A new handgun self-defense class is being offered at Northland Pioneer College’s Show Low – White Mountain Campus in Arizona, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on saturday, July 19.

“Self-defense is more than a class – it’s a mindset. Students will learn how to think defensively, assess threats and learn avoidance techniques,” said NRA-certified instructor Richard Harris, who will be teaching the “Basic Self-Defense with a Handgun” course.

According to the White Mountain Independent, the $75 fee covers range time, as well as a student manual with all of the techniques and skills learned in the self-defense course. Students are required to bring their own firearm with holster, eye and ear protection, as well as 100 rounds of ammunition. Anybody under the age of 21 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

“In the ‘Basic Self-Defense with a Handgun’ course, students will learn dynamic shooting techniques and develop defensive marksmanship skills,” Harris said. “Students will learn to confidently and effectively use a handgun as a defensive tool to protect their lives and the lives of the people they care about.”

To register for the ‘Basic Self-Defense with a Handgun’ course, 524-7459 or (800) 266-7845 ext. 7459, or at any NPC location during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, or 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays. You must register at least three days before the start of the class.
