Let's face it, the world isn't nearly as safe as it was when we were kids, and though it's sad to say, women are especially vulnerable in the society we live in today.

That's why it's really important that women have the ability to defend themselves should the need ever arise. That's why the Caddo Sheriff's Office will hold a women's firearms class, on Saturday, February 23, from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm.

This is not an introductory class, but for those women who have some experience with firearms.  There will be fundamental drills, movement and marksmanship among the topics covered.

Each participant will need to bring with them 100 rounds of ammunition, a holster or purse that is their common method of carry. If the weapon is carried in a purse, there will need to be an integrated holster in the purse or a trigger guard cover.

The class is FREE, but limited to the first 12 women students. To secure your place in the class, contact Deputy Andrea Claiborne at 318-681-0735 to register.
