The much-anticipated re-opening of the Camden County Shooting Range is finally going to become a reality. Sheriff Tony Helms says, after facing a seven-percent budget cut when he first took office earlier this year, several different options were looked into so the range could be opened up again.
Under plans to re-open the range, starting tomorrow, range cards can be purchased by anyone lawfully able to possess a firearm through the sheriff’s department. The cost is twenty-five dollars and allows for using the range five times. Reserves, who have been trained as range safety officers, will be present at no cost to the county. For the time being, the range will only be open from 9-5 on Wednesdays and Sundays.
