We have recently noticed a sharp increase in the number of person applying to purchase handguns and/or to obtain concealed pistol licenses.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with the NCW gun club will host a handgun safety course on Saturday March 26th between the hours of 10:00 AM and 1:30 PM. The training will be at the NCW gun range in East Wenatchee.
The goal is to reduce the likelihood of injury or death by improper handling of hand guns. The objective is to educate citizens on proper handgun nomenclature, safety skills, and proper techniques.
There will be a live fire portion to allow students to practice their safety skills on the range. The course will be led by NRA certified handgun instructors and Douglas County Sheriff’s Office firearms instructors.
Students must be over the age of 21 and have no restrictions to firearms ownership.
Anyone interested in asked to call Guy Miner at (509)664-9582.
