A handgun safety class will be offered through New River Community College on Tuesday, November 5 and Thursday, November 7.
Both class meetings will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. in Edwards Hall, room 206, at NRCC in Dublin. Range time will be offered on the Saturday following the class.
The cost of the course is $60, which includes a textbook.
The six-hour classroom portion of the course, instructed by Joey Williams, is required. However, range time is optional.
