• Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) / “HR218” Handgun Qualification

A partnership between the Smoking Gun Range and Training Center and the Box Elder Police Department 

Important - Third Monday of every month, 7:00pm - 9:00pm - After purchase please call to confirm dates.


The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) , sometimes referred to as “HR218” allows certain former criminal justice professionals the opportunity to carry concealed handguns nationwide after meeting statute requirements. This event provides an opportunity to complete one of those requirements, the South Dakota state handgun qualification test. Attendees will fire the same handgun qualification test required annually of all South Dakota officers, according to the guidelines established by the South Dakota Law Enforcement Officers Standards and Training Commission. Three (3) attempts to pass the test will be allowed on any one evening. Upon successful completion, attendees will receive a wallet card verifying qualification.

The qualification test can be found here: http://dci.sd.gov/LinkClick.aspx?  

1) Prospective attendees must carefully review LEOSA requirements to determine their eligibility. Helpful resources are available from the Fraternal Order of Police at http://www.fop.net/legislative/issues/hr218/hr218faq.pdf, or the National Rifle Association at http://le.nra.org/leosa/frequently-askedquestions.aspx 

2) Positive identification via state or military issued ID, -and- proof of prior LE service meeting eligibility are required. Ammunition/Equipment Requirements: Serviceable handgun with two magazines, 150rds of ammunition (maximum), holster, baseball cap, eye & ear protection. Please note that LEOSA rules require qualification with the type of firearm that will be carried, semi-automatic or revolver. Previous attendees have had best results testing with the same full-size handgun carried on duty.
