Free basic handgun course..
Greene County Sheriff’s Office offers a free handgun safety course every other month as long as there is a continued interest.

The classes are offered to those 13 and older, and teaches safe handling, usage, shooting fundamentals, proper selection, laws and the concealed permit process.

Students receive a certified certificate of completion, which may be used to apply for the Virginia concealed handgun permit through the Circuit Court.

For more information contact Steve Keene at (434) 566-8774.


The above Basic handgun course is excellent for those needing a beginner course or a fresher on laws, it also serves to satisfy the states requirement to obtain a CHP.

This is a non live fire class.

And you don't have to be a Greene county resident to attend.

I have no dog in this fight
