New Membership Application

Membership applications are subject to review by the Officers and Board of Directors. New memberships are probationary for 1 year – membership may be terminated during this period without cause by the Officers and Board of Directors. During this probationary period, you must participate in at least 10 hours of club activities. This can include monthly meetings, committee meetings, community service, training events, volunteering for training (i.e. ladies range day), etc.

Our activities will be guided and informed by our beliefs and commitments to:

  • People: We support the rights of all people to bear arms while focusing on this right as it relates to Black people, regardless of sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, religion, or political affiliation.
  • Community: We value social connections that exist within the 2nd Amendment and Black communities and recognize the importance these connections have in influencing systems, resolving societal issues, and creating a more perfect union.
  • Firearm ownership: We affirm and vigorously protect the right of Black Americans to bear arms for self and community defense, sportsmanship, and all other lawful and morally justifiable activities.
