New River Community College will offer a handgun safety class on Tuesday, May 23, and Thursday, May 25.
Both class meetings will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. in room 148 at the NRV Mall site in Christiansburg. Range time will be offered on the Saturday following the class.
The cost of the course is $60.
The six-hour classroom portion of the course, instructed by Joey Williams, is required. However, range time is optional. The class is intended for individuals who are applying for a handgun permit through the courts, and will cover topics such as the nomenclature of revolvers and/or semi-automatic handguns and safety issues related to handgun ownership. Participants will also learn how to care for, maintain and store their handguns.
