BEST HANDGUN TRAINING  has moved our classroom training facility, to a more comfortable, larger office with plenty of parking. It’s just about one mile away from the former Lincoln Blvd location.  


Driving directions:  


From I-80, exit Hwy 65 towards Marysville (North). Exit (to the right) at Nelson Lane (no off-ramp, but there is a traffic signal). This is one exit beyond the Ferrari Ranch off-ramp. Drive about a mile, and at the Nelson Lane stop sign, turn right on to Nicolaus Road. At the 2nd stop sign, turn left on Lakeside Drive, and then a right into the Chevron gas station parking lot.


Or, if you are coming from our former Lincoln Blvd location, go ½ block North on Lincoln Blvd, turn left on 7th Street, and a right on H Street (at the Lincoln Police Department) . H Street becomes Nicolaus Road. Go through one stop sign, and through one traffic signal (Joiner Parkway), and 2270 Nicolaus Road is on the right, in the shopping strip. We are located in Suite 109, just to the right of Pizza RoundUp. There is plenty of parking.  Another reference point is to the right of the Chevron (Tower Mart) gas station.

Best Handgun Training Instructors are certified by either (one or all of the following):  National Rifle Association, CA Department of Justice, POST (Peace Officers Standards and Training).

Firearms safety is of the utmost importance. It is our goal to educate and teach you the  knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary for owning, using and storing a firearm safely. 

We encourage the continued development of these skills, while pursuing the sport of target shooting, competitive events and other courses.

Gun Safety is a very serious matter, which cannot be taken lightly. Becoming a handgun owner or a Concealed Weapons Permit Holder assumes a tremendous amount of responsibility and liability.

Just because you own or may have access to a firearm (unless you have had some extensive training) doesn't mean that you have the "proper" training, knowledge and ability to use it safely, store it propery, and be prepared for any situation. The proper training with a firearm is extremely important.

Our Certified Instructors pride themselves with instructing some of the best firearms training courses available to the public.

Whether you are new to shooting, or an experienced shooter, you will find that the variety of firearms courses which we offer can be a great wealth of experience.

Best Handgun Training conducts regularly scheduled training classes throughout the month. Our calendar is posted online, on or about the 15th of each month, for the following month.

Best Handgun Training offers many courses which are certified by the National Rifle Association. Be sure to sign up for your NRA class today. Click here to schedule an appointment.

The NRA does not currently certify CCW (Carry Concealed Weapons) courses.

Best Handgun Training also provides a Concealed Firearms Permit training certification for 34 "shall issue" states. This is an excellent opportunity to satisfy the requirements for these states, while only needing to apply within one or more states to obtain reciprocity throughout many other states (excluding CA, as CA does NOT have reciprocity agreements with any other state).

Although Best Handgun Training provides CCW Training and Instructions/Certifications/Qualifications in 33 states, this does not apply to all CA counties. CA CCW training requirements may vary from county to county. Please email or call for further clarifications.
