Beginning in 2016 the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office will offer a Women’s Firearm Safety Course (WFSC). The course format will include three, 2-hour lectures and one, 3-hour range date. The course will provide women with instruction on nomenclature, retention, operation and legal requirements. The WFSC is limited to 8-10 students per course. We will offer courses based on interest and availability.
Signing up for the course is easy, simply click the WFSC Application- Waiver link below, download and print the application, then bring the completed application to the Administrative Offices of the Jail located at 2526 New Calhoun Highway. There is no charge for the class; however, you will be required to furnish your own handgun (see the requirements listed on the application) and 50 rounds of ammunition for your weapon.
Questions concerning the Women’s Firearm Safety Course should be directed to Corporal Carrie Edge and the Training & Professional Development Division at 706-291-4111 ext. 8808.
