GIBSON CITY — The Gibson City Police Department is re-opening its shooting range for 2013 and has scheduled three home self-defense courses for this spring and summer.
The courses will be offered May 18, June 15 and July 27. The course is designed to teach basic skills for proper gun use. Instructors include Gibson City Police Chief Steve Cushman.
The eight-hour class includes instruction on choosing the right gun, proper sight alignment, current laws, home awareness and range time.
The cost to attend is $50. To reserve a spot, contact the Gibson City Police Department at 784-8666.
In other news, an “open range” time starts March 28 at 6 p.m., running every other Thursday through the fall. There is a $5 fee to help cover the cost of targets and materials supplied.
“Open range provides any opportunity for shooting enthusiasts to come to the range to practice, zero firearms or receive instruction from certified instructors,” a news release said.
