CCW Demonstration Qualification

California Demonstration Qualification – Add a Weapon to Your CCW Permit


Adding a firearm to your CCW Permit

If you intend to add a firearm to your Carry Concealed Weapon (CCW) Permit, you will need to demonstrate your ability to qualify with that firearm prior to the issuing agency allowing you to add it to your permit. This short qualification is intended to do just that.

You will need:

  • At the most, 50 rounds of ammunition for each firearm you want to qualify/add with
  • Eye and Ear protection

There will be NO holster work for this qualification

You will have three chances to qualify. If you fail to qualify by your third try you must get some additional training time and you can take the Demonstration Qualification again. This is a requirement of the agencies issuing your permits.

$20 fee for the Demonstration Qualification
