Awhile ago I made a thread about trying to start a rifle team at my school. Now I kinda revised my idea to something more practical (albeit still impossible ). My family is joining a new gun club sometime in February. They have indoor and outdoor rifle ranges (the inside is 22lr only), and hold a basic firearm safety course. I might ask them if they would be interested in helping me start a rifle club at my school. I figure I could someone (don't know who yet) to pay for some starter .22 rifles and ammo (and have them stored at the club, off campus). Then I would have all the kids go to one of the safety courses, and after that, start shooting against each other. I have friends in other schools that might be interested in starting the same thing. If THAT works, we could have a competitive league going. I don't think the school would mind if they had a rifle club/team as long as the "bad stuff" (ammo, guns, etc) were all kept off campus. Questions... Is this at ALL practical? Keep in mind I live in MA. If so, how would I approach the gun club directors and school administration? How would I get the school to know I'm serious and not just some nut? I guess we could try to do some fundraising, but is there any chance the school would want to drop ~$1000 (maybe more) on some guns and ammo (I know they have the money; they just spent $60 million on a renovation project that is both unfinished and 3 years overdue)? Any other advice? If I could get this going, it would be INCREDIBLE. Thanks!
