REGISTER NOW FOR THE SATURDAY, NOV. 7 NRA BASIC PISTOL CLASS

Because of the overwhelming number of inquiries she is receiving, the Lambs Creek Sportsman’s Club has approved Instructor Marilyn Jones’ request to hold another National Rifle Association Basic Pistol Shooting Course at its facility in Mansfield.

The class is being offered from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7 at the pistol range at the Lambs Creek Sportsman’s Club at 339 Sportsman’s Club Road, Mansfield, Pa. The course is open to novice and experienced pistol shooters and owners.

Participants will learn how to safely handle and shoot a pistol, as well as how to clean and store a firearm. Other topics to be discussed are: pistol mechanisms and operation, building pistol shooting skills, and pistol selection and use.

A shooter can bring his or her own pistol or revolver for the class and 150 to 200 rounds of ammunition or borrow a .22 long rifle (LR) pistol from the instructor and bring 150 to 200 rounds of .22 long rifle (LR) pistol ammunition for it. Participants are also asked to bring their own eye and ear protection.

Students who successfully pass the course will receive the NRA Basic Pistol Course Completion Certificate, materials about gun safety, the NRA Basic Pistol Student Handbook, the NRA Marksmanship book and other handouts to assist in keeping a record of firearms, how to buy the right firearm, to keep your skills up and how to apply for a Tioga County Concealed Carry Permit.

The fee for this eight-hour course is $50 per person to be paid in advance to cover the handbook, handouts and lunch with water, soda and coffee to drink. The class is limited to 12 men and women. Only four spaces remain.

To register or for answers to questions about this class or to borrow a pistol for the day and/or eye and ear protection, contact Marilyn Jones at (570) 549-2794 or by email at jones_mk@yahoo.com to get started on the road to being a safe gun owner.
