***OPEN RANGE DAY***

A reminder that the Barrow County Sheriff's Office range will be open this Saturday May 6th, 2017.

There will be a $10.00 charge per person to shoot. The monies collected are used to replace targets and upgrade our range. The Sheriff's Office will have instructors on sight to assist and make sure everyone stays safe while shooting.

We ask that the public bring their own firearms and ammunition to shoot. We will shoot pistols from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. Rifles will be shot from 11:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. We want our young people to learn how to safely shoot so anyone under the age of 18 needs to be accompanied by an adult to shoot so families are welcome.

The range is located at 1059 Briscoe Mill Road Bethlehem GA 30620. We hope to have a large crowd so come and enjoy the day with others who like to shoot and fellowship
