New Pistols In Use

Since the formation of the Nelson Pistol Club members have had to use the Crossman-type pistol, a variation of the air pistol, as a target weapon. Recently, however, the club was given a permit to buy the proper target pistols and these are now being used on an open-air range. These pistols, of 22 calibre, are far more accurate.

The top pistol is of Czechoslovakian make, and the lower, a British Webley-Scott


Club armourer, Cyril Blumsky, lays down the law before members Gus Lefrantz, Ray Mitchell, Laurie Staig, Ron Carmody, Colin Booth and Joe Wallace are permitted to shoot.
