Our handgun saftey course is held once a month, typically the last Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of each month. It runs from 6 pm to 10 pm each night. The first two night are held in our store, the last night is at the Penobscot County Conservation Club which is about 5 minutes down the road from us.

The course involves an in-depth instruction on the basic safety practices with firearms, the different types and styles of handguns, and does involve a written test and a hands-on test to demonstrate that you can safely handle a handgun when shooting and when not. Upon successful completion of the course, you will be awarded an NRA Certificate of Basic Handgun Safety. In Maine, this is the prerequisite for a concealed weapons permit.

Besides taking the class to get your concealed weapons permit, it is a great class for anyone looking to learn more about handguns, and firearms in general. You gain a great deal of knowledge that can seriously help you decide on which handgun you may want for hunting, target shooting, and for a concealed weapon.
