Prior to scheduling a CCW training course, you must verify that you do not have any prohibiting factors.

The NRA does not provide specific classes or certification for CCW permits. The following information is not endorsed or sponsored by the NRA. There may be changes, incorrect or omitted information (although we try hard to keep this page updated). It is your sole responsibility to investigate the CCW laws of each and every state with the issuing or governing authority.

There are over 32 "shall issue" states throughout the United States.  Whether you travel often, or just wish to exercise your 2nd Ammendment Rights, you may wish to become a licensed (permitted) Concealed Weapons Holder in some or all of these states.

Many states have reciprocity agreements with each other. 

The steps to become licensed in these 32 states have become rather streamlined, provided that you are a law abiding citizen and do not have a history of certain criminal convictions. You only need apply in one of these  "shall issue" states, and upon issuance, your Concealed Weapons Permit (Commonly referred to as CCW, CFP) is honored in these other states while their reciprocity agreements are in effect. Be sure to check the laws of other states which you will be travelling through, before you travel. Otherwise you may be committing a crime.

In CA, the Sheriff of each County (58 counties) is usually the issuing Authority. However, the population of each county dictates this law. Refer to the CA Penal Code for specific information.

CA is NOT a "shall issue" state. There must be good cause for the CCW applicant to be issued a CCW.

Good cause has many varying factors when it comes to issuance of a CCW.  Some county Sheriff's have a strict "no issue policy" and it can prove rather difficult or almost impossible to receive a CCW in these particular counties.

For information regarding applying for a CCW, click on the appropriate links for the state, to the menu at the left.

Once you have your CCW permit, it is important to have the proper instruction and training while carrying a concealed weapon, and continue to train on a regular basis.

Best Handgun Training offers the Personal Protection Outside The Home course. This course provides extensive training for Concealed Carry permit holders.
