SF/South Bay Area multi-state CCW/Defensive Pistol Course
A brief overview of some of the course topics are:
Concealed Carry Safety and the Defensive Mindset
Components Essential for Lawful Self Defense
Strategies for Personal Safety Outside the Home
Presenting the Pistol from a Holster
Utilizing Cover and Concealment
Defensive Shooting Fundamentals & Skills
Engaging Multiple Targets
The class is compromised of classroom time as well as range time.
This class is an excellent opportunity for anyone (even if you do not wish to obtain a CCW at this time) who would like to actually receive instruction and be able to shoot after drawing from a holster, shoot while moving, engage multiple targets and use cover and concealment while shooting from different positions.
There are not many places in the Bay area which will allow you to do any of the above. We have explicit permission as an approved instructor to allow this during our classes here.
By obtaining the AZ, FL and OR licenses you will be able to legally carry in 35 states including Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Idaho and New Mexico. These 35 states compromise almost 70% of the US.
Florida & Arizona licenses can be obtained completely via mail. We will be providing the Arizona & Florida carry license application packets and fingerprint cards to all students and will go through the entire process of filling them out during the class.
Oregon must be submitted in person. There is, however, a very pro 2nd amendment Sheriff from Oregon (Sheriff Glen Palmer), who does visit California several times a year and provides CA residents with the opportunity to apply through him without having to visit Oregon. The Oregon license will not gain you any states other than Oregon itself. If you do not plan on visiting Oregon you need not apply for this license.
Required Equipment for the class is as follows:
Handgun (You are encouraged to bring multiple handguns if you own them)
Holster (Strong Side – Inside or Outside the Waistband)
Magazines (At least two magazines for your handgun)
Eye & Ear Protection
Minimum of 100 rounds of ammo (We should have the opportunity to shoot many more than 100 rounds, but that would be the minimum needed to go through the drills required. Bring as much ammo as you have.)
Lunch (You can bring your lunch or you can purchase lunch at the grill they have at the venue. We will provide water, soda, etc.)
Pen and Paper
Optional, but recommended:
The fees paid directly to the states for the Concealed Carry Licenses you wish to apply for are as follows:
Florida – $117 – 7 years
Arizona – $60 – 5 years
Oregon – $65 – 4 years
The total list of the 35 states (currently) you can legally carry in after obtaining these 3 licenses is:
