If you’re in the Navajo County area in Arizona and are looking to qualify for a concealed carry permit, check out the pistol gun safety training course set for 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20, at Northland Pioneer College’s Snowflake – Silver Creek Campus.

According to the White Mountain Independent, the cost of attending the “National Rifle Association Basic Pistol” workshop is $75, and it will be taught by NRA-certified instructor Richard Harris.

Participants are required to be at least 21 years of age. They also have to bring unloaded handguns and 50 rounds of ammunition, leaving them secured in their vehicles. Guns are also required to have holsters.

If you successfully complete this class, you’ll be qualified to obtain an Arizona Department of Public Safety Concealed Carry Weapons permit for an additional $60. Renewal permits are $43.

As the White Mountain Independent reports, Harris will also be teaching a “Basic Self Defense with a Handgun” course at the Snowflake campus on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The $75 fee includes range time and a student manual with all the techniques and skills learned in the self-defense course.
