About Us

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office Civilian Tactical Handgun Training prepares law abiding citizens for responsible gun ownership and self-protection using a handgun.

Students receive hands–on instruction from qualified firearms instructors using state of the art presentations and simunition training handguns, all in a comfortable and friendly environment.

The multi-phase program progresses from an introduction to basic handgun operations, safety, and the law through the fundamentals of defense shooting and preparation for real-world violent encounters.

*CTHT is not offered to those with law enforcement or military training.
