Wednesday, April 8, 2009, 05:06 PM - Other EventsThere will be a firearms information session on Thursday, April 16th at 6:00 P.M. in room 102 of the Armory.
The meeting will answer some of life's most important questions, such as "What is an assault weapon?"
and "What exactly does 'semi-automatic' mean?". There will be MANY examples of rifles, pistols, and shotguns, most of which come from our own personal collections. If you enjoy learning about guns and are sick of looking at .22 LR examples, this is your chance to see some REAL firearms.
PLEASE invite your friends, since deep down (pretty much) everyone thinks firearms are intriguing.

Hope to see you there!
Sunday, March 22, 2009, 05:03 PM - Other EventsThe club is planning a trip to Jasper-Pulaski on Saturday, March 28
If you're interested in joining us, please send Corey an e-mail with your name and let him know if you will be driving or riding with us. We're planning on leaving from the Armory at 9:30am and wont be back until around dinner time.
This is a great opportunity to shoot something larger than a .22. Don't have a firearm of your own? No worries. Many of the club's members have more firearms than they can shoot at once and will be happy to share.
Things you will need to bring:
-Weather appropriate clothing
-Money for ammo and to help pay for gas
-Something to eat/drink/money for food
-Anything you think you might need for being in the middle of nowhere for an afternoon with nothing but a portapotty.
You will need to somehow buy your own ammo. We'll probably swing by Walmart on our way out - you can buy some there, if the rest of the club hasn't cleaned them out already. Some of our members buy their ammo in bulk and can sell you some of theirs directly at the range - this is more common for foreign calibers in foreign guns. What calibers you shoot and how much you shoot is completely at your discretion. If you're not sure what to buy, common choices for rifles include .308 Winchester, .223 Remington, and 7.62x39. Good handgun choices are 9x19mm and .45 ACP; you have to be 21 to buy handgun ammo.
Please feel free to e-mail Corey if you have any questions.
Hope to see you there!
Tuesday, February 10, 2009, 01:54 PM - PracticeWednesday and Thursday practices have started. They are held from 10:30 to 12:30 on those days.
There will be no practice Wednesday 03/04/2009 due to schedule conflict in the Armory.
There will be no practices at all during spring break.
There will be other times when a schedule conflict forces a cancellation. We will try to post a notice of these cases when we become aware of them.
Sunday, January 11, 2009, 09:38 PM - PracticeA couple notes for the beginning of the semester:
There WILL be practice on Monday, January 12, but only for existing members. There will be no safety briefing for new members.
No practice Monday, January 19 due to classes being cancelled.
Monday, January 26 will be callout night. We're still working on details, but shooting will be limited to new members, and existing members should expect to help with the callout in lieu of shooting. We'll post more as we figure it out.
Monday practices should be more or less back to normal after that.
No word yet on when Wed/Thurs practices will start up.
Update: Wednesday and Thursday practices won't start at least until after the callout. More on this later.
Tuesday, December 9, 2008, 10:17 PM - Tech SupportThe club now uses Purdue's Mailman server (https://lists.purdue.edu/) for managing our mailing list. It should be easier and more versatile for everyone than our old system. All members who were on the existing mailing list have been automatically transferred.
