Depends on the type of training you are looking for. Check out Threat Scenarios, run out of the 29 Outdoor Gear Shop in American Canyon. Good group of instructors; preach safety first but a friendly bunch with experience.
Classes offered in Richmond. Good Luck!

@Peng Alpha Dog Tactical covers everything from beginning to advance pistol, shotgun and rifles. Jeff is a great instructor from basic to advance gun manipulation, mindset, to tactics and how all 3 work in unison.

+1 for Alpha Dog tactical -- he's local, prices are extremely reasonable, and instruction is great. Also, the mindset he drives is very practical for a civilian self-defense/law enforcement, as opposed to a super-killer operator.

to be fair, i've only taken a single class from another instructor on a square range, and a appleseed years ago, so i don't have whole depth of first-hand experience.
