Concealed handgun training course set Saturday, Jan. 18
The Bossier Sheriff’s Office is offering concealed handgun training for those who want to obtain their Louisiana Concealed Handgun Permit.
The training will be at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 18, at the Bossier Sheriff’s Office range, located at 2977 Old Plain Dealing Road in Plain Dealing, La.
The training will last up to eight hours and will provide the necessary course of instruction in order to submit an application for the concealed handgun permit to the Louisiana State Police.
Participants will need to bring their own weapons, a minimum of 36 rounds of ammunition and a holster they can wear. They will also need to bring their own eye and ear protection, but these will be available at the range as well.
“We are pleased to be able to offer this firearms safety training to the residents of Bossier Parish,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington. “We’ve got some of the best firearms instructors around, and they will share their expertise so that our citizens can become certified to safely and legally carry concealed handguns.”
Participants must register in advance, and the class is limited to 30 persons.
The cost for the course is $100, and it is open to all Bossier Parish residents age 21 and older.
More information on the concealed handgun permit and instructions on how to complete the application can be found online at www.lsp.org/ handguns.html.
