Shooters in east Lancashire who are looking for an airgun club are being offered a taste of paradise.
The Burnley and District Air Rifle League started in the 1960s, but sadly closed its facilities in 2005. However, the club has now been resurrected, offering a .177 10-metre discipline.
It meets each Tuesday at 7.30pm in the Paradise Working Mens Club in Martin Street in Burnley. New members are encouraged to come along and shoot. It costs just £3, and anyone coming along can either bring their own rifle or use a club gun, such as a Walther LGR .177 10-metre match rifle.
Everything is provided, including instruction, and the ethos of the club is to create a social atmosphere to accompany the rifle shooting. To aid participation a seating position if offered, so members can use a table to assist aiming the rifle.
If you are interested then please contact Warren Simpson on 079 0695 6918 or check out the club’s Facebook page.
