Firearm Safety Certificate

Firearm Safety Certificate - Study Guide

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 Highland Guns; 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.)

Please contact Highland Guns for more details. Store location, phone number and directions are available by clicking here.
