Last weekend to utilize Bossier sheriff’s rifle range

Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington would like to remind residents the rifle range will be open one more weekend on Oct. 11-12 for use by the public to sight in their rifles.

The Bossier Sheriff’s Office range has been open to the public since Sept. 27.

The range, located at 2955 Old Plain Dealing Road in Plain Dealing, will be open this Friday and Saturday with four times for which shooters can sign up (8 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.)

The range features 12 shooting lanes with targets at 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards; basic targets will be available at the range, but shooters are welcome to bring their own paper targets. Bring your own weapons and ammunition, since none will be available at the range. You'll also need to bring your own hearing and eye protection, but these will be available at the range, if needed.

"I am pleased to offer this service to our residents so they can sight in their rifles at our range in a safe environment, especially as we approach hunting season," said Sheriff Julian Whittington.

Call the North Louisiana Criminal Justice Academy at 965-3525 to register. The Rifle Range is located just south of the North Louisiana Criminal Justice Academy on Old Plain Dealing Road approximately 12 miles from the town of Benton.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
