Getting the Club's Equipment

By the time you have organized your club and sold its bonds there will be money a-plenty in the treasury to do things with. The first thing to do is to rent or otherwise get a suitable range and to buy a dozen or more .22-caliber single-shot rifles of some good standard make; also get a dozen small telescopes of the single-draw kind for shooters to spot their hits with, and these should be supported on camera tripods or other stands. The guns are loaned to members who haven't their own but the telescopes are let out at 5 cents a day each just to help along the income of the club.

The butts should be built as described in the last chapter, though if there are no houses or roads nearby they can be made much cheaper. The firing-line is then marked off and the club is ready for business. In summer a shelter is not needed, but by all means have the firing-line closed in and heated for the winter months, or I fear me your club will go up the flue.

When buying cartridges for the club buy them in large enough quantities so that you can get them as cheaply as possible and any of the big firms that make cartridges will quote you a very low price if you will tell them that they are for your club.

To help keep track of the cartridges as well as for the convenience they afford to members at the firing-line get twelve blocks of wood 1 inch thick, 3 inches wide and 5 inches long, bore 10 holes in each block and have each hole just large enough so that a .22-caliber cartridge will fit into it as shown in Fig. 59.

Elbow mats and mats for firing from the kneeling and prone position should also be provided if the club's funds will permit.

A general utility boy to take care of the ammunition, change the targets and do the hundred and one other little things that need doing around a range can be hired, but if money is an object let each member take his turn and then you will be sure of getting good service.
