New to firearms or considering buying your first one?

Firearm Training Gun Breakdown Orange County, CA

You are not alone! The number of new gun owners is staggering. California firearms laws are convoluted and confusing. Knowing how to navigate the regulatory process is the first step in firearms ownership.

 

Also, know that there are no firearm “accidents” – there is only firearm negligence. It is imperative to know, understand, and internalize the four firearm safety rules through frequent, consistent, and constant training. To get started, watch our New Gun Owners Video Series made just for you.

 

 

For anyone looking for legal advice regarding gun-ownership and other general questions, we hold a weekly Office Hours with the Co-Owner & Use-Of-Force Attorney Steven Lieberman that is completely free of charge.
