About Redding

Redding is one of the most beautiful places in America. Redding is one of the most serene places in California.  There are mountains surrounding us on 3 sides, 2 amazing lakes, and the beautiful Sacramento River running right through the middle of town. With the addition of the Sundial Bridge to miles and miles of trails, it’s a site to behold.

But wait, there’s more…

But behind all of the beauty, there is a darker side. There has been a rise in homelessness. To continue, law enforcement doesn’t have enough bodies and there’s a shortage of jail beds. Redding is not as safe as it used to be. That is why there has been a dramatic increase in CCW classes. A day doesn’t go by without some interactions between the locals and the homeless population. Facebook pages like Redding Crime 2.0 and Take Back Redding have sprung up. They are some of the most popular pages on the social media giant locally.

Our Facebook Page has over 1800 LIKES and garners some of the best CCW and protection dialogue in the area. Come join our community to learn more about Redding CCW classes, protecting your home and family and getting to know us.   Register now to get signed up for our next Redding CCW class.  It’s a beautiful place to live, but you still want to protect yourself.
