New Firearms Legislation: "Bullet Button" Firearms will be Considered Assault Weapons Effective January 1, 2017

Pursuant to Assembly Bill 1135 (Stats. 2016, ch. 40) and Senate Bill 880 (Stats. 2016, ch. 48) effective January 1, 2017, the definition of assault weapon is revised.
These bills will require that any person who, from January 1, 2001, to December 31, 2016, inclusive, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine, as defined in Penal Code section 30515, including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be readily removed from the firearm with the use of a tool, shall register the firearm before January 1, 2018, THE PROBLEM is DOJ has NOT open registration yet. So until then Californians could be charged of carrying a "unregistered assault weapon" unless you go featureless CLICK HERE for more info. For more information on registering your bullet button rifle you can check out DOJ web site HERE.  

Forward Assist Training is not regulating nor are we responsible to enforce this law, it is at the discretion of the student to participate at our events with a featureless of not.

We teach bullet button

As a Southern California based school it is important to train legally. It is your right to defend yourself but you would also want to do it within California State law. We teach some of the best techniques used in conjunction with the California bullet button.

We are a civilian based school teaching civilian students for situations that we would most likely encounter here at home not on a battlefield.
