On December 1, 2022 at the Friends of Bienville Parish Sheriff’s Appreciation Dinner, Sheriff John Ballance presented Deputy Scott Gill with the department’s Top Gun award for his performance at this year’s firearms competition. The course fire involved low light shooting while on the move. Each course of fire consisted of shooting a certain number of rounds in a given time limit. Although the targets were static, each target was either a 4 or 8 inch circle as opposed to the normal silhouette targets. Shooters were graded on safety, accuracy and time management. Sheriff Ballance said, “the purpose of that particular course of fire is to hone the skills of our deputies’ firearms skills while in an action setting as opposed to merely shooting from a particular station.” Deputy Gill was also presented a Glock 19 9mm pistol for winning this year’s competition.
