COVID Update

The Corona Virus Pandemic has greatly affected many programs offered to the public and we do regret that it affected the 2020 Williamson County Sheriffs Office Handgun Safety Class. We were directed to cancel our May 2020 class and were forced to greatly reduce the number of students that we were allowed to have in subsequent classes. We anticipate that this will be the case into and maybe throughout 2021. Please be assured that we are trying to accommodate the many requests that we have for the classes and will keep all applications on file. As we have availability, we will notify applicants on an “as received” basis. In the meantime, we hope that you will bear with us in this difficult time and, above all, be safe.

We would ask that you use the online form or download the printable form and follow the instructions on the form.
