Gun courses being offered at GCCC
The Garden City Community College Department of Public Safety has scheduled a new series of classes for local and area residents who want to qualify for a Kansas concealed-carry handgun permit, as well as a basic firearms course for women. One of the courses is the National Rifle Association's Women on Target course.
The one-day course covers the use of handguns, rifles and shotguns, including live fire instruction and practice on the Sand and Sage range, weather permitting.
Upon completion, a participant should be able to select, clean and store a firearm, understand ammunition, and know how to safely load, unload and fire a gun. Certificates will be awarded to participants who successfully complete the course, which costs $70.
The NRA's Women on Target basic firearms class will be offered from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 7. The course is also being offered on Oct. 12.
Courses will take place only with sufficient enrollment. Pre-registration for the basic firearms is available by email@example.com, or 276-9629, and information is available at www.team-t.org.
