SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Residents of the Savannah area will soon be able to sign up for gun safety classes being offered by the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office.

Officials say the monthly, three-hour courses will focus on teaching basic firearm skills and safety procedures. The classes are for both civilian gun owners and those planning to buy their first guns.

The sheriff’s office says the gun courses will be scheduled for the third Saturday of each month. Enrollment costs $25 per person.

Officials say they plan to keep class sizes small, with no more than 10 people in each month’s course.
