Frequently Asked Questions about CRGC

CRGC, CR&G and CRnG all refer to the "Chester Rod and Gun Club"

 

How do I submit my application to become a member of CRGC?

You may submit your membership application by downloading the application form, in PDF format, from our membership information page, and mail it along with your payment, to the address indicated. You may also email a completed PDF document to the Membership Secretary and pay your Application Fee using PayPal.

 

What is the requirement to perform 'work hours' and how do I earn my credit?

Members may earn work hours for voluntary service to the Club that will provide them with a credit towards their next year membership dues. Work hours can be earned in many ways, such as helping out at an event or function or by doing some work around the club. Work can be as simple as cleaning the clubhouse, setting up tables, cooking, painting, or picking up supplies.

Currently the minimum is six (6) work hours which will provide a $30 credit towards renewal membership dues. For each additional six (6) earned work hours the member’s name will be entered in a drawing for a firearm at the December monthly members' meeting.

A Club Officer or an Activity Chairman must verify and approve all work hours.

Questions about our ranges

When can I shoot on our outdoor ranges?

Firearms can only be discharged between the hours of 9 AM and dusk* on any of our outdoor ranges. This is strictly enforced, and there is never any exception to this rule.  ( * Note: See the range rules for exact times, which vary seasonally.)

 

When can I shoot when using our indoor ranges?

Our indoor range can be used 24 hours a day by members who have been qualified.

 

What can I shoot on our outdoor ranges?

Any legal hand gun or long gun.  (See the Range Rules for specific restrictions.)

Please note that fully automatic (Class 3) firearms, or any simulation thereof, are never allowed at any of our ranges.

In general, you can only shoot at paper targets that are properly positioned in a target holder. We never allow anything to be shot at when it is on the ground. All shooting should be parallel to the ground.  All bullets must impact safely into the face of the berms.  So there is no shooting of bottles (plastic or glass), cans, etc. allowed.

 

What can I shoot on our indoor ranges?

Any legal hand gun up to and including 45 caliber can be used on our indoor range. Additionally .22 LR rim-fire rifles may be used on our indoor range.

Please note that fully automatic (Class 3) firearms, or any simulation thereof, are never allowed at any of our ranges.

Targets on the indoor range must be at least 25 feet away.
