The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is holding an Introduction to Handguns class online Tuesday, Sept. 8 from 6-7:30 p.m. The course is free and open to all ages.
Handguns offer a viable alternative to hunters who prefer to travel light or might have physical limitations or other restrictions regarding handling or carrying rifles. They can also be used for recreational target shooting.
This program will introduce shooters to handguns who may have just purchased one or who might be looking into purchasing one. The class will also help those who might feel uncomfortable or unsure about handguns feel more at ease with using them.
This virtual online program will cover what to do to get started shooting handguns. It will be presented by the staff at MDC’s August A. Busch Shooting Range and Outdoor Education Center in Defiance. It will go over handgun fundamentals, including handgun actions, operation, safety measures, maintenance, and safe storage. An interactive Q&A opportunity with MDC staff will be offered after the course.
Introduction to Handguns is a free virtual program open to all ages, but advanced online registration is required at https://short.mdc.mo.gov/ZBW. Attendees will receive an invitation by email from the MDC Event Management System with a WebEx program link the day before the program.
