Many areas require firearm safety course and others offer courses on firearm safety to help people learn about their guns so they can handle them safely. One such course has been announced and it’s first come first served.

The Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office will conduct a firearms safety and familiarization course from 8 a.m.-noon on May 13. The course covers a number of legal issues including: use of force and deadly force, firearms carry, fundamentals of shooting and live fire practice.

To participate, students will need a safe and operable pistol and holster, 50 rounds of ammunition for the gun and ear and eye protection. Foam earplugs and eyeglasses are sufficient protection.

The course is open to all residents of Colquitt County 18 and older who are legally qualified to possess a gun.
