Do you know the “RULE OF 3”?


Most close range encounters last only 3 seconds.


The encounters end after 3 shots are fired in total.


Close range distance is typically under 3 yards.


We have joined the ranks of respected companies in Orange County and Los Angeles, authorized to provide CCW training for those in pursuit and renewal of the California CCW permit. FT3 is the premier indoor shooting range in Orange County and Southern California and we have the pleasure of using the facilities for our course. At both the in person and hybrid course will have private access to the range where we will hold our live fire training and qualification for the course. Successful completion of the course will satisfy the requirements for the Orange County and Los Angeles permit application and renewal.

Applicants will get their fingerprints scanned for their application, courtesy of HelpingHands Live Scan. At every course a USCCA representative will be able to answer your questions about self defense liability and help you understand the benefits of the widely used carry insurance services of USCCA.

Our course is extremely comprehensive and exceeds state requirement to ensure you leave our training set up for successful concealed carry.

  • Our course for new applicants will be $350 and both days are required.
  • Renewal clients are only obligated to attend Day 1 (1-5 pm) and Day 2 (7-4 pm). Thus the cost for renewal is $175.
  • If you need to add a firearm to your already valid permit, you may sign up and attend any of our available classes for $50. 

If you or anyone you know is interested in our course, we would love to have you train with us. Please contact us directly to register for the course. We are limited to only 14 students as we try to provide a semi-private environment with a ratio of 1 instructor to 4 students. So please reserve your seat today!
