interested in learning, not simply trying to get a CCW
urges you to arm yourself! Article is Here
California Concealed Weapons Permits. Sheriff issued permit valid for entire
state of California.
Constitutional Sheriff issues Concealed Weapon Permits, and desires that more
Citizens be armed. Do you think you and your family are exempt from
violent predators? So, why don't you have your CCW? Why aren't you armed
as an American Citizen should be?
With the present economic and social
climate, you may recognize the need to legally
carry a firearm not only at home but in public in order to defend yourself and
family from violence. Or possibly you desire to better incorporate a firearm
into your home defense plan. In either case, why not maximize your training
and knowledge? Many believe that the Shasta Defense initial course (range
and classroom) provides more individual instruction, coaching, personal training, and exposure than other
With Shasta Defense class sizes (4 maximum)
students, you receive meaningful coaching so that you can become comfortable and
competent with your firearm. The reality is that if you have to use your firearm
for self defense, at that point in time it is too late to be wishing you had
obtained the training you actually needed. Between class
sessions, students are to study the materials
and perform daily dry fire practice as instructed during class. The Shasta
Defense instruction includes personal extensive hands on range
training with your firearm under close instructor supervision and coaching. The Shasta
Defense courses exceed the requirements of California State Law. You are
voluntarily obtaining the extra training. This merely recognizes that the time
for education and training is before you have to consider drawing or
using your firearm.

you are using a firearm for personal defense at home (even if you don't desire a
CCW), you should seriously consider taking this course or equivalent
instruction. The legal requirements as to defending you and your loved ones by
resort to deadly force apply to you, even at home. Legal and civil consequences
follow the use of a firearm. American citizens need to know the rules of lethal
force and the rules of gun safety.
(prior 20 hour
Defense classes are
designed to teach the practical and legal use of a handgun in self defense.
Topics include: firearms safety, personal safety and avoiding
confrontations, mental awareness, carrying concealed handguns, the
legal use of deadly force and practical range training. During this
course, you will learn skills, including: proper steps in drawing from a strong
side holster, moving off the line of attack, firing (or not firing when threat
ceases), reloading, scanning and assessing, and re-holstering. You will engage
targets at ranges from 7 yards to
contact with "attacker"
retention skills). Training will also include: shooting from longer distances
(you need to know your practical limitations, and legal), learning about your
reactionary gap (Tueller drill), safe hand changes, and one handed shooting
(left and right hands). Also, what do you say to the police after a shooting?
Who do you call? How do you respond when officers arrive and you are
armed? Please note that not all courses conducted by other instructors provide instruction
on the proper drawing from a holster. I view this as a necessary safety procedure.
After all, upon issuance of a CCW, you will be carrying a loaded firearm in a
holster. Don't you think you need to be skilled in how to draw and
