Sierra CCW began after it became apparent that real-world CCW instruction was lacking in the Sierra/Truckee/Lake Tahoe region.   The State of California requires CCW applicants to complete a course of instruction when applying for an original or renewal CCW permit.  Sierra CCW takes students through the CCW application process, and presents the most important information available to CCW applicants on a multitude of topics that every CCW holder needs to know while carrying.

There are many instructors out there who can't or won't provide students with  real-world information about CCW carry.  At Sierra CCW, you'll get up-to-date information and proven techniques that can better prepare you to handle potentially life-threatening situations. Demonstrations, discussions, videos, written materials, and even free schwag and prizes are combined to provide students with an outstanding experience and the most value possible from a CCW class.
