A sheriff’s office instructor works with one of the students in a firearm safety course Saturday at the law enforcement shooting range on Jones Mountain Road. Captain Frank Reynolds with the sheriff’s office said the course is designed for self defense and home defense with a good bit of firearm safety included. “It wasn’t a marksmanship class,”he said. “It was more centered towards self defense.”
Sheriff’s office personnel offer the class periodically with another one planned tentatively for this Fall. Sheriff Donnie Craig was on hand and grilled lunch for the class members, while Magistrate Judge Allen Wigington offered a section on legal issues with firearms.
