Iron Sights is one of the better san diego area ranges and right in your area.

You should be able to read the booklet and take the quiz at any local gun shop.

To my knowledge, anywhere that sells handguns will be able to give you an HSC. It takes all of ten minutes.

Ironsights has the capability to admin the test. They have a great range and staff too.

You could always download the study guide for free from the DOJ's website.

IMO if you have been around guns and understand the cardinal rules of gun safety, and can discern which kind of situations can get you into legal trouble, or which SOP's can result in a negligent discharge, etc., then you will be able to pass the test. I didn't study and passed 100%.

That being said, you should be able to take the test anywhere they sell handguns. Call up the local stores near you and ask them, before heading over! You can kill two birds with one stone by comparing the prices in store against prices online :)

I got the study booklet and took the test right at Iron Sights.

Good people, reasonable prices.

Not only that, but they'll laminate the card for you as well. I took my test at Turner's where I bought my handgun, and Iron Sights still laminated my card for me!
