NRA classes provide an opportunity for shooters to learn the key elements of shooting and safe gun handling. Classes include Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun, and Personal Protection. NRA-certified instructors teach these classes with concern for your success and safety. State-certified instructors offer Hunter Education classes throughout the year in both traditional and internet-based home-study formats.

They participate in a supervised shooting program that emphasizes safety and skill development in clay target shooting. The program focuses on teaching sound shooting fundamentals and instilling a safe and responsible attitude towards firearms.
Additional information about these training programs can be found at the range offices and this web site page.
Fun Club Events throughout the Year
The club sponsors a variety of events. The member’s newsletter contains announcements for events and event schedules. This information is also available through the club’s web site.
In May, the club holds its annual barbecue that is open to the public. The BBQ serves as our largest fundraiser. It features a barbecued steak dinner (actually lunch) with all the trimmings. Shooting competitions occur throughout the day for prizes. Entertainment for the kids is available. Additionally, we have a variety of items that are distributed through raffles or auctions. Proceeds benefit the club.
Merchandise shoots are held several times a year. The club holds “meat shoots” where the winner of the competition will receive a slab of bacon, ham, turkey or other meats, depending on the season. These competitions are often held prior to major holidays and anyone can enter these fun, quick shooting events. The club’s newsletter or website will have more information on upcoming events.
Your Membership is Encouraged
The advantages of membership are more than just financial. In addition to being able to shoot at a discount, members get a quarterly newsletter with all the latest news about the club. Not only does the club provide a great place to shoot but also provides an opportunity to socialize while building a stronger club and an even better place to shoot in the Bay Area.
Annual membership is available at $150 with a one-time initiation fee of $50. Clearly, it doesn’t take much shooting to save the cost of your membership fees and more. Life memberships are also available at $2,250. Club members and their immediate family (spouses, children under the age of 18, students under 21) can shoot at member rates when accompanied by the member, providing you even more savings. Guests of a member (outside the immediate family) can shoot as a guest one time under the member rate, when accompanied by the member. After that, guests must either join the club or shoot at non-member rates.
Everyone starts out as an associate member. Associate members have the same shooting privileges and access to the shooting facilities but are not allowed to vote or hold elected office within the club. After an associate member has been with the club for two years and satisfied the requirements as outlined by the club’s bylaws, the member can petition the board for regular membership. This level of membership allows you voting privileges and qualifies you to hold an elected office within the club.
To obtain an Associate Membership Application, contact one of the range offices or download it from the club’s web site HERE. The board of directors meets the third Monday of each month at 7 PM in the clubhouse. The meetings are open to club patrons, whether you are a member or not, and visitors are always welcome to attend.
