Gun class to be offered


The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with the North Central Washington Gun Club, will host a handgun safety course on Saturday, March 26, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the NCW gun range in East Wenatchee.

The class is open to those 21 and older who have no restrictions on gun ownership.

Sheriff Harvey Gjesdal stated that there has been a spike in the number of people applying to purchase handguns and to obtain concealed pistol licenses.

The goal, Gjesdal noted, is to reduce the likelihood of injury or death by improper handling of handguns.

The objective of the class is to educate citizens on proper handgun nomenclature, safety skills, and proper techniques. There will be a live-fire portion of the class to allow students to practice their safety skills on the range.

The course will be led by a National Rifle Association-certified handgun instructor and Douglas County Sheriff’s Office firearms instructors.

Anyone interested is asked to call Guy Miner at 509-664-9582.
