CCW in CA
Years ago I took a required class before getting a CCW in No. Calif.
It comprised a fair amount of classroom discussion and 1/2 day of range time.
Instructors included CHP, Prosecuting Attorney, Judge, several Gun Instructors.
All gave good information. We also had time "off-the-record" to ask questions and receive answers candidly. No notes were taken then nor photos. Got very good street advice from LEO's and Prosecuting Attorneys.
