Club Membership documentation, range rules and the club bylaws.
Due to affiliation and insurance requirements, all club members are required to be members of the National Rifle Association when they join and are required to keep their NRA membership active while a member of Durham Pistol & Rifle Club.
All members must be at least 18 years old.
All members must be able to pass a NICS background check.
All club members have a gate pass granting them access to our facilities. Shooting hours are 08:00 AM to dusk Monday through Saturday and 10:00 am to dusk on Sunday. Indoor activities may be scheduled in the clubhouse in the evenings. Ranges are occasionally closed for scheduled club events such as work days or matches. Members are responsible for checking the club calendar to ensure the range they desire to use is not closed for a match or maintenance.
Pistol and rifle matches are open to members of the public and provide an excellent opportunity to see the club and its members in action.
Our National Rifle Association club number is C0571.
Our Civilian Marksmanship Program affiliated club number is 36044.
Annual dues are $180 per year. This amount will be prorated on a quarterly basis based upon the date the new member joins (if you join July 1st, you only pay 50% of the annual dues for that year).
Upon joining the club, new members must pay an initiation fee of $150 and a capital facilities fee of $100.
Annual dues may be reduced for activity that supports the club. No dues are charged to club officers or match directors.

Steps to join
The DPRC currently has a membership cap of 1300 members. Persons interested in joining should register for our waiting list.

In March of each year, the number of DPRC members will be reviewed (some members will not renew) once the number of openings is determined that number of individuals will be contacted and invited to attend a club orientation session. *Orientation is invitation only.
The wait list for membership is booked, and all new applicants are looking at a potential wait of 4-5 years.
*Competition and Education Events are open to the public so you can still come out and shoot at matches without being a member or a guest.
