Officers attending must bring with them the attached notarized application for certification. Currently there is no notary on staff.

Officers must also have a holster that fits securely outside their pants.

Also please note any retiree wishing to qualify with a revolver must have a six shot revolver.

Frangible 40 cal. 9 mm and 38 cal. ammunition will be made available. Any retiree qualifying with another caliber handgun must have lead free ammunition.

ALL ammo used at the range is green, which means NO LEAD at all. If you bring your own ammo, it MUST be green.  Some attendees have brought firearms for which the range did not have ammo, and because their ammo was not green, they had to utilize a weapon borrowed from the range.

Officers should have the application for certification notarized prior to attending the class in the event no notary is available on their scheduled date.
