    ROUNDS OF AMMO:  72 rounds for 1st firearm, 20 rounds for each subsequent firearm


    While ADI is a certified CCW training provider for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, taking this course does not guarantee a CCW. The Artemis Defense Institute’s CCW course has been approved to provide the basic foundation to what is necessary to be a responsible CCW holder. There is no limit to the number of firearms you choose to have on your license, and there is no additional cost to you.  Please note:  OCSD has no limit to the number of firearms listed on your permit; however, LASD limits it to three guns.  Adding a firearm later to your license is easy to do; see ADD-A-GUN below for details.

    Here are all of the things you’ll need to bring on Sunday:

    • Government-issued ID, preferably a CA Driver’s License
    • ALL of the firearms that you want listed on your CCW
    • Magazines for your firearms (three preferable)
    • At least two magazine pouches, unless you plan to carry in your pocket
    • Ammunition:  72 rounds for firearm #1; 20 rounds for each subsequent firearm
    • A holster that fits the above firearm in the manner in which you plan to carry – (no ankle please)
    • Eye Protection
    • Ear Protection

    The first day of training is held online only via Zoom. Once you sign up for the course, you’ll receive a confirmation email with all the links and ID’s required.

    For those of you that have never used Zoom, this is a fantastic video that shows just how easy it is to join the class. See you there!
