ABOUT PALMERSTON PISTOL CLUB
Palmerston City is located about 20 Kms from Darwin City. Palmerston Pistol Club is located in the Darwin Area and the biggest and most active ISSF/PA pistol club in the Northern Territory, Australia. It is still only a small club and therefore and to a large extent relies heavily on support and grants from other organisations.
The Palmerston Pistol Club is situated off Catalina Road in Palmerston NT, and meets every Sunday Morning at 8am until approximately 12pm, and every Tuesday evening from 5pm - 8pm. The Palmerston Pistol Club’s events are all Pistol Australia and Pistol NT (the NT Peak body) sanctioned competition matches. Disciplines include ISSF, Black Powder, Service/WA1500, as well as 50m Silhouette.
The club actively promotes competition at inter club and interstate level. In the Darwin area, the Palmerston Pistol Club is “the” ISSF (International Shooting Sport Federation) club and is recognised as such in all the Darwin area. Also, Service pistol shooting is very competitive in the Darwin area and of course Palmerston Pistol Club is well recognised.
Every year members of the Palmerston Pistol Club have represented the Darwin area and the Northern Territory at the National Championships held in various parts of Australia such as Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Cessnock in NSW.
