Dungannon Smallbore Rifle Club held it’s first annual meeting on Monday 14th of October 1963, with 22 members recorded at the meeting.

Although this is the first officially minuted record of the club’s existence it is known that target shooting took place in the town both during and after the Second World War.

By April of 1965 a site for an outdoor range was obtained at Lloyd’s Hill, Tamnamore and work began to construct what was to become the headquarters for the club for many years to come.

Within one month of obtaining the site the club had gathered ten pounds two shillings and sixpence and by June of 1965 a concrete based firing point over forty feet long had been laid and covered at a cost of twenty eight pounds and ten shillings.

The following year saw the first outdoor competition to be held at the new range, attracting some sixty eight competitors.

Tamnamore remained the centre of club activities for over three decades until a change of ownership of the lands upon which the range was situated took place.  With new ownership came the request for the Club to vacate the premises.

At present the Club is in the process of  establishing a new outdoor facility in the locality.
