Gun safety workshop for women, families

A “Safe Use of Guns for Women and Families” workshop will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Agricultural Service Center, 7868 Hancock County 140, Findlay.
Designed to be an introduction to the world of guns and their safe use, the workshop is based on the 4-H project “Safe Use of Guns” and is designed to help families understand safety around firearms.
The class will be held in a low-pressure, non-threatening environment.
Participants will learn about the history and mechanical aspects of guns, learn how to safely handle guns, learn how to safely store and transport guns, and learn what to do when at a friend’s or neighbor’s house and a gun is present.
Participants will have an opportunity to practice safe gun handling techniques, and there will be a question-and-answer period. There is no fee for the workshop and it is not a certification program.
The program is being presented by the Hancock County 4-H Shooting Sports volunteers, and all presenters are certified 4-H shooting sports instructors. Participants do not need to be members of 4-H.
