Default Insight on CCW 16 hour course - Sacramento

Is anyone familiar with the CCW 16 hour course provided by The Gun Authority in Rancho Cordova (Sacramento area)?

I need to complete the course in March. With my busy schedule the only date I have available is a course offered through them.

If anyone has any experience, good, bad or indifferent, please share.

Thanks

I've been to the shop. I personally haven't taken the course there but, they do have a respectable classroom space. Not sure where they go to conduct the live fire. Closest range is at the down the road at the Rancho Cordova range off Douglas but, they do their on course there. I don't suspect they allow other schools to go there. Unless of course they do allow it...

I guess I haven't offered very useful information...

After stopping in earlier this week I had a chance to find out about their CCW course. I then decided to take the course and I'm glad I did. Great training and my instructor was top notch. I qualified & will be doing my re-cert through them when it's time.

DoubleTap - if you're wondering they conduct the live fire at The Gun Range.

I just did mine there. Every guy there is class act and easy going. They even worked with me on rescheduling my Qual day since when I was there I decided to buy a new pistol. They waited for it to arrive and met me at the range with it one on one just so I could Qual with my new pistol. I've taken friends here now to buy guns. Super nice guys here.

I'm not intending to take anything away from The Gun Authority - their gunsmith Rusty helped assemble my AR15 (Samson 9-EX and Adams Arms piston..pain in the butt with very little clearance) and the shop has been super friendly.

I took the 16 hour course at Best Handgun Training with John Taylor in Lincoln, CA for folks up north interested and stumble upon this thread. Great guy with several ex-LEO instructors who provide a safe, informative, and fun class. Last I remember: $175 for initial ccw, 20% discount for LEO/FF/Mil/First responder, and they also offer the Utah ccw application/fingerprinting for $75.

ffemt - is Best Handgun Training the one that does the 16 hr course in one day? I heard there was a place in Lincoln that combines the two day training into one. Might be useful for those who can't carve out two whole days on the weekend.

That's correct, well worth it to knock it out in one day.

Obtaining a concealed handgun license is fairly simple if you do it via the appropriate routes. The most efficient way is to do it online via a Sheriff's program.

Karl, welcome to Forums.

The post to which you've responded is over a year old and quite dead.

Since you posted a link to an online course for an Oregon CHL, you may have missed the subject of the thread which pertains to information on a specific CCW course held in Sacramento CA. Online courses for Oregon won't qualify for the CA CCW. But the info might be helpful in the "Non-California Permits/Licenses For out of State License/Permit" discussion.
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/f...play.php?f=378

Best.

+1 for Best Handgun training in Lincoln. Took the initial 16-hour course in one day, and just did a requal with him. Excellent class both times. Got my Utah CCW through him too. Highly recommend.

Does anyone know if it is actually 7:30AM to 10:30PM for the one day course?

I really want to do that but I'm not sure if my brain can survive that many hours..

They make you shoot a blindfolded guy sitting in a chair. Once you do that you're good, no time requirement....

Jeeezzzz, I hope it's not 16 hours since it isn't required to be 16 hours. The fine print says "not to exceed 16 hours"

This post has come back to life. I did my original course at the gun authority. Don't believe they're around now.
It's now time for my renewal so I'm considering options. I bought a living social coupon for best handgun & I'm looking to use it.
Anybody do their renewal at Best Handgun?

I'm looking to schedule my class, and either going with the gun range or Cordova shooting center. Anyone have experience with either of these 2?
