Firearms Training this Weekend at Big Hollow

Des Moines County Conservation Director Chris Lee says there is still room available for this weekend’s Firearms Training.

It’s a two day course that will be offered at the Big Hollow shooting range near Sperry. The class meets the carry license training requirements for many states including Iowa, Illinois, Florida and Arizona.

After you complete the course this Saturday and Sunday you’ll qualify to apply for carry permits in your state of residence.

For more information on this weekend’s Firearm Training you can go to the Des Moines County Conservation Website or call 319-572-1564.

The cost is $300 per person or $450 for two, which includes lunch, drinks, range fees, safety equipment and an extensive student packet of materials.
