In southern Kansas, the Barton County Sheriff’s Office will conduct a concealed-carry firearms safety class on Saturday, April 12, 2014. This course is a prerequisite for Kansas concealed-carry application for a handgun license. The concealed-carry class is not a tactical handgun course, but it includes instruction on ways to secure and conceal a handgun, safe methods of loading and unloading handguns and what to expect when a handgun is used in self-defense, Sheriff Brian Bellendir said.

This class follows the Kansas Attorney General’s office guidelines and approved lesson plan. The instructors at the BCSO are all law enforcement officers of various backgrounds. This will provide meaningful training and experience the students, Bellendir said. Participants must furnish their own firearms and 50 rounds of ammunition. The class consists of two segments, classroom study and practical qualifications at the range.
