The following are the steps for a RENEWAL of current individual member application [including NRA & SSSC life members]:

3. What are the requirements for an SSSC individual membership for a PREVIOUS MEMBER that allowed their membership to expire ?
For previous members who are not currently active and wish to rejoin [including NRA & SSSC life members] the application process is as follows:

  • Previous members who have allowed their membership to lapse and wish to rejoin–but have never attended a Safety Orientation class–must follow the NEW MEMBER application procedure, including attending a Safety Orientation class.
  • Previous members who have allowed their membership to lapse and wish to rejoin–and are confirmed to have previously attended a Safety Orientation class–must follow the NEW MEMBER application procedure, but are not required to attend another Safety Orientation class.

4. If I am a life member of the NRA or a life member of the SSSC, previously filled out the SSSC membership paperwork, and my personal information has not changed, why do I have to complete more paperwork each year to continue my membership ?

All new applicants, renewing applicants, previous members who are reapplying after an interruption in membership, NRA life members, and SSSC life members are required to follow the procedures for on-going SSSC membership. The annual membership procedures can be found on the club’s Web site (www.SangreShooting.com/membership/).

These parameters are in place to protect our privileged status with and allegiance to the NRA, to frequently remind participants of the more important safety rules, and to keep our membership informed of changes and updates. Member safety, our insurance policy and legal responsibilities that relate to keeping our range, and staying up on policy changes, are some of the justifications for the implemented procedures. But, most importantly and simply, these are the club’s policies and procedures for membership. To a few of our associates the procedures might seem cumbersome. To the vast majority they are understood, accepted and followed.

The SSSC policies & procedures and range rules are frequently reviewed, updated as necessary and  implemented by the elected board of directors, as well as communicated to the membership at annual meetings. They are also published on the club’s Web site (www.SangreShooting.com), and the range rules are posted at the range.

5. Is the annual fee amount prorated if I join during the year ?
No.

6. What types of memberships are available ?
Only individual memberships are offered at this time.
An individual membership affords the member all Club benefits, including: unsupervised access to the SSSC range facility and use of all range resources; participation in SSSC sponsored events; access to the Civilian marksmanship Program (CMP); and hosting of guests at the range, including up to two actively shooting guests.

7. Is there a special fee for family or other special memberships ?
Only individual memberships are offered at this time.

8. As a new member applicant, how do I arrange for a range safety orientation class ?
Following the January annual membership meeting, multiple safety orientations will be scheduled in February and March to accommodate new member applications…refer to the Club’s Web site (www.SangreShooting.com/safety-orientation/)
Throughout the remainder of the year, the Range Safety Officer will schedule additional safety orientations as needed to accommodate new applicants. A schedule of orientation classes will be published on the Club’s web site…watch for announcements on the Club’s Home page (www.SangreShooting.com)

9. After I’ve satisfied all of the new membership requirements, how soon will I be able to access the range ?
Typically within 10-days of completion of all membership requirements, an individual range electronic gate code will be communicated to you via e-mail.
