Sometimes I'm just Proud of Louisiana!

Registration is under way for children ages 8 to 12 to participate in the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office "First Gun Course." The four hour class will be offered from 8 a.m. to noon Dec. 17 and again on Jan. 7. Designed for children only, the course provides basic instruction for those who may never have fired a gun, but want to be able to use one safely. It's also recommended for children who will receive a new BB gun or hunting rifle for Christmas.

Children are welcome to attend the course with BB guns, pellet guns, .22 rifles, and small caliber shotguns. No high-powered rifles will be allowed. Only BB's and .22 ammunition will be supplied by the training academy. Through generous donations by local citizens, Wal-Mart, and local wholesalers, children without a gun can use one supplied at the academy. All children will shoot both fixed targets and skeet. The course is free, but registration is required. Space is limited, and Caddo Parish residents will be given preference. An adult must remain with the child throughout the course. Classes will be held at the Sheriff's Regional Law Enforcement Training Academy, located at 15639 Highway One South.

Call Linda Richardson at (318) 681-0735 to register and learn more.
