Girls with Guns

December 12, 2005

Sumter County - The Sumter County Sheriff's Office is holding a firearms course for women. The women will have classroom training and will then go out onto a firing range with a certified instructor.

Deputies hope that if the women ever have to use their guns, they'll know how. Chief Deputy, Eric Bryant says, "We try to take them out to the environment that is appropriate for testing out this new firearm they got during the holidays or whenever, or you would be surprised how many people have weapons and have never used them."

To sign up, call the Sumter County Sheriff's Office. The date of training has not been set.
