The Barrow County Sheriff’s Office invites area residents to practice their shooting skills during the department’s monthly open range day.
The Barrow County Sheriff’s Office began opening their firing range to the public once a month earlier this year.
“We look forward to having our citizens come out to the range and practice their firearms skills with us,” said Sgt. David Aderhold, head of the Sheriff’s Office’s Training Unit. “Opening our range to the general public provides a safe place for folks to shoot in a controlled environment.”
Citizens may bring their own weapons and ammunition and have the opportunity to learn from certified firearms instructors.
Admission to the range is $10 per session. Proceeds will be used to upgrade and maintain the range.
For those interested in learning to shoot, a four hour block of personalized instruction is available for $75. Proceeds from instructional fees will also be used for range upgrades and maintenance.
The next open range date is scheduled for Saturday, August 7, from 8 a.m. until noon.
The Barrow County Sheriff’s Office strictly prohibits the use of any armor-piercing ammunition and tracer rounds.
For more information or directions to the firearms range, please contact Sgt. David Aderhold at (770) 307-3080, extension 3936.
