Firearms Safety Course for Hendry County Residents

The Hendry County Sheriff’s Office is providing a free basic firearms course designed to establish a strong foundation for individuals new to firearms. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s (FDLE) Local Firearm Safety Training Program has provided HCSO with a grant funding under Chapter 2023-18, Section 37 to provide this program to our citizens.

This course is tailored for those with limited or no prior firearm experience and incorporates a blend of classroom instruction, live-range exercises, firearm handling, manipulation exercises, and recent changes to concealed carry statutes. It will also provide Stop the Bleed training and use of a state of the art firearms simulator. Participants will receive guidance from certified firearms instructors with extensive experience in law enforcement marksmanship throughout the course.

Upon successful completion of the course, attendees will attain a HCSO Basic Firearms Safety Certification. This certificate can be 
used when applying for a Concealed Weapons Permit if desired.
