EWC Highlights change to the Upcoming basic Handgun Proficiency class

The Community Education office at Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington announces changes to the Spring Semester Handgun Proficiency class.  Dates for the class have been scheduled for either Saturday, March 5 or Saturday, March 19 and class times are 8:00am-5:00pm.  The location for the Handgun Proficiency class has been changed to the new in-door shooting range at the Goshen County Gun Club—this change in location will prevent class cancellation due to inclement weather. For the convenience of being out of the weather and having such a safe shooting range the cost of the class has been increased.  Individuals who have already registered for the class that appeared in the Spring brochure will be contacted by either Susie or Donna concerning the changes and to verify date preferences.  An additional class will be scheduled on a Saturday in May and an advanced handgun proficiency class is being planned for June or July.


Wyoming Concealed Carry Permit Class

Whether you are simply wanting to develop or improve your handgun safety skills and proficiency, or intend to apply for a Wyoming Concealed Carry Permit, this class will meet your needs. TPD Sgt. Connelly will provide instruction on core fundamentals of handgun safety, proper handling, transportation and storage, as well as handgun shooting specifics such as proper stance, correct grip, sight alignment, proper trigger press, and sight picture. All participants in the class will experience a 2 hour session of classroom instruction with the remainder of this one day class participating in live-fire range sessions. Participants are responsible for providing their own handgun, holster and ammunition. Holsters, eye protection, ear protection and a hat with a brim are required equipment for the live-fire range sessions.  Plan on bringing water, snacks and a lunch to the range.

This class will be held on Saturday March 5 or Saturday March 19 from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. The cost of this class is $100 and includes range fees.
