GSL trap team to practice in Brownton
The Glencoe-Silver Lake Trapshooting and Skeet team will be able to practice in the Brownton Area Civic Center — but only with a laser trainer.
The Brownton City Council, at its Tuesday, Feb. 7, meeting, approved a request from Doug Fegley to use the former wrestling room of the old school building to practice with a laser simulator.
But the City Council asked for safety assurances before it gave its nod of approval to the request. Typically, firearms are not allowed in municipal buildings.
Fegley said that while students will be using their actual firearms, he and other adult volunteers check the weapons before they are brought into the building to make sure there is no ammunition or other safety concerns. He said live shooting is only done on approved gun ranges.
The Council did ask that Fegley and the students use a rear access door the old wrestling room to minimize disruption of other activities that may be going on in the building.
