Central Arizona College is offering a pair of Firearms Safety and Proficiency community education classes during the fall semester at the Superstition Mountain Campus in Apache Junction, Ariz.

The first class will take place on Oct. 23 and Oct. 28, while members of the community will have a second opportunity to register for the course on Dec. 11 and Dec. 16.
The first session of each class will take place from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. at the Superstition Mountain Campus. The second day of each class will be held from 5-8 p.m. at an area shooting range. The fee for the class is $65.

Taught by Eugene Wilson, the Firearms Safety and Proficiency course is designed to train participants in the safe handling of a weapon, personal safety in a threatening situation, and the laws that pertain to legally discharging a firearm.

The course also is a first step in obtaining a concealed carry permit that is acceptable in many states that require such documentation.

Wilson is an Arizona Department of Public Safety and NRA-certified instructor in the disciplines of rifle, pistol, shotgun, muzzle-leading rifle, home firearm safety and personal protection.

He is a lifelong hunter and marksman and is licensed by Arizona Game and Fish as a hunter education instructor.

He previously competed and qualified in three matches for the privilege of purchasing a World War II-era M1 Grande rifle from the United States Army.

    This is refreshing to see and not surprising from my one time home of 12 years. Go Arizona and go Jan Brewer, we’re certainly with you.
