Carpenters' arms air rifle club.

It's in the writing at the bottom of the picture

Obviously, I can read that but I don’t know anything about the club .

OK, 

Wasn't sure you had spotted the writing as it said Carpenter's arms, not Bell

Wouldn't surprise me if it was bell target.  There used to be lots of local leagues.  I used to shoot in one 20 years ago.

I see the targets were bells, not the name of the club. :yahoo: I totally got the wrong end of the stick :lol:

😀 no worries. I only know about because of old boys telling me . My neighbour used to do it and he’s on his 70’s. I’d ask him but he’s a miserable old *** 😂😂
