Frequently Asked Questions

The most popular FAQ:

Q:  For the CCW classes, do I have to take an 8 or 16 hour class, and do I need my own handgun?

A:  It really depends on your licensing authority in the county that is your primary residence. It seems that most of the foothill counties that we service only require an 8-hour course, while the valley seems to want 16-hours. Some counties require that you must qualify on each handgun that you want on your license, while other counties do not have that requirement. If your county does not require qualification on each handgun, you may bring any handgun that you wish to train on.

Q:  Are you still offering tactical courses? I do not see them on the schedule.

A: Unfortunately we had to close our beautiful private range due to the threat of three neighbors to sue us. We regretfully have closed half of our business unexpectedly, but are looking at options to facilitate these classes once again. We still offer classes at the Mother Lode Gun Club including CCW classes, Women & Handgun courses, and several other classes. We do conduct these courses on-site at private ranges or clubs that our students have available. We have a mobile training unit available.

Q:  I just bought a firearm and don't see a class available to learn from WTS. Are there any other options for me?

A:  Yes, we do offer private lessons

Q:  I see you have a consulting side to your business. What type of training is included in that?

A:  We offer personal security training for businesses and organizations such as schools, churches, small and large organizations. We are also bringing back our on-site custom home security training for families.
