MRPC is a Rifle & Pistol club that exists for the purpose as stated in Article II of MRPC’s Constitution:
“The object of this organization shall be the encouragement of organized Rifle and Pistol shooting in the community with a view towards better knowledge on the part of individuals, the safe handling and proper care of firearms, as well as improved marksmanship. It shall be our further object and purpose to promote development of those characteristics of honesty, good fellowship, self-discipline, team play and self- reliance, which are the essentials of good sportsmanship.”
This club purpose is at the core of the Junior programs offered at MRPC. The goal of these programs is to introduce and instill this purpose into the next generation of competitive shooters who have the interest in competitive shooting.
MRPC hosts a number of NRA and CMP sanctioned rifle matches in addition to club and league sponsored matches. Many Juniors attend regional and national matches right along with adult competitors having gained much of their marksmanship skills through the MRPC Junior programs. MRPC also encourages those Juniors to become engaged at the club as a Junior club member.
