CCW 8-hour Renewal Courses


The State of California requires all renewal CCW courses be a minimum of 8-hours, as of 01/01/2024. At Chico Rod and Gun Club the instructors sometimes offer this course in a one time 8 hour session or we offer this course in a Modular Format (part one / part two) 2 four hour classes.

You can qualify up to four firearms during this class. For the firearms qualification, you are required to shoot a minimum of 10 rounds per firearm you are qualifying. Eight out of ten rounds must be shown within the qualifying rings. No scopes, magnum loads or lasers are permitted. This class is not for ‘Practice’, practice range nights are offered, please look at the calendar.
