Default Sacramento County Training Courses

All,

Did a search but couldn't find anything like this yet (if I missed it, forgive me).

Here is a list of all the Sacramento-area instructors/trainers offering the 16-hour initial (not renewal) training necessary to obtain a concealed carry weapon (CCW) permit for Sacramento County. If I missed any, let me know and I'll edit my post and try to keep it updated/correct.

This list is current as of 2018 February.

Respectfully,
butlers

Thank you! I updated the original post.

Anyone else have any others to add to the list? Again, just wanted to create a comprehensive listing of Sacramento-area instructors/courses who offer the 16-hour training for an initial CCW. I did some leg work so I'm hoping it helps others in the future....

The Gun Range is reasonably priced, and very good. We've also taken several classes with Wes at Lagomarsino Firearms Institute, and I can't recommend him highly enough.

the gun range is great for the first timers that might feel a little uneasy with the training/qualification process. great instructors that put everyone at ease while conducting a great class with CURRENT info that you need. nice in house set up.

Yes, well qualified, versed in the legal and practical application of ccw. Prior LEO,
I intend to take one of his advanced classes.

i have recently renewed with DefenseShot since my last post in here, by far, the most enjoyable class i have attended. they have their own range , (which has a stream running through it), and make every effort to help anyone with a disability qualify. i also took their hour class to get my utah ccw. (it adds around 37 states. everything from passport photo to fingerprints is done in class. when done, all you do is drop it in the mail. great group of people on this one !!

I'm sure he's great; however, I'm completely confused by his website...

trust me........you want this class . the Sac Sheriff does not.....accept all vendors for ccw training. the beginner ccw class and the renewal class, are done together. the first part of the day is the beginner ccw, and then the combined class in the afternoon.

Please read what I wrote.

The website says the Sheriff approved his course. Sac Sheriff doesn’t approve courses. He has dictated the BSIS CoF for all training to meet statutory requirements. Your comment twists that to say the Sheriff doesn’t accept all vendors. That’s correct. But the Sheriff, rather than approving courses and vendors, requires the vendors to be specifically state certified. The Sheriff doesn’t approve the certification of vendors.

Second issue. It doesn’t matter how the vendor sets up his class, the language on his website for RENEWAL CCW references “first time shooter”. That’s simply not possible and inordinately sloppy. Best.

I would recommend finding a recertification class that does NOT include an initial class as part of it. For example, initial class is Saturday and Sunday, but Sunday is also recertifications. The problem with this is if you can hit the broad side of a barn, you have to stand there and wait while the instructor teaches the initial class people how to shoot. I just want to get in and get out. I really don’t want to stand around for two hours while someone learns how to hold a handgun. That’s what basic handgun classes are for.

Ive been going to Wes at LFI for 6 years now. I have also done advanced classes.

Excellent teacher/safe and bueatiful outdoor facility to shoot(Sac Valley). Wes is smart/informed and laid back except on safety.
