As I’m sure you are all aware, membership in the Capitol City Rifle and Pistol club
requires a current, unexpired membership in the NRA. As part of the conditions set by the NRA
for backing our club insurance (which greatly keeps the cost down), the NRA requires that 100%
of the club members be NRA members.
As we have had some issues with CCRP members no longer wanting to maintain an NRA
membership due to conflicting beliefs, members that forget and let their NRA membership
lapse, and members whose NRA membership ends just before, on, or just after they renew
their club membership, we have had to tighten up on that policy.
If your membership expires anywhere around your club dues anniversary, I highly
suggest that you consider renewing early. For example, if your dues are due September 1 and
your NRA expires September 30, you could be paid up and still find yourself locked out on
October 1. Thirty days after that, your membership would be terminated.
Another thing to think of concerning the renewal of your NRA membership is the delays
created by the COVID overreactions. If you mail your NRA renewal check to the NRA, you are
looking at 4-6 weeks before you hear anything and that’s provided they have even processed it
by then. Please, go online to do your renewal and ask for a receipt.
It is incumbent upon you to provide the necessary information and have it done in time.
Frankly, the more time I have to spend tracking NRA memberships, the less likely I am to be
lenient on late memberships.
If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact Chris Moffet, club president,
through the club website contact page.
