On Wednesday, Sept. 5, the Lake City Sportman’s Club held an event for students who completed their firearms safety course and their families.
But before dinner was served, the club took a moment to honor Ed Bauman, who has been teaching firearm safety for 50 years.
Bauman told the audience that he still remembered taking the class himself in 1955 from a highway patrolman.
Bauman began teaching the course in Delano, Minn., in 1968. He continued to do so after moving to the Lake City area in 1972 and ever since.
