The Lustleigh (Home Guard 1944) Rifle Club, to give it’s full name, traces its origins back to 1944 and continues unbroken to this day.
Not many people realise that the length of the main room of the new Village Hall (built 2005) is designed to meet the requirements of the National Small-bore Rifle Association to permit Competition Shooting. (The width is designed to fit the staging units)
The Show provided funds for the Rifle Club to purchase spotting scopes and shooting jackets in smaller sizes to cater for the growing increase of ladies joining the club. Precisely what that indicates, I’ll leave to your imagination.
Fancy a go at target shooting?
