170th Anniversary of NBSV

  • New Braunfels Schuetzen Verein celebrated 170 years of continuous operation this 4th of July. We are the oldest continuously operating shooting club in the USA. We closed our 2019 season this Sunday by shooting an Ehrenscheibe, a hand painted wooden target depicting the Landeswappen of Braunfels in honor of Prince Karl of Solms-Braunfels, founder of New Braunfels. The shooters each pay a small fee to take a single offhand shot. The shot nearest the aiming spot wins the target and the honor of supplying next year’s target. Most shooters doubled the fee, raising a nice profit for the club. Congratulations to winner, Eric Williams, shooter #25.
