According to google translation, the top is a Tyrolean shooting association while the bottom is a Bavarian shooting association, the Mountain Shields.
No mention of a musical component.

Anyone know if this mean in the polish sense of a paramilitary defence group or just target shooting enthusiasts ?

No clue.
On the one hand, I recall what seemed like every German (speaking) organization having ranks and militaryesque uniforms, so I can see that being applied to the clubs.
I can also see a paramilitary angle, what with the whole Mountain Shields.

Freedom begins where Italy ends! South Tyrol to Austria.
The predecessors of the Tiroler Schützen were the Standschützen; rifle guilds that were involved in military operations from the 16th Century onward. During WW1 they were mobilized after the Italian attack on Austria, and served at the Alpine front as k.k. Standschützen.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standsch% ... _World_War

Today, they are patriotic rifle associations in Austria, but with no specific paramilitary purpose. In Italy, they form the core of the anti-Italian movement, who wants South Tyrol reunited with Austria. Now and again, when tensions between the German minority and the Italian State have been high, they have lost their right to possess target rifles.
