Monday, January 15, 2007, 02:29 PM - CompetitionsAll members of the Rifle and Pistol Club are hereby invited to participate in our annual pistol match against Ohio State University on Saturday, February 3rd, here at the Purdue Armory. Ohio State fields one of the top pistol teams in the U.S., and shooting with them will be a tremendous learning experience. Here are the details:
*Events will include Free Pistol, Standard Pistol, Sport Pistol (tentative) and Air Pistol. You may shoot any or all of the events.
*There is no cost to shoot, though you should bring money for lunch. Ammo, equipment, and snacks will be provided.
*Darren will be able to provide details on each course of fire and the targets to be used. No previous competition experience is necessary, but familiarity with basic pistol shooting is expected. Shooters of all levels and abilities are encouraged to participate. Competition will make you a better shooter.
*You must have all of your paperwork completed (including the blue competition eligibility form) and spring semester membership dues paid before competing. See Tom at practice to confirm these if you're in doubt.
If you're interested in competing, please contact Darren ASAP and let him know.
ALSO, there are still two Rifle Team competition opportunities left in the '06-'07 season: January postals, and the WIRC Finals competition at OSU in February. Competition dues are $15, and your blue competition eligibility form must be turned in. Talk to John at practice if you're interested in these events.
Monday, January 15, 2007, 01:51 PM - PracticeHappy 2007 from the Rifle and Pistol Club! As we gear up for the spring 07 semester, here are a couple practice related announcements.
There will be practice as usual tonight (Mon, Jan 15, 7:00pm) in the armory for any members who want to attend, despite there being no classes today. There will NOT, however, be a safety briefing for new attendees, on account of...
As noted on the callout page, our semesterly callout will be held next Monday, January 22, at or shortly after 7:00pm. This is a great chance for interested persons to stop by, learn about the club and safe shooting, and get involved. Expect the safety briefing part of the callout to last roughly until 8:00, and the rest of the time will be available for shooting/instructional shooting.
Wednesday/Thursday practices will resume as soon as we figure out who can be there to run them. We'll post on here and announce it at a Monday practice when we know.
Monday, December 4, 2006, 07:11 AM - PracticeTomorrow, Monday 12/4, will be our last Monday evening practice session for this semester. As is our tradition, this night will be the opportunity for all interested to bring in their notes and workbooks (preferably no hardcover books) that are no longer needed for their finals and use them as targets.
Keep in mind that, while this is fun, it also tends to be a little messy, so please be willing to stay a little longer afterwards just to help clean up.
Also, to all individuals participating in shooting postal matches, this week is our first and last opportunity to shoot our December Postal Targets, so please be prepared to take care of that.
Monday, November 20, 2006, 04:56 AM - Other EventsOk, you've been asking, so here goes...we're planning a club trip to the range at Jasper-Pulaski for Saturday, December 2nd (that's the Saturday before dead week). The plan is to meet at the armory at 10 am, stop by Wal-Mart for ammo, and pretty much spend the whole afternoon at the range. Personal firearms of all calibers are welcome and encouraged! If you don't have any firearms of your own, don't worry - we'll have plenty there, so you're welcome to use them if you pay for your own ammo.
If you're interesting in going, please send John an email to let him know, so we can plan ahead for transportation. We want to make sure we can get everyone there and back!
