Long Description:
Created as a continuation of the "Sociedade de Tiro de Lisboa", society that began the practice of shooting lead in stand in Portugal in the early twentieth century, the Shooting Range was initially installed in Lumiar, having been transferred to Monsanto, its current location in 1963.

In February 14, 1962, the Municipality of Lisbon signed a deed granting a temporary basis of 60 000 m2 of the Monsanto Forest Park to shooting range.
