Welcome to The Gun School

I’m Danny R. Wells, Owner and Master Instructor of The Gun School. I have been teaching basic firearms classes for over 30 years. I have extensive experience and am a qualified expert with the rifle, pistol and shotgun with both my right and left hands. I opened The Gun School on January 2, 1988 and truly enjoy educating, preparing and qualifying the good people of California’s Central Coast and Central Valley, in the safe and effective use of firearms.

I offer a variety of Firearms Courses, for civilians and professionals, from Introduction to Handguns & Long guns, and Family Gun Safety Class, to Courses for Carrying Concealed Weapons in California, and in up to 30 other states. Strict standards and legal requirements are met for each class. All students receive a Certificate upon successful completion of their course.
