Are you interested in firearms and enjoy helping out and educating new shooters in proper firearm use and safety? Would you like the opportunity to help further the shooting sports by becoming an NRA certified instructor or Maryland hunter's education instructor? Then becoming a volunteer member of the Cresap Rifle Club may just be what you are looking for!

Or, maybe you are just looking for a place to shoot and not interested in volnteering your time and energy for club activities and educational programs? If this is the case you may be better served by other area clubs. Please visit our links page for information on those organizations.

As a member of the club you will minimally be expected to:
  • Maintain continuous membership in the NRA
  • Volunteer as a range officer during public range hours at least eight (8) days a year
  • Volunteer for at least one (1) range work day per year.
  • Sign up for one of various committees and perform volunteer work for the committee.
  • Obtain an NRA range safety officer certification within your probationary term
Membership of the club is capped at 60 people. There is no cost for membership. You must be sponsored by a current member in order to apply for membership. So, how do you get a sponsor you may ask? Become a regular during public hours. Demonstrate your safe firearm handling skills. Assist the volunteer range officers with brass cleanup and target changes. Socialize with members and simply make friends. Proving yourself does not happen in 1 or 2 visits. Put in the time and demonstrate your commitment to the club and the sport.

Your sponsor will provide you with a membership application. The application will be submitted to the membership committee and you will be interviewed by them. You will then be placed on probationary member status for a period of one year. During this first year you will not have voting rights but will be able to participate in all club activities. After one year of successful probationary status you will be voted in by the membership as a full member.

The most common questions is "When can I use the range to shoot?" As a member you will be able to use the range facilities during non-public hours and when not in use by law enforcement agencies. This is typically all day Thursday and Friday and after public hours on the weekends.

For more information please email us at info@cresaprifleclub.com or simply visit the range and speak to one of our volunteer members.
