Why a Private Club?

Unlike a commercial shooting range, which provide range services to the public for a fee, a private club exists to serve its members rather than the public at large. FTRPA is a non-profit corporation, organized along the same lines as many other civic organizations. Members vote for the corporation’s directors, who manage and direct the club. All of our directors are volunteers who are not paid a salary. Our club has no full-time employees, and members are encouraged to pitch in to help keep the club running smoothly.

Because of our reliance on our own members help run our club, a private club will tend to be a bit cheaper than a commercial range for the services offered. While we are careful to ensure that our prospective members are safe and responsible shooters, we are not exclusive, and welcome new members from all walks of life.

So How Do I Become a Member?

In order to become a member of Falls Township Rifle and Pistol Association, you must be sponsored by a current member in good standing, and who has been a member for at least two years. They need to submit a sponsorship form (which can be found in the accordion folder in the sign-in desk), fulfill all the requirements, and place it in the Board Room door or mail it to us. This will place the prospective member’s name on our list.

Please review our club’s rules, and make sure you are comfortable with them. There is a $300 initiation fee, and dues are $185/yr. Incoming members pay the initiation fee and pro-rated dues. For members who volunteer to help out at the club, we do provide credits towards your dues to help keep your costs lower, since you are helping the club keep our costs lower.

How Do I Get a Sponsor?

Don’t know a member?  Participating in open matches is the best way to meet a potential sponsor.  Introduce yourself to the Match Director.
