Lever Action Shooting in Australia

Under the guidance of the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia, Lever Action Shooting has developed into a National Sport, with Lever Action Clubs in most states.

It first originated in Queensland in the late 60's followed by New South Wales. Western Australia commenced a year or two later then came South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.

The first Lever Action Club in Western Australia was established in Albany, followed by Perth Lever Action Club. Our first competition was held on September 30th 1973 with nine members competing. Following Perth came Kalgoorlie, Newman, Cranbrook and Dumbleyung. Regrettably the latter three have since disbanded.

The Perth Lever Action Rifle Club Inc. can now boast of being one of the largest Lever Clubs in Australia, with over 130 members, consisting of Adults and Juniors.

The first state lever action titles were hosted by Brisbane Lever Action Club. Four Perth members attended with some success! The National Titles are contested rotationally each year and Perth were hosts in 1979, 1983,1987,1999 and 2012.

 

When Do We Shoot

The Perth Lever Action Rifle Club Inc. shoot fortnightly throughout the year with the revolver section shooting monthly. In recent years we have implemented more competitions with hunter class rifle and field pistol becoming popular, we also have shoots for our senior members which take place monthly on a Wednesday morning.

Facilities of the range are of high standard and include a well equipped club house with canteen, office, scoring room and targets store. Adequate parking is provided together with BBQ facilities and toilet/shower facilities.

Our range has 30 covered firing points, 15 at 50mtrs and 15 at 100mtrs. We also have a running target range in a bush setting plus a safety area for any malfunctions which may occur. All shoots are controlled by the club captain and their team of range officers. Safe shooting is strongly promoted by the club and its members at all times.

There are three types of Membership, Adult, Family and Junior. All club members must be members of the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia, which can be joined at the club. Family membership is encouraged when ever possible.
