There are 4 steps you need to complete in order to join the club.

  • Fill out a membership application.
  • Maintain membership in a national gun rights organization
  • Be voted in at a membership meeting and pay dues
  • Complete a safety briefing at the range

new member application

You can download a copy of an application as a fillable PDF form.  After completing the form, print a copy and bring it to a meeting.  If you are unable to attend a meeting, you can stop by the range on a weekend day, and ask a club officer to ‘hold up’ your application at the next meeting.  If you have difficulty downloading or printing the application, paper copies that can be filled out by hand are always available at club meetings or the office at the range.

National gun rights organizAtion

The founders of MCRC believed that every gun owner had a responsibility to protect the Second Amendment and our right to keep and bear arms.  they made membership in a gun rights organization (GRO) mandatory for club members.  You must be a member of the National Rifle Association (NRA), Gun Owners of America (GOA), the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), or Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership (JPFO).  Bring your membership card to the meeting, or you can join the NRA using the link below.  If you prefer a different GRO, check for applications at the meeting.

Mcrc monthly meeting

The MCRC  monthly meeting is held every second Monday at Murrays Neighborhood Grill and Bar.  See the Calendar for the date of the next meeting, as well as a map.  At the end of each meeting, immediately prior to adjournment, there is a call for new members.  Prospective members are asked to stand, introduce themselves, and tell the assembled members why the wish to join. The membership in attendance then approves the new members on a voice vote. If you are unable to attend a meeting, you can stop by the range on a weekend day, and ask a club officer to ‘hold up’ your application at the next meeting.  Once the meeting is adjourned, the new members submit the applications & payments to club officers.

SAFETY BRIEFING

At the meeting, before adjournment, the date and time of the next mandatory new member safety briefing is announced.  It is typically 2 to 3 weeks after the meeting.  Eye and hearing protection is required.  Everyone at the briefing should bring a printed copy of the range rules.
