Llandudno and Colwyn Bay Marksmen
This website is to provide information for interested people and both potential and existing members. Gallery Shooting (our type of shooting) is based on technique and skill rather than on strength, and as such is open to a wide range of people of all shapes, ages and sizes.
At LCBMarksmen we pride ourselves on been known as a friendly, welcoming club with not only great shooting facilities but an equally good social side.
We are on Facebook and Twitter, follow us for information on upcoming open nights, competitions and much more shooting related general information.
We are an indoor range, based in North Wales on the out skirts of Llandudno.
At LCBMarksmen we shoot a variety of calibres such as .22; .358; .38; .44. We use semi automatic rifles, under lever rifles and long barrelled pistols and revolvers. Members shoot at a variety of distances up to 20 metres at both static and moving or turning targets. For more information on exactly what disciplines we shoot please click on this link disciplines.
As well as the range we have a social area and an area to work on our guns. We have a small shop selling a selection of drinks and refreshments as well as ammunition and targets.
Many members practice and shoot competitions within the club and also across the UK and Europe. In the past we have produced several champions and members of the Welsh National Team. Others compete against themselves, just aiming to gradually improve and have fun.
At LCBM we are a very welcoming bunch of men and women. We run several open nights during the year to enable people who think they may like to learn to shoot the opportunity to have a go under supervision. We also run occasional supervised evening shoots for local businesses and organisations like the scouts. If you think these may be of interest to you, please click on this link for more information and to contact us Open nights and Corporation shoots.
Current and future plans The range is in the process of being extended from approx. 20 meters to 25 meters, with plans to further modernise the club house and stores. We plan to improve and develop our training program for probationary members. We are also looking to extend our opening hours and develop a section for young people of ages between 11 and 16.
Our history LCBM was formed in 1970 as a pistol club. Over the years we have developed to a wider range of shooting disciplines. We have a rich history of success in inter-club and national competitions and are well known at Bisley – the home of shooting.
The club has always been owned by the members and run on land rented from Mostyn Estates. We are a non-profit organisation and the current elected committee is ensuring all revenues are ploughed back into improving the club and its facilities. We currently have over 40 members and growing.
