The James City County Police Department will be offering four free firearm safety classes to the public. Each one session class will cover basic safety, handling, storage and basic laws related to carrying a concealed handgun in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The class does not include hands-on training and personal firearms should be left at home in a secure location.
This course meets the requirement for the “Documentation of Proof of Handgun Competency” as part of the VA Concealed Handgun Permit application process, and a certificate of attendance will be provided to attendees.
The classes will be held on May 23, 31 and June 15, 27 from 6:30-9 p.m. All classes will be held at the Law Enforcement Center at 4600 Opportunity Way.
