Price: $200 + $20 Range Fee (Range Fee Applies to Non-Members of Wren's Ranch Range Only)
All students will read the Street Safe Defense Handgun Safety Manual and take the written test BEFORE coming to the range for physical instruction and handgun(s) qualification.
Upon arriving at the Wrens Range in Perris, our firearms staff will check all weapons and holsters to ensure that they meet the safety criteria. Those students who have firearms and/or holsters or safety equipment that do not meet our stated safety criteria will be dismissed from class and will be allowed to re-register for a future class no later than 60 days after date of dismissal.
Once all weapons and holsters have been cleared, students will receive an additional one hour CCW handgun safety and legal liability lecture from our firearms instructor(s) prior to commencing actual physical handgun training.
Carrying a concealed firearm for personal protection and self-defense is a serious force option that carries with it significant personal responsibilities and criminal/civil liabilities. Therefore, the Street Safe Defense vetting process to certify citizens for the law enforcement CCW permit process is thorough.
By registering for the Street Safe defense CCW or CCW Renewal courses, you are automatically attesting that you are an INTERMEDIATE-LEVEL shooter who is thoroughly familiar with their firearm(s) and holster system(s) and can operate safely and efficiently in a group setting.
If you are a novice shooter who is interested in obtaining a CA or AZ State CCW permit, we would strongly suggest that you register for either our Concierge Private Handgun or Defensive Handgun, Level I classes as a prerequisite for registering for the CCW courses.
The CCW and CCW Renewal Courses are restricted to INTERMEDIATE-LEVEL handgun shooters ONLY. An “intermediate-level shooter,” is defined as a person who is thoroughly familiar with their firearm(s) and holster systems; has significant practice drawing, firing and re-holstering their firearm(s) from the holstered position and can operate safely and without difficulties when drawing, firing and re-holstering in a group setting.
This course is NOT designed for the novice shooter, nor anyone who is not thoroughly familiar and practiced with their firearm(s) and holster(s) systems. Those novice/inexperienced persons who register for this class and are found not to be an intermediate-level shooter by the range staff, will be dismissed from class without refund of tuition.
This is an INTERMEDIATE-LEVEL SHOOTERS course, designed for people who are already familiar with their handguns and firearms safety and who anticipate becoming an armed citizen, as well as those who want additional training in the safety and proper handling of firearms at home and in public personal self-defense shooting skills. The course will focus on the following topics: firearms safety; shooter responsibility and self-defense laws; handgun familiarity; handgun manipulation; basic marksmanship; threat assessment and firing a holstered handgun from the 3 yds, 5 yds and 10 yds ranges.
NOTICE - All students MUST be able to manipulate, draw from a holster, fire, re-load their weapon(s) and re-holster the weapon(s) without difficulty and in a safe manner within a group setting.
