CCW License Changes Effective 1/1/19


The Redding CA CCW Classes hosted by the Firearms Academy of Redding are of the highest quality designed to teach the student the practical and legal use of a handgun in self-defense.

LAW CHANGES

There are changes to California law (AB-1203) that take effect on January 1, 2019. These changes impact all CCW holders in California, but more so those renewing an existing CCW License.

What are the changes?

Besides the usual classroom session which covers handgun safety and the laws regarding permissible use of a firearm, the new law now requires “range qualification”  for both initial (first time) and renewal applicants.

Range qualification consists of additional training on firearm handling, shooting technique, and live-fire shooting exercises on a firing range that are scored by an instructor for each firearm listed on the CCW License.

The requirement for Shasta County is shooting 20 rounds at 7 yards, and scoring 16 hits or better in the 9 ring of a specified B27 target.  This is roughly equivalent to putting 16 out of 20 rounds into a sheet of letter size paper from a distance of 21 feet.

INITIAL (FIRST TIME) CCW STUDENTS

Enrollment for initial training consists of 2 parts.

The content is required by CA law, specifically section 26165(a) of the California Penal Code.

PART 1: CLASSROOM SESSION

This is a 4 hour classroom lecture. The training consists of instruction on firearm safety and the laws regarding permissible use of a firearm.

PART 2: INITIAL RANGE TRAINING SESSION

This session is hands-on learning.  The range session consists of beginner training on firearm handling, shooting technique, and live-fire shooting exercises on a firing range.  For those possessing their own firearm, new CCW applicants will continue through the “range qualification” process to enable them to obtain a CCW license. Those using a borrowed gun will need to return to qualify with the gun they will ultimately purchase.

RENEWAL CCW STUDENTS

Enrollment for renewal training now consists of 2 parts.

The content is required by CA law, specifically section  26165(d) of the California Penal Code.

Part 1: Classroom Session:

This is a 4 hour classroom lecture. The training consists of instruction on firearm safety and the laws regarding permissible use of a firearm.

Part 2: Renewal Range Qualification Session:

Range qualification is now required for renewal CCW license applicants for each firearm listed on the CCW license.

To determine what you need to do as a new or renewal applicant, see CCW License Training Requirements table below.
