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.
For more information, see the Mailing List page.
Monday, December 8, 2008, 10:00 PM - The Business EndThe Purdue Rifle and Pistol Club is now (once again) officially affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP Website). Dues-paid members who want to take advantage of CMP programs like sales can request a club membership card to prove their eligibility.
Monday, December 8, 2008, 09:57 PM - PracticeThere will be no practice next week, Dec. 15 - Dec. 19, on account of it being final exams week. Apparently studying is more important than shooting.
Who would have thought?

Thursday, November 6, 2008, 01:48 PM - Other EventsWe will be heading to Jasper-Pulaski on Sunday Nov. 23 and Saturday Dec. 6.
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. E-mail Corey if you have questions.
If you want to go send Corey an e-mail with your name and let him know if you will be driving. In order to get the paperwork in we will need to know who is attending and who is driving by noon on Friday for the Nov. trip. For the Dec. trip, we will need to know by Wed. Nov. 19.
Be at the armory ready to go at 9:30am and don't expect to be back until around dinner. 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.
