Tameside Pistol Club

Post by Front Sight » Tue Apr 23, 2019 8:17 am

Tameside Pistol Club is in Mossley Greater Manchester and was founded back in the 70's when we were allowed pistols. We shot at a mill near Guide Bridge for many years until the venue was hijacked by another club so we decided to re-locate to a better environment. The website is www.tamesidepistol.club

Yesterday, Bank Holiday Monday, was one of our charity Bowling Pin Shoots and we raised £220 for ex-military personnel down on their luck. Pin Shoots are with either a .44Mag or .357 Mag underlever and you get six shots and five pins - against the clock. It is great fun. The comp was run in conjunction with Tameside Shooting Sports, a Heritage Pistol Centre and a club just a mile up the road from Tameside Pistol Club.

Yes, we have two gun clubs less than a mile apart in one village, greedy or what?

Bowling Pin shoots are great. I remember shooting pins in New York some years back on a range but it was all pistols.

I’m going off to go find myself. If I’m not back by the time I return, keep me here.
