About The Range Pistol Club

The Range Pistol Club is the largest firearms facility on the west coast, the only facility in California of its kind and one of only 5 in the US. The Range was founded in 1994 as California’s premier indoor firearms range. There is also a full-service retail showroom and the first 5.11 Tactical Series Signature retail store. The founder envisioned and has realized a place where the public can gather to experience the thrill and excitement of sending a round down range for the first time, and where a father and son, or a mother and daughter, can share a memory of experiencing a moment they will never forget.

The Range Pistol Club’s mission is to educate the general public, the passionate sportsman, as well as the municipal law enforcement population regarding all the necessary rights and responsibilities that go along with owning and using firearms. The Range constantly evolves in its continuing dedication to address different responsibilities, rights, and needs of firearm owners. Staff and instructors rigorously weigh all social, economic, and educational aspects of firearm training. The Range then refines the programs based on the findings, and then applies new programs as well as assists others within the firearm community in terms of meeting the demands of changing times.


The Range Pistol & Police Science Institute is proud in providing a variety of instructional course for different individuals. The classes offered to all who wish to own and use a gun include:

  • Concealed Weapon Permit – a step-by-step introduction to the CCW permit process.
  • Concealed Weapon Permit Renewal – renew your CCW every two years (as required by law).
  • Hunter’s Safety Course – a requirement for anyone who wish to apply for a hunting license within California.
  • International Defensive Pistol Association – simulation of self-defense scenarios and real-life encounters that will involve the use of a gun.
  • Monday Night Shooters (Beginners Handgun Class) – basic pistol class for individuals who are just beginning to use handguns, as well as those who wish to refresh gun safety and technique. An NRA-certified instructor will lead and teach the class.
  • Private Firearms Instruction – one-on-one training with professionals
  • Utah CCW Certification – this permit is a great CCW supplement, which is honored in more than 30 states
  • Women’s Basic Beginning & CCW – class specially designed for women
