Effective Jan. 1, 2015, CA State Law requires firearms buyers (unless exempted) to obtain the Firearms Safety Certificate (FSC) prior to the transfer of a firearm. (Persons with a valid Handgun Safety Certificate may continue to use their HSC for handgun purchases up until the expiration date of their HSC.)
In order to obtain the FSC, you must pass a written test on firearm safety and laws as specified by CA State Law. The FSC test may be taken at our location; persons who successfully pass the test will be issued the FSC at the store.
The CA Dept. of Justice (DOJ) has published the study guide below as a means to prepare individuals to pass the FSC test. Click on the English or Spanish version to download a .pdf version of the study guide. (The DOJ no longer offers printed copies of the study guide.)
