NEXT CLASS SATURDAY, JUNE 29 8:00 AM till 5:00 PM
Registration form is HERE.
Classroom: Humboldt County Extension Office Meeting Room. 727 Sumner Ave. That is at the west end of main street in downtown Humboldt. The classroom door is at the rear of the building. Park along 8th Street, north of Sumner or behind the building. No firearms are allowed in the classroom.
Range: Humboldt Rifle & Pistol Club Indoor Range, 13 8th St. South, Humboldt, IA
Cost: $55 for club members or spouses, $75 for non-members. Club memberships are available. Fees must be paid with registration. Registration is very limited. Paid registration holds a slot.
Information: This is a great class for a person who wants to learn how to shoot a handgun or as a refresher for someone who has done some shooting but isn’t sure they are doing it correctly. This class does meet qualifications for an Iowa Weapons Permit. Class will be conducted at the Humboldt County Extension Office Meeting Room. The range portion of the class will be done at the Humboldt Indoor Range.
Students need to bring the handgun that they plan to shoot and at least 100 rounds of ammo for that gun. The gun will need to be in a secure case for transport. If you don’t have access to a handgun we will try to accommodate, if we know ahead of time. So if a firearm is an issue you need to talk to me ASAP. You also need to bring eye and hearing protection and should wear a long sleeved shirt or jacket and a hat on the range, as during the live- fire portion of the class, protection from the flying brass would be beneficial.
Leave your firearm and all your equipment, including your cell phone, in your vehicle for the classroom segment. We will get everything when we move to the range in the afternoon. Instructors for the class will be several of the club’s NRA Certified Pistol Instructors. We will also have a member of local law enforcement present to go over the Iowa law segment of the class.
The goal of the class is “to teach the student basic knowledge, skills & attitude necessary for owning and using a handgun safely”. The fact that this is Iowa permit qualified training is secondary to that goal.
Additional Information: Class will run straight thru. There will be no break for lunch so if you want something to eat, bring it with you. There will be coffee and water in the meeting room and a refrigerator to store your lunch & whatever in.
