The Claymore Rifle Pistol & Gun Club was founded in the 1970's; The name 'Claymore' (gaelic for big sword) was adopted and the club has as its symbol a sword which is a direct copy of the original sword that was on display at the Kelvingrove Art Galleries. The club logo is a stylised version of that. Since its inception the Club has evolved and diversified we have various categories of membership and we continue to develop and expand our activities for the benefit of our membership into the future to promote target shooting sports with responsible gun ownership and public safety as our primary objective.
