Halifax Airgun Club welcomed dozens of people to its shooting ranges when it opened its doors at the Phoebe Lane Industrial Estate, Siddal.

Businessman John Taylor said a wide range of people attended and he was confident for the future as more people get to know about the venue. He said people would have to travel a long way for similar non-member indoor facilities and his his club would help educate people around air rifles and deter them being used where they shouldn’t.
