Walton Lions is mainly a Bell Target Shooting Club at 6 yards. Using .177 Air Rifles, or Bell Target rifles.
Based in Great Barr, Birmingham.
We mainly shoot in the Birmingham and District Air Rifle League (Bell Target). Some take part in Postal Competitions.
Although we do have the facilities to offer paper target shooting at 6 yard and 10 metre.
Most of the shooting is done at 6 yards with a MAX of 7 ft lb powered .177 Air Rifles.
10 metre must be by arangement in advance.
No telescopic sights are allowed due to the short distance of our ranges. Diopter and open sights only.
