Wish me luck

OK, today I am submitting my application for membership in a highly-desired private shooting club in my area. The wait list is at least a year, and the application fee ain't cheap, but this will be my self-birthday gift for next year.

The club has skeet and trap ranges, rifle ranges, pistol ranges, a silhouette range, and hosts competitive events regularly.

I've wanted to join this club for 30 years, and am finally in a position to do so. I've got the sponsors and the credentials, so please wish me luck.

    Sounds like you will get the membership.
    Happy for you!
    I just feel blessed I do not have to go through all of that to have nice places to shoot.

    Tell me about it. Here in the east, fine outdoor ranges are few, far between, and expensive...

    And Thanks!

    Good luck bro.

    I guess it was them that called asking if I knew you and could vouch for you. It freaked me out at first, I thought they were the police and they were looking for me. Anyhow, I told them all about how you were the shining star of the family, having all your teeth and all. That and for marring outside of the family. I referred them to Buffy for any further questions....

    Good luck! And once you're a member of an elite shooting club, please don't forget us little peeples.

    LM, what you need to do more than anything is not let the club bigwigs know that you hang around people like us on the G&A forum. Your application will be spiked in a heartbeat.

    Best of luck to you, though I'm sure you'll do fine.
  • LMLarsenLMLarsen Senior Member Posts: 8,337 Senior Member
    Good luck! I'm pretty sure I know which one you're talking about and their initiation fee and dues are crazy (think Les Baer for for the first year and a RIA every year after that!)!

    From a selfish perspective though I did notice they have monthly IDPA shoots so I may have to start attending those rather than driving out to Annapolis. It also looks like they have a range that goes to 300yds so maybe my good buddy Larry will be generous enough to invite me along sometime when I'm getting the itch to stretch our my rifles a bit (my range only goes to 100yds)

    :applause: :wink:

    Chris, you know that NRA and Silver Eagle both hosts IDPA matches, right?

    Hey, I wouldn't own a Savage if it was the last gun on earth! What do you take me for?

    True but, would you want to be a part of a group that would have you as a member?

    It would definitely say something about their lack of standards and morals.

    Personally I think you're a shoo-in! I've shot there as a guest several times, and that
    place is seriously cool. Go for it!
