ive been looking at calguns for a long time and see all the bad posts about some guys doing ccw classes. i went to john taylors class in lincoln and thats the best thing i could have done. i was very surprised of everything that i learned and his knowledge. although i will continue to shoot and train as john suggested, he prepared me in many ways to ccw. id refer him to anybody. and by the way, i finally got my permit last week! :)

my instructor john said he teaches in 6 counties and they are all easy to get a permit in. but now we need to have all counties in cali go to shall issue. i also got the 32 state permit from john. that came long before my sacramento was issued. :)

Where will be the class and range time (for my wfe and she's only available on weekday)? And how much is for the 4 hrs class (for me, lol)?

I do have openings alomst every day of the week for CCW. The weekdays are best, as I have less students, and may be able to do a one-on-one, depending upon when your wife would like to attend. Email or call me for the available dates. The cost for initial CCW training (16 hours) is $175.00, and renewals are $75.00 (4 hours). The range is one mile from the classroom (In Lincoln, at the outdoor range).

Yes, you will learn everything that you need to know. You will be well prepared and qualified to CCW, after my class.

I just went through Johnís class this weekend. If you need to know it he's teaches it. If you ask he answers it. He's very good at making sure you understand everything. He's NOT a chest pumping "I've seen it, done it bad ***" egotistical teacher. He's a regular guy. Thank you John, I learned a lot.

Thank you John for accomodating my wife last wed and yesterday. I think she have now the idea of gun safety and reason why i want her to get a ccw. She keep telling me and her (trusted) friends what she learn on your class. And she said that her friends are now planning to start the process (application). I told her that they can start the class while waiting for the appointment. Although its a waste of money if they get denied. But i never heard any new ccw applicants denied here in sacramento.
And for me cancel my schedule for tommorow (4 hrs. class). I will give you a call within 2 weeks after i got my new LC9.

Sure, it was great having her in the class. She's a great learner. I know she was pretty tired on day 1, after working all night. Give me a call or email when you wish to reschedule your renewal.

I went to one of Johns CCW classes this last week. The class was well laid out with plenty of pertinate information as well as live fire exercises. John was absolutely profesional and I would highly recommend his class room if your in need of any firearms training.

I took the class from John last weekend and not only was it informative, it was also a lot of fun. John is a very knowledgable instructor and makes things fun and easy to understand. The qualifying part was literally a blast, but my fingers are still sore from reloading magazines so often.

Also, I think John's pricing is the best around for CalGunners for what you get. No extra fees for extra guns, like a lot of the instructors do. Also, I'd much rather drive up to Lincoln than all the way out to Sac Valley. Heck, there's even a nice little bar next door with a cute bartender that serves a great burger.

Thanks John! My permit arrived today!

Does the shall issue go for the people inside the city or just the rural folks?

No. Nice thought though. Just not too catchy for my screen name. :cool:

NorCalCCWinstructor
08-30-2011, 9:47 PM
The "shall issue" is for any resident of Sacramento County. City residents also. But you must apply at the S.O. Of course, issuance is still "discretional". You must be free of certain dis-qualifiers. In the absence of dis-qualifiers, personal protection or self defense shall constitute good cause. This was the big hurdle, until last November.

NorCalCCWinstructor

Jason,

Day 1 is all classroom and weapon inspections/takedowns. Day 2 is the very next day, all at the range. However, if you need to split up the 2 days, that is acceptable.

Thanks

What are the SPECIFIC California CCW range requirements?

What are the SPECIFIC California CCW range requirements?

The short answer is: There are none. Range requirements are set by local LEA and/or instructor.

(E)(i)For new license applicants, the course of training may be any course acceptable to the licensing authority, shall not exceed 16 hours, and shall include instruction on at least firearm safety and the law regarding the permissible use of a firearm. Notwithstanding this clause, the licensing authority may require a community college course certified by the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training, up to a maximum of 24 hours, but only if required uniformly of all license applicants without exception.

Hey John I just set a appointment for August. Is it too soon to take the training? When is the best time to take it?

No, it's not too soon at all. If you have no background questions, I would take it now, and keep checking the SCSO website, in case there are cancellations. If you do happen to find a cancellation, do not take one, unless it is more than 2 weeks away, so that they have time to begin your background investigation. Otherwise, they may call you and inform you that you have to reschedule. I've had some students with appointments a year out, and they were in for their interview 2 weeks later, as they checked (often) for cancellations. I have some openings for this weekend (Sat/Sun), and also for next Tues/Wed, and the following Fri/Sat.

You can book an appointment with me via my website at http://www.besthandguntraining.com

The "best times" are during the weekday, with less students.

If you have any questions, you can email me directly at john@besthandguntraining.com

You could also try calling me at (916) 295-8489, but I am always instructing some kind of gun training, and am harder to reach on the phone.

Thanks,

John is a great instructor!! His style is safety oriented, fluid, clear, precise, and focused. Take advantage of this deal. Nuff said.

Already pointed 1 friend his way, a coworker and her husband and 2 of my relatives are getting ready to enroll. You CAN'T ask for a better instructor and class. I will be going back for addition/changes in the future as well.

Got any referral deals John? =P I kid I kid.

Get the street tacos next door for lunch as well, simply amazing and priced well.

Thanks for the referrals guys (and gals)! As we may see more new instructors getting into this field of CCW instruction, and some with very little experience themselves, it is rather important to get the training that you deserve. I received a call recently that there is somebody attempting to instruct an initial CCW class for about $50. BEWARE~ you get what you pay for (as I have been stressing for many years). I am an advocate for more instructors that will be instructing CCW classes (as long as they have the experience).

i took John's new ccw class on 10/7 and was very impressed. He prepared me for exactly what was going to happen in my interview and I was so ready that the interviewer told me that I was getting a "gold star for preparedness" for that day.

Best Handgun Training is excellent.

I will say that qualifying with a Derringer at 10 yards away is not impossible, but rather difficult for most. Placer County does not allow any Derringer on a permit, but other counties do. I do not recommend considering a Derringer for your LTC, because the chances of qualifying are rather slim. There are many other conceal carry options out there. But, if you do not reside in Placer, you are certainly welcome to attempt to qualify with your Derringer. :)

I took the 16hr Initial CCW course with John and Wes this Sun. Got the Calguns discount and had a good time. 2 other guys were doing their initial for Placer County and we were all mixed in with about 7 other guys doing their CCW renewals. Great info from John and Wes detailing the CCW process for the various counties along with their own experiences. Makes me want to relocate to El Dorado :D

I did wish the shooting range portion was a little bit longer, but I guess the guys renewing wanted to get out of there (even though most of them could've used the practice ). Some of the targets I saw made me question how they originally qualified...
