This month and next, Cabela’s is hosting a series of free classes at its Fort Mill store to educate customers on firearm safety.

The store’s staff, special guests and industry partners will lead the classes, the retailer said. No registration is required, and customers with all levels of experience are welcome. Class topics range from safe storage to proper cleaning.

The Fort Mill store is at 1000 Cabelas Drive, near Carowinds and off I-77.

Cabela’s said the classes are a part of a nationwide company effort to educate customers on the various aspects of responsible firearm ownership and safety.
