO  AND SURROUNDING COUNTY 8 HOUR CALIFORNIA CCW COURSE. Welcome to the convenient and effective way to obtain your required CCW training. This training meets the required CCW training in the following Counties: Fresno, (also City of Fresno), Tulare,  Madera, and San Benito.

ATTENTION: For your convenience we will meet at the Fresno Rifle and Pistol Club, 15687 Auberry Rd, Clovis, CA 93619, at 9:00 AM. At this time we will do the mandated qualification  with your  firearms that will be included on your permit. You will need 50 cartridges (County of Fresno and all others) or 100 cartridges (City of Fresno). To qualify you must fire one magazine or cylinder per firearm that will be included on your permit, as well as fire the minimum amount of cartridges. For example, if you have one firearm, you will shoot it 50 times.  If you have two firearms you may shoot each 25 times.    This easy process will take less than three hours and allows you to complete this important portion of the class before we convene in the classroom at Sportsman's Warehouse.
