Firearm Safety Certificate | Study Guide

In California, firearm safety is non-optional under the law. According to Penal Code section 26840, every gun owner in California should have a Firearm Safety Certificate. However, this doesn’t apply to you if you’re statuary exempt from the Firearm safety requirements.

To legally purchase and sell guns in California, you need to understand the state’s gun laws and get a firearm safety certificate by passing a test with at least a 75% score, administered by the US Department of Justice (DOJ).

Let’s take a quick look at some ways you can clear the FSC test.

Understand the Safety Aspects of Firearm

Firearms should be handled with precaution and care. You don’t only need knowledge about its functions but also safe gun storage. Several firearms-related accidents occur because of the unsafe storage of guns.

Since there are strict laws related to gun safety, you can be sent to prison or fined if you don’t comply with the laws. Learning these laws is needed to clear the FSC test.

You can take advice from a firearm expert or a firearm sales professional to learn about the safety aspects of the firearm you’re planning to purchase.

Firearm Training Course

Just like, you need some behind-the-wheel training before getting your license to drive a car, you also need to attend courses for firearm ownership. While you can also find online resources to prepare for the test, the government of California suggests you enroll yourself in a hands-on training course to become skilled in operating and storing firearms.

You should also read instruction manuals of used firearms (you can acquire them by requesting the firearm manufacturer) to familiarize yourself about the usage of the firearm you plan to purchase.
