Shooting Sports Center open, emphasizes safety
30,000-square-foot facility available to public
Georgia Southern senior David Tullius, 21, of Pittsburg, Pa., left, gets some tips from Mike Russell while completing the approved user process at the newly opened Shooting Sports Education Center on campus. Tullius is one of about 30 members of a student-driven shooting sports club and is looking forward being able to stay on campus for club activities. Those interested in using the center must complete a process that includes watching a video, completing a quiz, and demonstrating the fundamentals of gun safety, as well as passing a criminal background check.
“Notice: You are in a school safety zone.” Beginning with a sign in the parking lot, the Shooting Sports Education Center at Georgia Southern University emphasizes rules about who can shoot and how weapons are carried. The facility for indoor firearms shooting and archery is now open to those GSU students and members of the public who comply.
