Default Good Websites with Practice Tests?

Iím hoping to take the safety certification test soon, but was wondering if anyone might know of any sites (or even apps) with practice tests? Iíve seen a few that were pretty bad, so Iím hoping there are a few that can help me get ready.

Read the guide ( 2 or 3 times if you are new to firearms ) and just take the test. It's not hard, most of it is common sense.

If you fail this test, you have to report to a police counter within 30 days and turn-in any firearms you may have acquired up to that point.

Yea if you read the guide and still fail the test, I think you shouldn't get a firearm.

The questions are literally like "which of the following is the safest direction to point a gun? A)babies head B) Expensive and irreplaceable antique C)Down range at designated target with proper backstop.

Thanks for the replies guys. Iíll probably have to re-read it again, but everyone Iíve talked to said itís really just common sense.

Sadly, Iíve seen some online quizzes that ask a multiple-choice style question, but give the possible answers as ďtrue or falseĒ

Just take the test. If you fail please use the money to take a beginners safety class instead of buying a gun.

I took my fsc test cold with no practice, and got 30/30. With the exception of a couple of questions they are all common sense.

Same here. When they first required the test, the hardest part was paying the state more money for their BS agenda. Passed 30/30 cold and that's not bragging, the test is really that simple.

No practice needed, just know the policy on 1 handgun every 30 days and that it doesnt apply to rifles. Thats probably about the only tricky one if youre not aware of the law

Test is very simple. But that's assuming some level of firearms knowledge or experience. I can easily see some guy off the street who's never touched a gun, failing it.

I got the question with the felony wrong because I was overthinking and assuming they can get their record expunged after a period of time, so the answer was convicted felons can not own or use a firearm.

So I went for it, and it was just as everyone said: common sense.

I took mine last Saturday. Passed with 29 out of 30 correct. I'd studied the CA DOJ study guide for a few days before.

The test is mainly common sense. I think one guy on here put it best, "Just assume a gun is like a killer shark and you'll pass with no trouble."

Thank you for posting the link Eureka

My cousin wants to guy a handgun - never fired a gun before.

Oh great I said !!!

Okay ... then I see this thread - PERFECT ...!

As of tonight, my cousin is studying booklet. I'm going to take him shooting a couple times before we go to buy his first handgun ... oyyy veyyyyy

He will be okay ... he's a smart guy, NOT a dummy.

Can you imagine being 58 years old and never fired a gun

Wow ...!

If you are really unsure about the test, make sure you wear a cup. If you fail the test the instructor kicks you in the nuts for being stupid.

If you answer the questions correctly as you would in a free state, you will fail. Not a joke it's true.

Don't do this - there are new members who are not familiar with the process and will not detect the sarcasm.

Just make sure that you think like an anti gun person. For example, if you get a question:

Microstamping, loaded chamber indicator and magazine disconnect:
a) Save lives.
b) Make guns more available in CA.
c) Are supported by 87% of people, and the rest are rednecks anyway, so their opinion doesn't matter.
d) All of the above.

Use your "anti gun common sense" to pick the correct answer, which is "d."

i took the test back when it was only required for handgun purchases. got a 29 out of 30. only question i missed was about cable locks and whether or not they were a safe way of securing a firearm. i said no, because a toothless meth addict could probably chew their way thru a cable lock. but apparently the answer was "yes" cable locks are a safe way to secure a firearm.

when they changed over to the new test that encompassed all firearms instead of just handguns, i retook the "new" test and it was literally the same exact questions. so i got 30 out of 30 that time.

My favorite question on the FSC test is "True/False: it is OK to shoot a firearm into the air to celebrate the 4th of July."

This "test" does nothing to prove that the test taker has knowledge of gun safety. It's just another fee imposed by the state disguised as a safety test.
