Retired West Virginia State Trooper Bob McComas will instruct a concealed weapons class Oct. 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Beaver Volunteer Fire Department.
McComas is NRA-certified and a former firearms instructor for State Police cadets. He will take students through the complete process from class instruction to firing range.
Once you have completed and passed the class, you will receive a concealed carry certificate that is required in order to obtain your permit license through a local sheriff's office.The class is also offered to those who do not want the license, but want to be more knowledgeable about the use and regulations of firearms.
Participants who want a license must be 21 years of age.
You are asked to bring your own ear protection and the firearm you will use. If you do not have a firearm, one will be provided.
Interested participants need to sign up before Oct. 8. The first class to be offered filled to full capacity within a few days, so call as soon as possible.
To register, call 304-222-0067. The fee is $50 and is due at the time of the class.
All proceeds will benefit Raleigh County Animal Rescue (RCAR).
On the day of the class, RCAR will have hot dogs, soft drinks, coffee and baked goods for sale.
