Registration for APD firearms course extended

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police hope to teach gun safety to as many people as possible.

They extended the application deadline for Saturday's firearms training course, hoping to fill the remaining few spots.

You have until noon Thursday to apply.

Police will run a background check, unless you already have a concealed carry permit.

Qualified police instructors will teach the course, and the District Attorney will teach Georgia gun laws.

Albany Police Media Manager Phyllis Banks said "More and more people are purchasing weapons. Specifically husbands are buying for their wives and want to make sure they know how to properly operate the weapons.  And really know the safety features."

To take the free A-P-D course, you must furnish your own handgun and ammunition.

You also have to wear ear and eye protection and a ball cap.

To get more information call 483-6298, the deadline is now noon Thursday.
