Texas Baptist Church Will Host Concealed Handgun Class

DUMAS (February 9, 2013)-- Calvary Baptist Church in Dumas plans to host a concealed handgun class as a community service because there is so much interest in self-defense and protecting families.

The Rev. Brad Foster told the Amarillo Globe-News a state-certified instructor will teach the 10-hour class in the fellowship hall on March 2.

Foster said two more classes are planned and that the church will continue to offer the classes as long as there is interest.

He said interest has come from more than church members as people from across the region have expressed interest.

More than half of those enrolled are women and many are teachers.

Foster said there has been little negative feedback about Calvary hosting the class.
