Concealed Handgun course Sept. 11 & 12

Released: 09/01/2006

LSU Alexandria Continuing Education is offering the Louisiana Concealed Handgun Permit & Renewal course beginning Monday, September 11.

Individuals who apply to the Department of Public Safety for a permit to carry a concealed weapon are required by law to demonstrate competence with a handgun. The course is approved by the Department of Public Safety and Corrections to meet that requirement.

The course also meets the requirements of those applying for renewal of their permit.

It consists of nine hours of instruction, including two hours of live-range fire, and proper handgun-cleaning procedures. The course is taught by a POST-certified instructor. The live-range portion will be at an off-campus location.

Participants must provide a gun and ammunition at the live-range portion of the class. They also must be at least 21 years of age.

The cost is $80 plus a $10 non-refundable registration fee. The course will be held Monday, Sept. 11, and Tuesday, Sept. 12, from 5:45-9:15 p.m. each day. The range date will be Sept. 15 or Sept. 17 at a time to be announced.
