PWG Range Class

Concealed American CCW 8-Hour

Intermediate Handgun Class that is Fun and Informative

Imagine having your concealed carry (CCW) license. It doesn’t have to be a fantasy just because you live in San Diego. You should be able to protect yourself and your family at any time necessary. Our Concealed American class not only ensures that you meet the training requirements to be issued your CCW, but through this class our instructors help you understand how to fill out the application so you have the best probability of success during the CCW review process with the Sheriff. Upon successful completion of this class you will be eligible to get your CCW permit in approximately 41 states across America.

Get Comfortable Using a Handgun

During this class we expose you to the laws and legal definitions that revolve around concealed carry. We ensure you are confident and capable enough to carry a firearm concealed in public. PWG believes in everyone’s right to survive and we encourage any lawful person who wants to pursue the training and knowledge necessary to protect themselves, regardless of where they are or when they or their family are in danger. You will be exposed to deadly force scenarios, situational preparedness and psychological considerations of carrying a concealed firearm.
