Bay Area BGOA is now an official partner of the USCCA.  This means students will have the opportunity to become USCCA members and receive self-defense liability insurance.  Many of our officers and trainers have had this policy even before our club was a USCCA partner.  If you own a gun it's a good idea to look into this.  We will have a USCCA rep on-site the day of the event to discuss what they offer.

Event will be held rain or shine and refunds are not available.
