Hey XDTalkers, Some background, I go to OU (Boomer Sooner!) and I find myself pretty disappointed that we dont have a shooting club. So, I am starting one! We have alot done so far (me and some other students are working on it) but we need members! I dont know if any OU students actually come here but if you do and are interested send me a PM and I will fill you in. Secondly, to the rest of the 'seasoned' members . My biggest concern is getting someone who doesnt necessarily know much about guns or is unsafe with firearms. Part of the requirements for membership is either: you must have completed a certified Hunter Safety Course, you must have a CHL, or you must be an active duty or reserve military member to be allowed to shoot. What do you guys think? Any suggestions about what might be a better idea? Our meetings are going to cover safety, maintenance, LEO speakers, planning shoots, gun laws, etc. Anything that you guys think would be good ideas? These are broad ideas but they are things that I think would be beneficial. If anyone with experience in these areas and live around Norman I would LOVE to have some of you guys come in when we get the ball rolling. Also, I would be interested in getting some sponsors to provide stickers, hats, etc. How would I go about doing that? I figure some of you are competition shooters and surely know someone to help out. Lastly, what kind of channels do you guys go through for donations and that kind of thing? Again, I imagine some of the pro/semi-pro guys have experience with this. We might try setting up some 'fundraiser' shoots where you donate $5 to shoot and we run a range for the day. Even if you cant help with the above, any words of encouragement would be appreciated! I think it will be a daunting task but I think it is one worth doing and would benefit alot of students here who dont have a place to go to talk about firearms.
