The Tech Pistol and Rifle club is a recreational target-shooting club for the MIT community.
Note: this is not the undergrad intercollegiate pistol team, they're over here: MIT Sport Pistol Club.
Also note: this is also not the MIT Varsity Rifle Team, they're over here: MIT Varsity Rifle.
We meet to practice at the MIT Pistol Range on Tuesday evenings (usually at 6:30), followed by GBPL matches during the season. The club is also active at the range on most Sunday afternoons. If you want to come shoot with us, you need to either be a guest of a specific member or a member of the club yourself. (See below for more info about membership.)

Pistol Marksmanship Classes: the schedule will be posted shortly.
2016-2017 Membership renewals:2015-2016 memberships expired on 31 August, 2016. The new membership form is available right here. If you plan to shoot in the Greater Boston Pistol League as a member of the MITPRC team, you can include the GBPL fee ($10) with your membership fee and just write one check.
DAPER Range Access:After much discussion with DAPER, the access fee has been agreed to $75 per year for a special DAPER access card which can be used for range access only.
Members who otherwise have full DAPER athletic facilities privileges (mandatory and already paid for for current MIT students, subject to a fee much higher than $75 for others), or who only shoot outdoor rifle events with the club, don't need this card.
Regardless of having to pay a fee or not, if you're arranging access through the club you will need to fill out a Liability Waiver. (Download and print or ask the secretary for a copy). Send the waiver and your fee to the club secretary at the club's PO box. If you've had a card from previous years, there's no need to get a new card; once you've submittted the paperwork your card will be renewed for another year's worth of access.
