As I recall, the original problem with UT was that they did not want us to
use crossbows, based on the mistaken belief that all crossbows are powered
something like an F-4 and would tear up their targets.  I can understand the
other rule, though.  As with any athletic or sports equipment on campus,
students pay a fee as part of their tuition to use the facilities.  Faculty
and staff must also pay a membership fee to use the same facilities.  I can
go use the archery range, but my husband can't   IIRC, there are no
membership fees for F/S to use the workout facilities at A&M (which brings
up an interesting point: the students -- and/or you the taxpayer -- are
paying for it!), so perhaps there's not a big problem if the organization is
registered on campus.  A&M is in a much smaller town without the same sorts
of problems we face about non-authorized usage here in Austin.
