"Basic Intro to Sidearms for Women Only" offered by Community Education

This spring, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Cook County Community Education and local citizens with firearm experience held the first-ever DNR “Basic Intro to Sidearms for Women Only.”
The class filled immediately and more women interested in this basic course signed up on a waiting list. It was agreed that another class should be held and it is coming up on Saturday, August 18, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (with a lunch break). Met at the Cook County Community Center 4H log cabin.
This class will introduce side arms to those who would like to become familiar with pistols. This is your opportunity to learn about and shoot various pistols. This is not a carry permit class. Participants do not need to bring a firearm, but ear and eye protection will be required and your responsibility for the afternoon range session.
The fee is $20.
Mary Manning, DNR Conservation officer will instruct. Space is limited to 25 participants. To register for this class, call Community Education at 387-2000.
