Monday, Aug. 31

Enter the Armory through the South doors (near the parking garage). Please arrive as close to 7:00 PM as possible so we can begin the safety briefing on time.
Any current Purdue student or faculty who would like to attend is welcome (and encouraged) to do so, regardless of experience. Make sure to invite your friends! Bring $5.00 - $10 in cash for ammunition.
Existing members: if you're interested in helping with the callout, please show up at 6:30 to help set up equipment. Thanks in advance to everyone who can help.
If you'd like any more information, feel free to e-mail Andrew Lowe.
See you at the callout!

Wednesday, April 15, 2009, 11:42 AM - Other EventsThe club is planning a trip to Jasper-Pulaski on Saturday, April 18 and May 2.
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'll somehow have to buy your own ammo. The Wal-Marts in town sell out hours after they're restocked, so unless you call them and find out when they get their shipments in, getting it there will be difficult. Dick's in the mall stocks ammo as well, and they usually have some stuff. There's also Applied Ballistics and Guns and Gear. I would recommend trying to find it online, but be prepared to search for a couple hours. Also keep in mind that you can possess pistol ammo at 18, but you can't buy it from a store until you're 21. If you're looking to get pistol ammo and you're not 21, find a club member that is and see if they can help you out. People are bringing guns in various calibers, so here's a list of ammo to look for:
.44 Mag (maybe)
Please feel free to e-mail Corey if you have any questions.
Hope to see you there!
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!
