Pass this along to anyone interested in taking our next
Oklahoma Handgun License class,
formerly called “Concealed Carry”
Next class is Saturday, March 16th, at 9:30 a.m. at Cedar Creek Range (36 miles east of Tulsa).
Class is 8 hours, so attendees need to bring a lunch. We take a 30 minute lunch break around noon.
Also required: a hard bill ball cap, semi-auto pistol and one box of 50 rounds of ammo.
Cost is $60 plus a $5 range fee.
We provide targets and eye and ear protection for those who don’t have their own.
We do have rental guns in 9mm, .45cal and .22. All are semi-autos. If you qualify with the semi-auto you can carry semi or revolver. If you only qualify with a revolver that is all you can carry.
We have ammo available which varies in cost depending on caliber (.22 $7 a box, 9mm $25 a box, .40 and .45 is $28 a box). Cost could change due to problems replacing ammo during the current shortage and we only sell to attendees who need a box for the class, not to the public.
If interested contact us via telephone to sign up. We require $35 in advance to hold a seat as the class size is limited.

Some basic safety instructions from the NRA website here (much more info on site)
|1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.
|2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.
|3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.
Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.
