– Chris J., Paramedic and former Marine

“Rex is a great instructor with a lot of knowledge. His passion for teaching is infectious. He takes the time to ensure you are comfortable with shooting your weapon. It is more then a class it is training to effectively hit your intended target. .”

– Steven Cole, Corporate Insurance

Kim lawrence Rex’s course provides terrific preparation in advance of obtaining a CCW. My husband and I are experienced shooters, but after taking Rex’s course we have a much higher level of confidence in our ability to respond and protect ourselves and our family in the event we encounter a hostile attacker. The knowledge we gained and the training Rex provided is invaluable as we prepare to be responsible gun-carrying citizens in an increasingly dangerous world. I strongly advise taking Rex’s supplemental training courses.”

Tom Elliot “When I received my CCW approval letter from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, it was a requirement to take a CCW class with an approved CCW instructor in Ventura County, California.  After speaking with several instructors I chose Rex Jones with 805CCW.  Rex is a retired Simi Valley Police Lieutenant. Given the extraordinary responsibility of Concealed Carry, taking a CCW class by someone with REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE is invaluable..”
