Sheriffs Citizen Academy Shoots It Up At Gun Training Range

The Cullman County Sheriff’s Citizen’s Academy recently took a Saturday break from the classroom studies to receive full spectrum firearm training.

Citizen Academy students took a trip to the Cullman Law Enforcement gun training range near the end of Bolte Road. They left several pounds of brass on the ground.
