    I go to UC Berkeley (damn you, Texas!) and our gun club disbanded the year before I got here when the president graduated and no one took the leadership of the club. However, I've had a lot of success taking many a fellow student to the range and teaching them proper safety. A common reply is, "Wow, I always thought it was easy to accidently shoot people." Another ignorant mind educated!

    Do any of you who go to college have active gun clubs on the scene?

    No, but I'd join up if there was one.

    I had a teacher in high school who had been on his high school's rifle team back in the '70's. Goes to show how times change, I guess.

    I haven't heard of any, but I'd join if I could find one.

    When I went to Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan they had an indoor .22 range and club. They also did pistol marksmanship courses and CCW classes. No HP rifle range though.

    Don't think that UAF (Alaska, fairbanks) really has one, but we do have the #1 rifle team in the world... Also, I'm enrolled in "Basic Pistol Marskmanship, RECR101" next semester. And our campus has at least 2 indoor ranges.

    I am actually the treasurer of the Radford University Rod & Gun Club.
    Im pretty lucky to have a club here. I wanted to start a practical team but the president is a woman and thinks we should concentrate more on shotgunning sports, because thats what she is used to. Last year we spent $1200+ on a Ruger 12ga. o/u, and I was more or less shut down when I said that our next grant should go to a HP Practical in .40 Anyway thats my rant on that, but yes we do have a campus gun club.

    I have thought about starting one on my campus, but being in downtown Houston and as liberal as it is I don't think we would get very far.

    My campus has an indoor range, but the lawyers got it shut down for liability reasons. ^9^9^9

    There is a club at LSU but I'm not in it.

    I am taking a military science class, rifle and pistol marksmanship. Our grades are based on how well we shoot. :)
