Killingholme Fullbore Club
The club is open again following vandalism incidents.
A silver Landrover Discovery registration number Y86 TOA was seen by 3 witnesses on Wednesday at about 6 o'clock in the vicinity of the club (when the arson took place) being driven without lights. It is important to identify this vehicle (either to rule its relevance in or out). Would members and the public please keep an eye out in the Killingholme / Ulceby/ Goxhill area to see if this can be further identified please?
Following the initial vandalism last Saturday ( at a cost of over £2000 ) another incident occurred. The police are now investigating with a view to prosecuting the individual responsible and it is the intention of the club and our insurers to pursue the offender relentlessly to recover our losses to the extent of bankruptcy if necessary.
As a result of this incident we will be installing enhanced security measures .
The Killingholme Full Bore Club exists to promote the sport of shooting. It is a friendly club with a mature membership in the high fifties. Propsepctive members are welcome.
The club has eleven firing points shooting over 20 and 25 metres from covered, bench rest firing points.

With very few exceptions all firearms which can be legally held may be used on the range, embracing small bore rifle, (.22 rimfire), gallery rifle, and full bore rifle. Black powder firearms are popular with members, both pistol and rifle, and there is an increasing trend toward long-barreled revolvers.
Club competitions for members are held throughout the year for various types of firearm, with medals awarded for top places.
Killingholme Full Bore Club is affiliated to the National Rifle Association. It is owned by the members, and run by an elected, unpaid committee. The club is financially sound and is proud of an unblemished safety record.
Full members enjoy access to the range 7 days a week, fifty-two weeks a year.
