Location: To be announced
Times: Sep. 9, 8:00am to 12:00pm
Sep 9, 1:00pm to 5:00pm
Sep. 10, 8:00am to 12:00pm
Cost: $25.00 per person

Due to the increasing number of Union County residents purchasing handguns, the Union County Anti-Drug Coalition is partnering with both local law enforcement agencies to provide an 8 hour Handgun Safety Course.

The course will include 4 hours of class time and 4 hours of range practice for $25.00. These classes will be taught by certified firearm instructors. The class will cover civil liability, cleaning and loading your weapon, legal responsibilities, and scenario based instruction on when to use or NOT use a handgun.

After successful completion of the 4 hour class, you will then register for your 4 hours of instruction at a firing range. You must be legally able to possess a firearm and you MUST register (name and type of weapon) in advance for the class. You will need you bring your UNLOADED weapon to class.

Classes are limited to 20 participants and will be held on the following dates: September 9th, 8:00a.m. 12:00p.m. September 9th, 1:00p.m.- 5:00p.m. September 10th, 8:00a.m. 12:00p.m. Weekend classes will be made available if needed.

Please call the UCADC at 706-439-6058 to register.

Union County is a rural county steeped in the tradition of hunting. So it's not much surprise to find that Union County does not have any ordinances concerning firearms. State laws define any limits there may be.

There's no limitations on how far away from another's home they have to be. There is a limitation of being no closer than 50 yards within a public road. And the gun holder is not allowed to point the gun at another person unless it is in defense of life, health and property.

If you attend the safety course, I bet they'd be willing to answer questions concerning handguns and other firearms that aren't already covered in the class.

I guess people will start being more careful when walking around. Personally I wouldn't mind having a gun myself. A small one of course.

Roger - Directions to the Firing Range:

Take 515 (towards Blue Ridge) from Blairsville. Go to 325/Nottley Dam Rd. and turn right. (At the Shell Station - which is now closed)

Cross Dean Gap Rd. then go about 1/4 mile - down the hill there will be 2 gates at a grave rd. on left. - turn left. Go right at the first fork in the road and pass behind the long barn to the range.

Go to http://www.drugfreeunioncounty.org and all info is there.

Good luck Mr. Roger - Woof, Woof PS This may be a "private" range
