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.

News: Sadly we report the death of our club secretary Jacqui Duffill on 22nd March 2014.
Jacqui was our club secretary for many year keeping us all in order and organising the team.
She died after a very short unexpected illness, husband to David Duffill a club member of some 37 years.
It's with great sadness we have to report the passing of our name sake Mr John Walton better known as
"El' Presidente" as he called himself.
He passed peacefully on the evening of Monday 5th September 2011 Aged 89.
We are humbled that his family choose to mention us on his grave stone.
As part of John Will he bequeathed a brand new rifle to us on 14th February 2012 we had presented to the club by his son David Walton a brand new Air Arms S400 MPR rifle with case and dive bottle. The rifle is light and as an Ambi stock so as many members as possible can use it. Plus David Walton presented to the club the John Walton Trophy, which will use to organise an club competition.
