Enhancing Firearms Expertise: Join HCSO's S.A.F.E. Training

Sheriff Al Nienhuis Presents: S.A.F.E. Training on August 25

In the pursuit of promoting responsible firearm ownership, Sheriff Al Nienhuis is proud to introduce the next session of Situational Awareness Firearms Training (S.A.F.E.). This exclusive program is tailored for current concealed weapon permit-holders in Hernando County, offering interactive and comprehensive firearms training.

Empowering Responsible Firearm Owners

With over 21,500 law-abiding citizens possessing concealed weapon permits in Hernando County, the responsibility of carrying extends beyond legality. Equipping citizens with essential knowledge and skills in firearm handling is paramount. In response, the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office has developed a specialized one-day training course to address this need within the community.

Immersive Learning Experience

S.A.F.E. offers participants a diverse curriculum, featuring immersive (firearms) simulation training that engages and educates. From firearm safety protocols to practical range instruction, attendees will gain a comprehensive understanding of responsible firearm use. Each participant will have the opportunity to fire 100 rounds from their personal firearm under the guidance of certified firearms instructors from the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.
