Best Handgun Training Instructor John Taylor is certified to instruct for El Dorado County CCW courses, both the original CCW course and the CCW renewal course.

Firearms safety is of the utmost importance. It is our goal to educate and prepare you for the essentials of carrying a concealed weapon safely. 

We encourage the continued development of these skills, while pursuing further training courses, and going to the range to participate in the sport of target shooting, competitive events and other courses.

In my course, we will cover the safe handling, shooting fundamentals, marksmanship, firearms nomenclature, laws of the state of CA and the use of lethal force as it pertains to self defense, concealed carry tactics, retention, holstering, drawing and firing from concealment, the social and legal aftermath and effects of an incident after the use of deadly force, and situational awareness.

Best Handgun Training conducts regularly scheduled training classes throughout the month.

We are pleased to announce that Best Handgun Training now offers instructional courses just for women. Over time, some women have requested such a course, to relieve the pressure of competing with men in the class. Although a majority of our courses are for both men and women, now there is an opportunity to enroll in a course designed just for your needs.

Best Handgun Training offers many courses which are certified by the National Rifle Association. Be sure to sign up for your NRA class today.

The NRA does not certify CCW (Carry Concealed Weapons) courses.

Best Handgun Training also provides Concealed Firearms Permit training certifications for 34 "shall issue" states. This is an excellent opportunity to satisfy the requirements for these states, while only needing to apply within one state to obtain reciprocity throughout many other states (excluding CA, as CA does NOT have reciprocity agreements with any other state).

Although Best Handgun Training provides CCW Training and Instructions/Certifications/Qualifications in 33 states, this does not apply to all CA counties. CA CCW training requirements may vary from county to county. Please email or call for further clarifications.
