“When I received my letter from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department authorizing me to get my Concealed Carry training, I knew right where to go. 805CCW Ventura County’s most experienced CCW trainer was the choice. Rex’s reputation and knowledge of the subject is amazing. Fun class and I highly recommend Rex and 805CCW for your Concealed Carry Weapons training! ”

“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..”
