For 2023 Concealed Carry School is the evolution of what was formerly DH1, and DH2. This class will introduce you to the foundational concepts of owning, carrying, and shooting a pistol or revolver in self defense. If you have just bought your first handgun, are interested in owning one, or are interested in stepping off on your journey in tactical firearm training, this is an exciting opportunity to get started in a thorough, detailed, and beginner friendly manner. Students who successfully complete this program will receive a certificate of completion which can be used for applying for California CCW.
This two day class is offered four times per year.
We will offer this class in the very popular accelerated 1 day format as the schedule permits.

You can choose how much you pay for this class. If you’re uncertain how much is appropriate, $200-$400 is good.
For the one day accelerated format, the price is the same. You get the same material packed into one long day, with a much much smaller class, usually 3-6 students, which is suitable for folks who need a fast paced refresher, those on a tight schedule and who can’t afford a whole weekend to play, and those who prefer the small group focus and quality.
If you need guns, holsters, or ammo, you can contact Brian at email@example.com, or call 408-892-5460.
We supply weapons and equipment free of charge. We have a some selection of handguns you can choose from, to include Glock 17, 1911, Shield, GP100, LCR, etc.
This class is designed to take 16-20 hours, having said that, we can only progress at the students’ pace, so some classes will go longer, and some classes will end sooner. I expect if you sign up, that you commit your weekend to training, and that you come on time and stay to the end to help clean up and debrief.
If you need to borrow equipment, you should plan to arrive 30 minutes early, so that we can get you outfitted with your gear.
As scheduled, Day 1 starts at 12 noon, and day 2 ends at 5pm. This is subject to modification depending on sunset time and the weather, as some training must be done after dark, some must be done during daylight.
One day accelerated classes start at 9am and end at 7-9pm depending on how fast the students learn.
Our facility is 1 hours east of San Jose, 1 hour south from Livermore. Detailed directions will be emailed to those who sign up.
