A handgun safety program sponsored by the National Rifle Association (NRA) will be held Jan. 15 and 23, Feb. 6 and March 12 at the shooters' pistol range in New Milford.
The one-day program will offer knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for using or owning a handgun.
A national written examination and live-fire range qualification will be conducted.
Program completion is a requirement for application for a state permit in Connecticut and most other states.
The NRA will also offer a "Personal Protection In The Home" course May 14 featuring a talk on criminal and liability law by attorney Thomas Allingham.
