Handgun safety program sponsored by the National Rifle Association (NRA) will be held Sunday, Nov. 21 and Dec. 11 and 19 at the shooters' pistol range in New Milford.

The one-day programs 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.
