The benefits of taking this class is each participant will receive a certificate of training from the Sheriff's Office that they can use as proof of required training in order to obtain a concealed handgun permit.

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn safe gun practices. Students must bring their own unloaded hand gun in a holster with at least 50 rounds of ammunition. Also remember to bring a belt for your holster and hearing and eye protection. No magnums are allowed on the indoor range.
