Gun safety seminar on tap soon

Handgun safety programs sponsored by the National Rifle Association (NRA) will be held March 12 and 27, April 23 and May 7 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.
