Featured Class:


October 28

This 4 hour course will cover basic disassembly and maintenance and will also dig deeper in the the platform and cover disassembly of all the main sub assemblies. We will study the different operating systems of the platform as well as different configurations. Special emphasis will be given to explaining and detailing California’s ever-changing gun laws as they pertain to these rifles. Class rifles are provided, but students are welcome to bring their own rifles. The goal of this class is to provide the student with exposure to different parts and aspects of the AR-15 that they might not encounter regularly. You will also leave with a more comprehensive knowledge of the workings and maintenance requirements of your rifle



For individual private CCW classes (initial or renewal) you get to choose the date and have a dedicated instructor for your 8-hour class and range shoot. Book online now and our staff will schedule you for a weekday or weekend training session to help you complete the training portion of your CCW application.
