Pistol safety training April 19 in Holbrook

HOLBROOK, Ariz. - Pistol safety training to qualify for a concealed weapons permit takes place April 19 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Northland Pioneer College's (NPC) Holbrook - Painted Desert Campus, Tiponi Community Center conference room.

The course fee is $75, which includes the required fingerprint card for the noncredit "National Rifle Association (NRA) Basic Pistol" workshop, taught by NRA-certified instructor Richard Harris.

Basic Pistol workshop (reference STC 099x-73708) participants must be at least 21 years old and bring their unloaded handguns and 50 rounds of ammunition, leaving them secured in their vehicles. Guns must have holsters.

Successful completion of this course will qualify the student to obtain an Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) permit for an additional $60. Renewal permits are $43. It can take as many as 60 days to process the DPS permit application. CCW permits are required in most states and national parks.

Harris is a certified NRA instructor in pistol, rifle and shotgun and is an NRA Certified Range Safety Officer.

Harris will teach a "Basic Self-Defense with a Handgun" course in Holbrook May 3 (reference STC 099x-73707), from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The $75 fee includes range time and a student manual containing all of the techniques and skills learned in the Self-Defense course. This course helps the student develop self-defense and defensive marksmanship skills with a handgun. A parent or guardian must accompany students in this class younger than the age of 21. Again, all weapons should be left secured in a vehicle.

Students must sign up for the Basic NRA Pistol or Basic Handgun Self-Defense workshops at least a week before the class starts to ensure it is not cancelled because of insufficient enrollment. Registration information is available at (928) 524-7459 or (800) 266-7845 ext. 7459, or at any NPC location during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, or 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays.
