Welcome to Cornwall Lady Guns

Cornwall Lady Guns was established back in September 2012 with the help of BASC who were running a campaign to encourage more women to take up shooting and that is how many of the ladies’ groups came about.

The contribution that women bring to the sport is invaluable. Cornwall Lady Guns was one of the first such clubs in Great Britain.

From meeting once a month we now meet weekly at various venues throughout Cornwall. We welcome all shooting abilities, whether you just want to have a go or are looking to improve your skills, it is great fun and a good way to socialise.
