The Defensive Handgun 1 class often meets the requirements for obtaining a Carry Concealed Weapons CCW permit in many CA jurisdictions, as well as in number of other states. Through a combination of classroom and range training over two days, we will cover the knowledge and skills required to carry a firearm for personal protection outside the home.
We follow the NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home Course. Upon completing the class, you will receive a certificate from 29 Outdoor Gear, an FFL and approved trainer for Napa, Solano, and Sonoma County Sheriff’s Departments, and City of Napa Police Department. Several other law enforcement agencies recognize our CCW training as well. Threat Scenarios is the affiliate training organization of 29 Outdoor Gear with the same management. Through a partnership with Down Range Logistics, our CCW training is also recognized by both the Sacramento and El Dorado County Sheriff’s Departments.
Day 1 (8-Hours Classroom):
*Learn ethical responsibility, defensive mindset/awareness, and how to avoid, respond to and control an encounter.
*Discuss legal considerations including proportionate use of force, CCW insurance, and the aftermath of a shooting.
*Prepare a plan including firearm/holster selection, and good habits such as scanning and assessing the environment.
Day 2 (8-Hours Range):
*Improve draw, accuracy, speed shooting, and target acquisition skills (including point shooting).
*Move to, use, and shoot from behind cover.
*Practice response drills (left, right, rear), and retention shots.
The Defensive Handgun series is designed to take students from static line shooting into applying their skills in a real world environment. Through the supervision of our instructors, you will learn how to fight back with a firearm while under stress.
Ideally, the student would have a working knowledge of handguns and some experience. However, due to the high instructor-to-student ratio and small class size, we often are able to adapt to those with little or no experience.
What to Bring:
Gear: Ear protection/eye protection (wrap around glasses or glasses with some form of side protection preferred). Bring athletic shoes, boots, or cleats. It’s an outdoor range so check the weather and dress accordingly. We run rain or shine.
Firearm: Reliable semi-automatic handgun or revolver with three or more magazines (speed loaders). Bring a holster, and at least two magazine pouches. Holsters must be worn on the hip or thigh on the strong side.
Ammo: At least 350 rounds. Additionally, you will need 50 rounds per handgun for the qualification test. Some people shoot / reload faster than others. How much ammunition you want to use is up to you.
Personal: Bring your own lunch (there will be a 45 minute break). We are short driving distance from several restaurants. Snacks and water will be provided.
For those that want to take the class (or range day portion), without applying for a CCW rental firearm packages are available. Each package contains a modern, reliable handgun such as a Glock, three magazines, electronic ear protection, safety glasses, and speed loader. The rental package is $95 for the day. If you would like to reserve a rental package, please reply via email to the welcome letter you receive after booking the class.
