EWC Highlights Upcoming Basic Handgun Proficiency class

April 18, 2023

The Community Education office at Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington announces a Basic Handgun Proficiency class to be held on Saturday, May 13, 2023 with a cost of $100. The class will be held on the Torrington campus in CTEC room 101 from 8:00 – 12:00 pm and the remainder of the class will be held at the Torrington Police Department firing range until 5:00 pm.

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 an extensive 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. You may bring your handgun and ammunition on-campus, but they must be locked separately in your vehicle. Feel free to bring water, and snacks to the range.

Successful completion and testing of this class will fulfill the state requirement to apply for a Concealed Carry Permit in Wyoming.

To register for this class or others, contact the EWC Community Education office at 307.532.8323.
