    Unfortunately, no. MRGC is a non-profit club. To keep costs down and for insurance purposes, we don't maintain any rental firearms. Perhaps one of your shooting buds has a rifle you can borrow.

    Even if you can't get your hands on a rifle, feel free to come down and observe the shoot.

    I think you just gave me an excuse to buy another gun. I have been wanting an M-1 Carbine for a while.
