COAST RIFLE AND PISTOL CLUB

Welcome to the Coast Rifle & Pistol Club on the Web
Serving the Mississippi Gulf Coast since 1968!

NEW MEMBERS - Welcome Anytime

 

 

Dues

 

New members are always welcome at Coast Rifle & Pistol Club.  There is only one level of full membership plus an Associate Member status available for spouses of Members.

Dues are $200.00 per year plus a one-time initiation fee of $200.00 for new members (Note: the new member initiation fee does not apply to current or former members of Coast Rifle & Pistol Club.).  For whatever month a new member joins the Club, that membership remains valid until the last day of that month a year later.  The Club now prefers payment by check, credit card or money order however cash is accepted as well.

 

 

Mandatory Safety Briefing

 

Applicants for membership must attend a one-time Safety Briefing conducted by the elected Range Safety Officer, another club officer or delegated member at the range clubhouse.  The briefings are carried out on the first Saturday and third Sunday of every month starting in May 2016.  The safety briefing will start promptly at 4:00 PM each day. It is recommended to arrive twenty to thirty minutes early to fill in application forms, make payments, etc. The range vehicle gate is normally open from 3:30 to 4:00 to allow access to applicants. Upon entry, please proceed to the clubhouse and park in front of the clubhouse or in the lot past the clubhouse. It is possible to arrange alternate times for a Safety Briefing in cases where employment or other circumstances make it difficult to comply with the normal schedule.  Please contact the Range Safety Officer, President or Treasurer for a convenient time to arrange for a meeting.

* BOLD RED TEXT HAS BEEN REVISED

 

Immediately prior to the regularly scheduled Safety Briefing an applicant will complete and/or hand in the application form with a one-time $200 initiation fee and $200.00 annual membership fee payable at the time of joining not in advance by online payment.  A photo ID badge will be printed and turned over to the new member upon completion of the Safety Briefing.  At this point the new member is free to use the range facilities within the guidelines of the Safety Rules and Club By-Laws.  The badge will be used to gain access to the gate and clubhouse. It will be required to use your badge for entry and exit through the front gate. (Please see Military area below for special exemptions.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Associate Membership

 

For $25 the spouse of a member can become an Associate Member.  Associate Members have all the rights, privileges and responsibilities of a Member (individual photo ID badge, use of the range and authorization for two guests without the Member presence, etc.) with one exception.  Associate Members are not permitted to vote in the annual elections.  To become an Associate Member the spouse must attend the mandatory Safety Briefing.  Payment and attendance can be accomplished at any time during which the other spouse’s full membership is valid.

 

 

Membership Gift Certificates

 

 Membership Gift Certificates are available by contacting the Club at mail@crpcms.com .  Occasionally the certificates will be offered for sale from the Club’s table at nearby gun shows.  Cost is the same as regular annual dues, $200 and a one time initiation fee for new members. (The fee does not apply to current or past members whether active or not, or to active military).  At gun shows, only check or money order can be accepted.  The membership commences when the bearer presents the certificate at a Safety Briefing and follows the other routine steps for new members.

 

 

Military

 

Active duty military personnel with orders to transfer less than one year in the future may, upon presentation of written orders, join for $20 per month from the application date to the transfer date. The one time initiation fee will be waived for the following categories:

Disabled Veterans,  Active Military and Retired Military.
