Becoming an MSA member, step-by-step.
Step #1: Joining MSA
"Joining" MSA simply refers to getting all your information in our membership database. The easiest and most accurate way to do that is to join on-line. Click the link at the bottom of this page to begin the process (you may want to finish reading this page before doing that).
If you have ever been a member in the past your information is already in our system. You can Log In to update your information and renew your membership.
Prefer to do everything in person? Sign up for an R&P orientation session or stop by the Shotgun Range. We'll be happy to help you get signed up when you get to the range.
More questions about joining? Call or email the club secretary, the R&P Admin, or the Shotgun Admin (phone numbers and email addresses can be found here).
Step #2: Paying Your Dues
Effective March 1, 2012, MSA membership dues are $200.00 per year. All memberships are considered family memberships for the purposes of range use (within the limits of range regulations). This family membership includes both spouses and all children (17 and under) living in the household.
We recommend that you pay your dues on-line when you fill out your membership application (step #1). Paying on-line ensures your dues are credited to the correct membership.
Prefer not to pay on-line? No problem - you can still join on-line, ensuring your info is in our system correctly. When you click on the "Confirm and Proceed With Payment" button at the end of the application you will be given a choice of paying on-line or printing an invoice so you can mail it in or pay in person.
Step #3: Orientation
RIFLE & PISTOL RANGE
Because the R&P Range offers such a wide variety of range areas and types of shooting, it is critical that all of our members are following the same safety and range usage procedures.
All members must attend a one-time Range Orientation class prior to using the Rifle & Pistol Range (no exceptions). The classes are usually offered every weekend and typically take about two hours.
Joining on-line and preregistering for orientation allows us to be better prepared and makes the class go smoother. After you join on-line check the event calendar for classes.
The nature of the shotgun sports and Shotgun Range makes range use less complex so the orientation process is simpler. On your first visit to the Shotgun Range check in at the clubhouse and let them know you are a new member.
