On July 11th, Sheriff Lain hosted an impromptu target practice session with the “Dillinger Thompson” and the former Sheriff of Boone County, Ernie Hudson who is a 1930’s gangster era historian.

Accompanying the Sheriff were former Indiana Jail Inspector Walt Smith and the current Boone Co. Sheriff, Ken Campbell. By the looks of his targets,  Sheriff Hudson demonstrated that he “still has it” when it comes to “takin’ out” bad guys.
