The McMurry Shooting Sports Club has been established this fall and is off to a great start with more than 25 students signing up for the inaugural year. The club recently received a $10,000 grant from the American Shooting Sports Foundation to purchase equipment.

The McMurry Shooting Sports Club will be shooting Trap, Skeet, and 5 stand competitions.  The club will be broken down into two divisions. The Intramural Division will be students who want to learn the basics of shooting and shooting for fun. The second division will be shooting in competitive tournaments. 

The McMurry Shooting Sports Club will join the Association of College Union International (ACUI) and will compete for the national championship in San Antonio in March 2016. Last year over 70 colleges and universities and 600 shooters competed for the championship.
