[quote]I am often alone or with our children due to my husband’s work schedule. Last year, I attended the Law Enforcement Wives Handgun Class. I believe it is essential to have proper knowledge of a firearm to protect ourselves and our loved ones while our husbands are at work.

The exercises and scenarios in the class were realistic and very involved, which was important to me. After the class, I felt more confident about how to handle my firearm. I hope to take this class each year to keep my skills sharp and to learn new tactics for different situations. Thank you for doing this class. – Brittany[/quote]
