CCW Prep Course - Apple Valley Gun Club

San Bernardino County CCW Preparation Course

The Apple Valley Gun Club offers a CCW preparation course on the first Tuesday of each month.

This class is to help you prepare for both the application process and the shooting portion of your CCW qualification. On the range you will shoot the same style target, B-27, that you will shoot for your San Bernardino County Range Qualification. The class includes both classroom and range time. There will be discussion on the fundamentals of shooting, as well as the legal responsibilities of concealed carry.

All AVGC firearms training classes and matches are open to the public.

The gate will be unlocked and open when you arrive and will be locked shortly after the event or class starts.
Please arrive on time or early.

Complete details on obtaining a San Bernardino CCW can be found at the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Website:   For CCW permits in other counties, please see your respective law enforcement website.
