above are members of the Helena Gun Club, July 27 1947.
This photo by Les Jorud was taken at the Club's present
location in the Helena Valley, at 5505 N. Montana Avenue.
1927 to 1946, the Club operated in the west side Kenwood
Addition, just outside the city limits. That early facility
was located near the intersection of Highway 12 and Linden,
but the exact location is unknown to your editor as of this
interesting tidbit about the early club in Kenwood is that
members would periodically "mine" the range for
lead shotgun pellets, and over the years some 20 tons of
lead was recovered.
Helena Trap Club is still
